Delicious Maltese-style spinach pie.   

Serves 4
  • 500g frozen spinach, boiled and well-drained
  • 50 g black olives, chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tin anchovies, chopped
  • 1 big tin tuna,
  • salt, pepper, paprika to season
  • sesame seeds to top the pie
  • Pie pastry

Heat some oil in a saucepan, add the onion. Fry for 3 minutes until softened. Add the olives, tuna, anchovies and spinach and mix well. Make sure that the spinach is drained well after boiling, as otherwise it would wetten the pastry. Season to taste. 

Grease a baking dish and line with the pastry. Put in the filling and cover. Brush with egg or oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190 degrees C until pastry is golden brown.
