Puff pastry shells with Christmas salad

Puff pastry shells with Christmas salad


  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 200g (1 cup) imitation crab, chopped
  • 9 hard-boiled quail eggs, peeled
  • 200g (1 ¼ cup) canned corn, drained
  • 1 medium cucumber, chopped
  • 120g (½ cup) mayonnaise
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • Egg wash


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F.

2. Cut puff pastry into circles using a cookie cutter with a wavy edge. Cut the bottom part of each circle, flatten it out slightly and score lines on the top of the pastry imitating the lines on the shell.

3. Brush each pastry shell with egg wash and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and puffy. Let cool down, make a slit and open a shell.

4. In a medium bowl combine chicken eggs, crab, corn, cucumber, and mayonnaise. Mix to combine.

5. Fill each shell with the salad and decorate using a quail egg as a pearl.
