This amazingly simple and easy to prepare delicacy features spicy and delicious shrimps kernels and crab sticks wrapped in a tender puff pastry sprinkled with savory sesame seeds and it can be used as an excellent appetizer - if in smaller bits - or as a whole meal [it is quite satisfyiyng] sided by a greenery salad on a more busy or lazy day.The rich flavour of the filling together with the crisp puff pastry is a combination made in heaven! Enjoy!
3 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic
4 tablespoons mustard
500gr shrimp kernels
250gr crab sticks
2 puff pastry sheets
In a frying pan place the butter and minced garlic. Add the shrimp kernels, salt and ground chili to taste. Let cook fo5 minutes. Add the sliced crab sticks and the mustard. Simmer and let cook for about 10m - until the sauce evaporates a bit. Place the filling into the puff pastry sheet but prick the bottom with a fork first and cover with another one. Press the sides with a fork. Give some cuts on top with the tip of a knife. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Take to a pre heated oven at 180º until golden brown.
Hair and face need an extra care during winter. These are my favourites from the past month. I hope you'll enjoy them!
1. I was looking for a mud mask that refreshed and deep
cleaned my skin well without stripping itand the
powermud by Glam Glow is super easy to use, as the texture is very soft in the jar and so easy to spread because of the oils
inside. It smells nice, almost spa like.
I usually apply a thinner layer and find it enough. The mask tingles a tiny bit , it tightens up while
it dries and I wash it off after 10-15 minutes . Usually I add some
warm water on my face to massage it, providing a mild exfoliation
because of some micro particles inside. The dried mud just feels
more emollient in contact with water, but the good thing is that it just
makes it so easy to take off compared to many other cleasing masks, and
it does not strip my skin of its natural oils. Price is steep but a little goes a long way with the products - I find
all Glamglow masks last at least 6 months if not longer.
2. I had been dying to try dry shampoo because my fine hair doesn't tolerate daily washes and after having watched a video by Jeanne Damas [one of the latest French beauty icons] recommending it and I decided to immediately take the plunge. I've found that this one actually adds volume to certain
areas of the crown., it helps my hair feel more full and textured and it helps control some oil. You can
spray it on your roots to freshen your hairstyle. Klorane does not irritate my scalp and smells greatly. The only con is that it isn't cheap.and it's not completely invisible when sprayed onto the hair, so you have to blend it in When
you first spray your hair, you’ll see some powdery residue that is easy
to blend in with a hairbrush or a good tousle with fingers. I now have highlights so I buy this version. I use sparingly, a few short bursts on the roots, and
brush. It's best not to overdo it, or to use it several days in a row.
It doesn't replace normal shampooing, but can be used many ways between
3. This is a really nice eye cream, with a delightful mousse-like texture that absorbs quite quickly. It is hydrating and feels good on, but not
intensively oily/heavy feeling. It works all day in making my eye
skin feel rejuvenated, tighter and brightener. My eyes are do not have dark
circles nor are they puffy, so I can't attest to how it works on those
issues. I love the
packaging, the light fragrance, and silky light feeling when applying. The bottle of 15mm lasts a long time, because you do not need to use
much at a time. Because the color is a light yellow, it acts as a
mini-concealer. On a
side note, when you reach the bottom of the container, and the pump no
longer brings up the cream, you can pry off the top and put the inside
container in a clean medicine jar.
