    Title: Pastels (Fried Fish Pies)
    Categories: Pastry, Chilies, Seafood, Herbs, Vegetables
    Yield: 24 servings

    1 3/4 c Flour
    1 lg Egg; lightly beaten
    2 tb Oil; more for frying
    2 cl Garlic; rough chopped
    1 md Yellow onion; fine chopped
    1 Habañero or Scotch bonnet
    - chile; stemmed, seeded,
    - minced
    8 oz White fish
    4 Sprigs parsley; fine
    - chopped
    2 Leaves basil; fine chopped
    2 Sprigs cilantro; fine
    - chopped
    Salt & fresh ground pepper

    Combine flour, egg, and 6 tbsp. water in a bowl and stir
    until dough begins to form into a shaggy mass; transfer
    dough to a work surface and knead until all flour is
    absorbed and dough is smooth, about 6 minutes. Wrap
    dough in plastic wrap and let sit for 1 hour. Meanwhile,
    heat oil in a 2 qt. saucepan over medium-high heat; add
    garlic, onion, and chile, and cook, stirring, until
    soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to
    a bowl. Stir in fish, parsley, cilantro, basil, and salt
    and pepper; set filling aside.

    Using a rolling pin, roll dough into a 1/8"-thick
    circle; using a 3" round cutter, cut out about 24
    circles from dough. Place about 1 tsp. filling in the
    center of a dough circle, and using your finger, wet the
    edge of half the circle; close circle over filling to
    create a half moon and press on the edges to seal. Using
    a fork, crimp edges to close; repeat with remaining
    filling and dough circles.

    Pour oil to a depth of 2" in a 6-qt. Dutch oven and heat
    over medium-high heat until a deep fry thermometer reads
    350ºF/175ºC. Working in batches, fry pies until golden
    brown and filling is cooked through, about 6 minutes.

    Transfer pies to parchment paper to drain; serve hot
    with kaani sauce.

    Yield: makes about 2 dozen
