A few weeks ago, I happenned to catch Rahm Fama, on meat and potatoes deep frying pastry, I can't even remember what the dish was, just that it was pastry, and deep fried.
Now this I had to try.
As luck would have it, I'd also just bought, Valentine Warner's book, What to eat now', with a recipe for mussel empanadas.
I'm afraid I bought the pastry, pastry making is not my strong point.
The stuffing for these was really easy and other than the mussels, I had everything to hand.
The end results, were rich, but sweet shellfish tasting, crispy, crumbly mouthfuls of heaven.
You have to try these, but perhaps not if prone to heart attacks. I believe they are around 3 million calories each!
