juice and rind, chives, parsley, egg and oil in a food processor. Whizz
until smooth, then season to taste. Roll out the pastry to a long, oval

the sides together, criss-cross the cut strips over each other and secure
them with beaten egg. Fold one end into a triangle to make the shape of a

bake for 35-40 minutes. The fish is ready when a skewer inserted between
the plaits comes out clean.
