READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Add the leek and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until softened.
  • Season the prawns and add to the pan. Stir for 2 minutes or until just cooked, then remove the prawns with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Add flour to the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add stock and wine and whisk to remove any lumps. Increase heat to medium then cook for 10 minutes or until liquid has reduced.
  • Stir in cream, then simmer for a further 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened and reduced by half. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Add lemon juice, herbs and mustard, then return the prawns to the mixture. Season, then cool completely.
  • Using shells or ramekins as a guide, cut 12 pastry lids, leaving a 5mm border. Make light incisions in the pastry lids, following the shape of the shells.
  • Divide filling among shells and top with pastry, pressing edges to seal. Chill for 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C.
  • Brush pastry lids with egg wash. Place pies on a tray and bake for 12-15 minutes until the pastry is cooked and golden.
