Ingredients (serves 6):

    24 large scampi
    12 sheets of filo pastry
    1 bunch of basil
    Salt, pepper
    Olive oil

Method:

Shell the scampi tails. Add salt and pepper.

Pluck out 24 leaves from the bunch of basil.

Cut each of the filo pastry sheets into two semi-circles. On each semi-circle, place 1 scampi and 1 basil leaf.

Wrap the pastry around the scampi and basil, and hold in place with a cocktail stick.

Heat up a bit of olive oil in a frying pan over a high heat and brown the pastry-wrapped scampi for 3 to 5 minutes until they're golden.

Serve with a yoghurt/lemon/herb sauce or a yoghurt/lemon/pesto sauce.
