Author's Notes

Serves 4-6.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
step 2
Wilt the Fresh Baby Spinach (13 1/3 cups) in a steamer and once cool enough to handle, squeeze out the excess liquid. Set aside until needed.
step 3
In a casserole, melt Irish Butter (1/2 Tbsp) over medium heat and fry the Onion (1) in it until soft and translucent.
step 4
Add in the Garlic (2 cloves) and Green Chili Peppers (3) and fry until soft.
step 5
Add the Frozen Cooked Prawns (14 oz) and season with Sea Salt (to taste), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 Tbsp). Cook until the tails are firm – about 3-4 minutes.
step 6
Finely chop the Fresh Dill (1 handful) and add to the casserole before crumbling in the Feta Cheese (2 cups). Stir to combine.
step 7
Add in the drained spinach. Combine and set aside.
step 8
Using a wet tea towel to keep the excess pastry damp while you work, layer three sheets of Phyllo Dough (1.1 lb) down on a flat surface, brushing Butter (1 cup) between each one.
step 9
Use a sharp knife to slice the phyllo sheets lengthwise into three sections.
step 10
Working with one section at a time, dollop a heaping Tbsp of the spinach mixture at the top of the pastry and fold it over into a triangular shape, making sure the edges of the phyllo are aligned. Repeat this movement until you have a triangular pocket.
step 11
Arrange the folded spanakopita across a lined baking sheet and brush with more melted butter.
step 12
Sprinkle a few Cumin Seeds (to taste) over the top of the pies and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
step 13
Let the pies cool slightly before serving.
