  4. Unwrap a 270g pack of fresh filo pastry and halve each sheet of pastry so you have 12 squares. Take a square and fold it in half to make a rectangle. Put 1 heaped tablespoon of the filling at the bottom left of the rectangle. Fold the right corner of the pastry over the filling to cover it and form a triangle. Fold the triangle up, then to the right-hand side, and keep folding until you reach the end of the strip.
