180 g Marinated Feta
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of cracked pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten

2. Transfer to a bowl and add the banana pepper, onion, mint, dill, parsley, garlic and chilli.

3. Chop the feta into small pieces and add to the mix. Season with salt and pepper, add the egg and flour and give the mixture a good stir.
