Ingredients

  • Knob of butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 leeks, finely sliced
  • 6 spring onions, sliced
  • 300ml double cream
  • 300ml whole milk
  • Grated zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 100g finely grated parmesan
  • Large handful of fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 225g smoked un-dyed haddock fillet, skinned, pin-boned (use tweezers) and cut into large chunks
  • 300g salmon fillet, skinned, pin-boned and cut into large chunks
  • 150g large raw prawns, peeled and de-veined
  • 75g fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 25g flaked almonds

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Heat the butter and 1 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan. Fry the leek for 5 minutes until golden and softened, adding the spring onion for the final 2 minutes.
  2. Add the cream, milk, lemon zest and juice. Season with black pepper, bring to a simmer, then remove from the heat and stir through 75g of the parmesan and half the chopped parsley.
  3. Spoon the fish and prawns evenly into a shallow 1.8 litre ovenproof dish (about 28cm x 21cm x 5cm). Pour over the cheesy leek sauce.
  4. Make the topping by mixing the breadcrumbs in a bowl with the flaked almonds and the remaining parmesan, oil and parsley. Spoon over the filling. Place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the topping is golden. Serve with green beans or a crisp green salad, if you like.
