    The same shape, but smaller than…

  1. Mix the mango, red chilli, red onion and a handful coriander leaves, then mix with the lime juice and sweet chilli sauce. Season.

  2. Divide between 32 mini croustade cups (in the supermarket bakery area) and serve within 1 hr so they’ll be firm.

Fresh, tasty and much admired for very little effort. A firm favourite

Sainsburys and Waitrose do the croustade cups. This was delicious. We also do them with duck, hoi sin and spring onions. Also pop some caramelised red onion and soft goat's cheese in them - then add a mix of egg and cream and bake - awesome!

I couldn't find croustade cups so I made them out of white bread with butter and worked very well. Delicious!

I took these to a party and wished I had doubled the amount. They went in a few minutes. Fill the cases just before serving as they go soggy.

I made these as part of a canapés spread, they are a fantastic, quick and easy vegetarian canapé and a little different from the 'norm'. A few tips, cut the mango and the onion into a very fine dice - difficult but worth it, drain the mixture in a sieve to avoid too much liquid, fill the cups at the last minute, and finally add a good hot chilli!

Quite sweet- but very tasty with a good spicy lime kick. Im definitely doing these for our new years party. I think I would use less sweet chilli sauce next time to let the fresher flavours stand out more.

Made these for a Thai dinner party starter. They were really delicious, I didn't overdo the chilli. Really beautiful flavours!

Excellent! Did them on Christmas Day, without the sweet chilli sauce, because I didn't have any, but they were still delicious. Also did he prawn and chorizo skewers with gremolata, pictured alongside - again, delist.

Really delicious - fresh and zingy and a great accompaniment to other richer canapés. These were a big hit with my guests who hoovered them all up in no time with plenty of requests for the recipe! Super-easy to make ahead too, I prepped the filling in advance minus the dressing then simply poured it on, gave it a stir and filled the cups just before serving. The filling actually benefits from being chilled straight from the fridge as it made these even more refreshing. Will definitely make again - so simple!
