One of the best Tunisian dishes comes in the form of a crispy, delicious brik. What is this brik? It is a thin pastry, wrapped around a filling, and usually deep-fried. Fillings usually consist of tuna, meat, egg, and cheese. We’ve made ours with tuna, and we’ve flavored it with onion, parsley, and some Gouda!

Ingredients Needed for Tunisian Brik

3.5 ounces of canned tuna
1 onion, chopped
½ cup fresh parsley, chopped
salt
pepper
2 phyllo sheets
2.5 ounces of gouda
2 eggs
¼ cup parmesan, shredded
vegetable oil for frying

How to Cook Tunisian Brik

  1. Add the canned tuna in a large bowl. Add onion, parsley, and season with salt and pepper. Stir.
  2. Slice the phyllo pastry in 2 squares, around 10 inches (25 cm) long.
  3. Add half of the mixture on one side of the pastry and fold it using the other side.
  4. Top with half of the Gouda, one egg, and half of the parmesan.
  5. Do the same with the rest of your ingredients, in order to make one more brik.
  6. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook each brik until golden and crispy, around 1-2 minutes total time.
