Feta Phyllo Parcels with Honey

Method

  • Place a pan over medium heat.
  • Add a generous amount of Greek extra virgin olive oil and heat to 180* C.
  • Place the feta cheese on some paper towels to drain from excess liquid and moisture. Cover with another paper towel and gently press on them just a little to dry them off.
  • Cut it in to 5 pieces.
  • Dredge them in some flour. This will help keep the feta dry while cooking, so that the phyllo doesn’t get soggy from its juices.
  • Spread out the sheets of phyllo and cut them in half, lengthwise.
  • Work with one sheet of phyllo at a time.
  • Drizzle with a little Greek extra virgin olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with some chili flakes.
  • Place a piece of feta cheese at the bottom part of the phyllo.
  • Start to wrap it by folding it over again and again.
  • Don’t wrap it too tight… leave some air inside and try to work gently not to rip the phyllo.
  • When you’ve wrapped about ¾ (three quarters) of the phyllo, turn the sides inward and keep wrapping till the end to make a nice little parcel!
  • Do the same with the rest of the feta and phyllo.
  • When the oil is hot enough place the feta parcels in the pan, seam side down.
  • You can check if your oil is hot enough by dipping a small piece of phyllo in to the oil. When it starts to sizzle, it is ready.
  • As soon as they become golden on the first side, flip them over and fry them until they are golden and crunchy on the other side also.
  • When ready, transfer to a plate with that is lined with some paper towels. Let them drain from the excess oil for about 2 minutes.
  • Drizzle with some honey, some thinly sliced chili, chili flakes and fresh coriander.

For the Greek salad 

  • In a bowl, add the lime zest, lime juice, Greek extra virgin olive oil and honey.
  • Stir until smooth.
  • Add the cucumber, onion, tomato, chili and fresh coriander.
  • Toss and serve.
