  3. Add 1 quarter of the crab mixture to the middle of the dough.
  4. Moisten the edges of the phyllo with the olive oil and carefully fold over the remaining dough, to create a parcel (triangle, square or roll shape)

Salsa Verde:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and place tomatillos on a lined sheet tray. Bake until tomatillos are even chard, 5-8 mins. Cool tomatillos.
  2. Combine tomatillos, cilantro, pepper/chilli, onion, lime juice and 1 tsp salt in a food processor and pulse. Consistency can be more smooth or chunky depending on preference.
