1 red onion, sliced

¼ cup white-wine vinegar

500g lamb mince

2 tbsp harissa

1 tbsp chopped dill

100g feta, chopped

1/3 cup pine nuts

24 sheets filo pastry

150g butter, melted

2 cups wild rocket

store-bought tzatziki


1 Preheat oven to 200°C. To make pickled onion, place onion and vinegar in a bowl. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper and 
toss to combine. Refrigerate until ready to use.

2 Place mince, harissa, dill, feta and pine nuts in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix until combined.

3 Brush a sheet of filo pastry with butter and top with another sheet of pastry. Repeat  until you have 6 layers. Do the same with remaining pastry until you have 4 stacks.

and firmly press down on 
the edges to seal pies. 
Repeat with remaining 
pastry sheets.

5 Brush tops of pies with butter and bake for 20 minutes or until pastry is golden. Serve with wild rocket, pickled onion and tzatziki.
