Lamb and paprika sausage rolls

all details

Pimenton, also known as Spanish paprika, is the powder of dried red capsicums. It can be sweet, hot, smoked or bitter-sweet. Introduced to Spain from South America as a decorative plant, pimenton is now an integral part of the Spanish kitchen, much like dashi is to Japanese cuisine or parmesan is to Italian cuisine. Tins of this spice, imported from Spain, are sold at good Australian delis and usually feature eye-catching artwork.

Ingredients

Filling:

500g coarsely ground lamb mince

80g finely diced onion

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tbsp smoked paprika

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

30g fresh breadcrumbs

20g grated parmesan

2 eggs

1 large pinch salt

1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary

1/2 lemon, rind finely grated

Casing:

2 sheets store-bought puff pastry

1 egg whisked with a little water

 

Method

Put filling ingredients in a bowl and mix well (if using an electric mixer, mix about 3 minutes with a paddle).

Cut each puff pastry sheet in half and put a quarter of the lamb mix in a piping bag, leaving a large piping hole. Pipe the mix lengthways along the pastry, 1 centimetre from the bottom.

Brush egg wash along the top of the pastry above the lamb, roll over and seal. Repeat with remaining pastry pieces and lamb mix to create four very long sausage rolls.

Place on baking tray lined with baking paper and put in the fridge for half an hour.

Pre-heat oven to 200C. Remove rolls from fridge, brush tops well with egg wash and cut into desired size (from a cocktail bite to lunch size). Return to lined tray, bake for about 12 minutes until golden.

  • There is no way these sausage rolls are ready in 12 minutes. Yes, they are very delicious, but they take 20-30 mins in the oven.
