Ingredients

  • 40g Essential Unsalted Butter
  • 800g Waitrose Echalion Shallots, cut into 2cm-thick rounds
  • 3 tbsp Essential Balsamic Vinegar
  • caster sugar
  • 3 sprig/s rosemary
  • 320g sheet all-butter puff pastry

Method

  1. Heat the butter in a 26-28cm ovenproof frying pan over a medium-high heat. When foaming, add the shallots, packing them tightly in the base of the pan, cut-side down. Fry for 5 minutes, swirling the pan occasionally until golden. Season the tops of the shallots, then carefully turn them using a spoon and fork. Season again, then fry for another 5 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Sprinkle the vinegar and sugar over the shallots, then swirl and cook for 2-3 minutes until syrupy. Take the pan off the heat; cool for 5-10 minutes.

  3. Nestle the rosemary sprigs between the shallots (or pick off the leaves first and just use these, if preferred). If the pastry isn’t wide enough to cover the pan, roll it out a little on its paper, then lay it over the shallots. Use scissors to trim the pastry, leaving enough to tuck in around the side of the pan, encasing the shallots.

  4. Pierce the pastry a few times with a fork, then transfer the pan to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes until crisp and golden. Cool for 5 minutes before carefully turning out onto a plate. Serve with a well-dressed green salad, if liked

Leftovers

Puff pastry trimmings

Don’t throw away the offcuts! They can be re-rolled to make cheese straws, pinwheels or palmier biscuits.
