Duck Confit and Apple Fillo Wraps (Cigars)


Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Heat the confit of duck in the oven until just heated through. Cool slightly before shredding the meat. Add the walnuts to this.

In a pan, heat the oil and sauté the apples and onions until caramelised with the sugar and 5 spice. This should take 5 minutes.

Take 2 filo sheets, brush with butter and sandwich together. Cut this in half. Place a small spoonful of the apple mixture and then the duck mixture on the bottom third of the pastry. Fold in the sides and then roll to form a cigar shape. Repeat the process.

Place on a baking tray and brush each cigar with butter. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm with some chutney
