  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the fish onto a non-stick baking sheet and season all over. Mix the dill and soft cheese in a small bowl, then stir in the prawns, taking care not to break them up. Season with black pepper, then spread evenly over the fish.

  2. Brush the filo sheets with the oil, then cut into thick strips. Scrunch the pastry up a little and crumple on top of the fish. Scatter with parmesan, then bake for 10 mins until the fish is cooked through and the pastry is crisp and golden. (If you’ve used raw prawns, check they’re cooked through.) Serve with green beans or a salad with your choice of potatoes.

Did this on Good Friday as wanted to serve fish - and had a visitor who isn't too keen. It was very good and easy to prepare. Even my visitor ate it all! Will do again

I have cooked this dish several times for dinner parties and friends. It is easy to prep earlier in the dayand as it takes such a short cooking time , can be popped in the oven just prior to serving the starter. It tastes delicious, looks sophisticated and goes down very well!
