Ingredients

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Olive oil

2 tsp

Brown onion

1 medium, finely chopped

Celery

1 individual, chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Reduced-fat milk

1¼ cup(s)

Smoked fish

400 g, (trout), fillets, skin removed, flaked

Fresh lemon rind

1 tsp, finely grated

Reduced-fat puff pastry

1 individual

Egg(s)

Cornflour

3 tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 220°C or 200°C fan-forced. Lightly spray four 1-cup (250ml) capacity ovenproof dishes with oil.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, celery and garlic and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until softened. Combine milk and cornflour in a jug and add to onion mixture. Bring to the boil and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until sauce bubbles and thickens. Stir in trout and rind. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Spoon trout mixture into prepared dishes. Cut pastry into quarters. Top dishes with pastry, pressing edges to seal. Trim excess. Make leaf shapes using excess pastry to decorate tops. Brush tops with egg. Bake for 12–15 minutes or until pastry is golden. Serve.

Notes
