"A triangle shaped fried appetizer famous throughout the Middle East. This is my mothers recipe for her tuna filled ones. If you can find Italian tuna packed in olive oil, this is most preferable." — Avon- status quo PRO

I had some leftover fyllo dough and decided to try this out. The first one I folded was a little sloppy but then I realized I didnt have to go all the way to the edges when folding and they came out a lot tighter. Instead of frying I baked them at 350F for 25 minutes or a little longer depending on how crispy you want them. I sprayed the baking sheet with oil and then sprayed the briks. Thank you for this recipe! I will make this again.
In Morocco we call them Briwat. You can replace tuna with chicken, seafood or ground beef.
This recipe was a huge hit at my Moroccan-themed dinner party.
