Pastry

  • 2 cups Plain Flour
  • 125 grams Cold Butter
  • 2 Egg Yolks

  7. Grease eight 3cm (1 1/4 inch) deep loose-based flan tins, measuring 8 cm (3 inches) across the base.
  8. Divide pastry into 8 equal pieces and roll out so they are large enough to fit and overlap the tins.
  9. Fit the pastry into the tins and trim off any excess using a sharp knife.
  10. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.Preheat the oven to 190 degrees.
  11. Blind bake for 10 minutes, then remove your paper and weights and bake for a further 10 minutes.
  12. To make the filling, place crabmeat, spring onions, beaten eggs, cream, cheese, chopped dill and lemon rind in an bowl.
  13. Divide the prawns between the pastry shells.
  14. The crab mixture will be quite thick, so use a fork to help spread it over the prawns.
