For Filling

  • 2 (180 grams) canned tuna in brine (well drained)
  • 1/2 cup Lady's Choice real mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped white onion
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped celery stalk
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped carrot

For Crust

  • 1 - 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 butter or margarine, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 pc egg
  • 2-4 tbsp cold water

For Puff Pastry

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry sheets



  • Combine all the filling ingredients. Mix well then set aside in chiller.


  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add egg and half of the water. Mix until it forms into a dough. Chill covered in plastic film for at least 30 mins before rolling out.

  • Roll out dough until 1/4 inch thick. Cut out 12 rectangular pieces.

  • Put a scoopful of filling in the center of each rectangular dough. Brush the edges with water. Cover with another sheet and press the sides with a fork to seal. Fry in hot oil just until pies are nicely browned.

Puff pastry

  • Fill in the filling in the pastry, arrange on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 deg preheated oven for 15-20 mins or until lightly browned. Let cook and serve.

If you have a sandwich maker/press, you may use sliced white breads. Just sandwich the filling and press into the sandwich maker. Toast until lightly browned.
