  • 300ml crème fraîche

  • zest and juice of 1 lemon fresh parsley (you can also use dill or thyme)

  • 1 packet of pre-rolled puff pastry, approx. 320g

  • Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.

Cut the fish into approx. 3cm chunks.

Mix the fish with the crème fraîche in a medium bowl.

Add the zest and juice of the lemon to the fish.

Season with the herbs, remove a portion for baby, then add salt and pepper (for toddlers and adults) and set aside.

Use the top of a mug to cut out discs of pu pastry and set aside. Pour the fish mixture evenly into 4 ovenproof mugs.
Place a pastry disc on top of each mug.

Bake in the oven for 20–30 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the pastry is golden.
