Easy Sardine Puff

Sardin Puff1

I bought 3 packets of this frozen puff pastry the other day and decided to give it a try today. I made this Sardine Puff for teatime snack today. The puff turn out very crispy and flaky. I found it's a bit too oily but overall it's yummy!! Great to be eaten with a cup of hot coffee on raining day...hehe!!

I wrapped the puffs this way for a change, rather than wrapping it in the traditional pillow puff and surprisingly it turn out just great. I love to see how it cracked open on the top and show it's fillings.

I love making this easy sardin puff too but I used the frozen paratha (roti canai) It is less oily than the puff pastry.

I also just use the same brand of frozen pastry to make chicken pie, but I think the suggestion by Icook4fun to use frozen paratha would be a good idea for my next trip, since less oily..Anyway, your this puff is simple and delicious..
