Lovely Meal

These little pasties are served as 'tapas' or snacks in many Spanish bars to accompany a pre-dinner drink.

They are quite delicious, and if you're not careful, they will all be gone before you've had a chance to turn the oven off!

Preparation Time:  15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes

 Pastry (Use the same quantity as in my recipe for Pastry)  1 tblsp olive oil 
 1 small tin tuna, drained ( or equivalent qty fresh cooked tuna)  1 tblsp chili sauce
 1 tblsp tomato puree   1/2 teasp sugar
 1 tblsp vinegar  1 tinned red pimiento, finely chopped


Mix together all the ingredients apart from the pastry. Add a little water if the mixture seems too dry. Roll out the pastry very thinly, and cut out 3 inch rounds - I use the top of a pint glass.

Place a teaspoonful of the tuna mixture onto each round of pastry. Moisten the edges of the pastry with a little water, fold over to make a semi-circle, and press down the edges firmly with a fork. Place on a baking tray and bake in a medium oven for 10-15 minutes.

Serve with a glass of chilled dry sherry.
