Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Season the fish all over, then wrap each fillet in a slice of ham. Put into a large baking dish. Dot the crème fraîche between the fillets and over the exposed ends of the fish. Dot the pesto around the fish, too. Scatter with the cheese.

  2. Bake the fish for 15-20 mins, adding the pine nuts halfway through, until the crème fraîche has made a sauce around the fish, and the cheese and ham are turning golden. Serve with plenty of crusty bread to mop up the sauce.

Used reduced fat creme fraiche & pesto. Left off the pine nuts and added cherry tomatoes. Used Basa fillets as that's what we had. Really tasty dinner and will definitely make it again as so easy.

Nice recipe. I didn't have creme fraiche but had soured cream so used that instead. I used about 4 tbsp of it - I think 200g would be far too much, even for creme fraiche. It still made a nice sauce, but did split a little. I served with new potatoes and broccoli - really nice.

Tasty and looked good! Easy! served with peas and new pots. Used low fat creme fraiche ( and half quantity fish) and kept oven at 180 and no curdling. As per comment, not too much ham or the fish does not cook. used a jar of pesto. need shallow dish or the sauce swamps the fish. will do again.

Love this. Don't even always bother with the ham and pine nuts and is still very tasty. Agree that the sauce doesn't look that appealing but don't let that put you off!

It's amazing how DELICIOUS this recipe is with so few ingredients! I've made this twice now, once with chicken and just last night with monkfish, both times with homemade pesto. Must admit I prefer it with chicken, I did find that the monkfish released a lot of liquid so the sauce was quite runny. I tried the tip about adding the creme fraiche later and turning the oven down but it still curdled, please don't let this put you off, it still tastes amazing.

Really really simple to do. My sauce curdled/split too which I only found out after reading peoples comments is a common problem so I have to say the overall look was disappointing but the taste won hands down! Definitely will do again, my husband loved it!
