    Queen Dragon Mom's Note:

    From spanakopita to baklava, the Greeks know how to use phyllo! Here the flaky dough encloses a mixture of spinach, cheese and shrimp, lightly seasoned with lemon. The rolls are easy to make and delicious to eat, particularly with a Greek salad of tomatoes, feta, olives and bell peppers alongside.

      Separate 1 sheet of the phyllo dough; lay it on the work surface with the long side toward you.
    11. 11
      (Keep the stack of remaining dough covered with plastic wrap to prevent it from drying.).

      Lightly brush the sheet with a little of the melted butter; lay another sheet evenly on top.

      Good recipe. The next time I make this dish I'll use a strong cheese [maybe Goat Cheese]. The feta cheese was not distinctive. I'll also add some salt to it.

      We've made quite a lot of changes to the recipe, so I'm not rating it, but we 've been very pleased by the result, so I wanted to share! We started with fresh spinach, so we added them to the onion together with the garlic and cooked them for a few minutes, until done. Then we let the mixture cool, salted it a little bit, but not too much since we used 2/3 cup goat milk feta and added about 3 tbsp grated pecorino romano in step 2. We also used more garlic (6 cloves, finely chopped)and shrimps (9 ounces frozen, then thawed a steamed and cut them into 1/2" pieces) and added a lightly beaten egg to the filling (even though I'm not sure it's essential ; I just did it because I usually do when I make spanakopita). And we made this into a pie ( in a 9" pie dish), using 4 lightly buttered phyllo sheets for the bottom a 3 sheets for the top. Only 2 tbsp butter were needed for brushing the dough sheets. We cooked it for 30 minutes at 350 F. Thank you for posting, Dragon Mom!
