An excellent alternative to Tabasco is Picka peppa sauce, which is found in shops specializing in West Indian food. This is sweet as well as hot: about 1/4 teaspoon is enough.

  • 9 oz cod or haddock fillets
  • 1 tablespoon wine vinegar
  • 1/2 pint cold water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 1/4 red pepper deseeded and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 tablespoons canned chopped tomatoes
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 dashes Tabasco
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 13 oz frozen puff pastry defrosted
  • 1 egg white lightly beaten


  • Put the fish in a heavy pan with the vinegar and water, bring just to the boil, then lower the heat slightly and simmer gently for 10 minutes.
  • Drain the fish and, when cool enough to handle, skin, bone and flake the flesh.
  • Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and fry gently for 5 minutes until soft and lightly coloured. Add the red pepper and parsley and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add the flaked fish, together with tomatoes, lemon juice, Tabasco, 1 teaspoon salt and a generous sprinkling of pepper. Simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for a further 10-12 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer to a bowl, taste, adjust seasoning and leave to cool.
  • Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a 40 x 30 cm/16 x 12 inch rectangle.
  • Heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas7.
  • Cut the pastry into twelve 10 cm/4 inch squares. Place a portion of the fish mixture in the centre of each square, then lightly dampen the pastry edges with cold water and fold each square into a triangle. Press the edges together, then crimp with a fork to seal well.
  • Arrange the patties well apart on 2 baking sheets and brush the surfaces with egg white, then prick each patty with a fork 2 - 3 times. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown.
