  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Pour the bechamel into a bowl and stir through the herbs, cheese, lemon juice and zest and some seasoning. Fold in the fish mix, then spoon into 2 x 400ml pudding bowls or ramekins. Unroll the pastry and cut 2 x 14cm discs, or the size to fit your ramekins. Brush the inside rim of the ramekins with egg, then top with the pastry discs, pressing to seal.
