  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.

This is lovely, will make again with the Mediterranean version. We used Philadelphia Light garlic and herb soft cheese and it was really nice, everything went well together.

A really quick and delicious dinner. I used garlic & herb soft cheese as not a fan of dill & this substitute was really tasty! Served with baby potatoes & salad so all ready in 20mins.

I used salmon instead of haddock and spread it with a little green pesto instead of using dill - delicious!

A lovely simple fish dish. Have made it several times and it always turns out well. Much lighter than a traditional pie and far quicker to make.

How far ahead can you make this? Doesn't the pastry have to be last minute?
