Lobster Phyllo Trianges


Phyllo triangles are so light and flaky then you add the lobster filling to these they are a light and delicious appetizer to serve.

What you will need is:
A one pond package of phyllo pastry, dethawed
8 oz of flaked lobster
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
6 Scallions, chopped
1/4 cup white wine
1 1/2 Tablespoons flour
1/4 Cup Heavy Cream
A pinch of, salt, pepper and  cayenne pepper

How to make these:
Saute the scallions in 2 Tablespoons of butter once softened add the lobster
Add the wine, stirring frequently
In another skillet add the remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter, stir in the flour
Stir for 5 minutes
Add the cream
Once this starts to thicken add the lobster mixture to your pan , mix in the salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.
Let your mixture cool before you add to the Phyllo

Pre Heat your oven to 400 degrees
Lay your defrosted phyllo dough out on a cooking sheet, brush with butter and repeat in layers 2 more times.  Making that 3 sheets high
Cut the sheet length wise
Then again crosswise 6 more times
Spoon a teaspoon of your lobster onto the end of each strip
Form a triangle by folding the right hand corner towards the opposite corner, repeat until it is all rolled up
Brush the tops of your now finished triangles with butter again
Bake until golden brown approximately 10 minute

If you do not care for lobster there are several recipes out there that you can use this same method, such as spinach or a mushroom filled phyllo triangle

Hope you like it!
