  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/Gas 6 and lay out all ingredients. Unroll the filo and cut each sheet in half, creating 12 squares.
  2. Take 1 square and lay a mix of ingredients in a line down one side with a dash of soy sauce, leaving a 2cm border to the top, bottom and side. Brush the edges with butter, fold the top and bottom over to cover the filling then roll up tightly. Repeat to make 12 rolls, placing them on an oiled baking sheet as you go. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
