    • 600–700g fish (salmon, white fillet or smoked haddock)
    • 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 and 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 puff 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.
