Stargazy pies and pasties
Stargazy pies are a traditional Cornish dish, with pilchard heads poking through the pastry, gazing up at the stars. As well as adding drama, the theory is that as the pies bake, the oil from the head and gills helps to baste the pastry. This easier version is a nod to the Cornish pasty. If the idea of heads and tails is a bit too much, they work just as well with filleted sardines completely encased in pastry.
