It's St David's Day this week so try this leek and prawn crumble. It is the most versatile recipe. Use the crumble to cover anything – roasted vegetables, ham and leeks. It freezes well and a green salad is all you need for an accompaniment. The breadcrumb mix is also marvellous as a topping for a fish pie when mashing potatoes never is quite enough to cover it.

Ingredients

6 medium leeks, sliced and steamed

500g/1lb cooked and peeled prawns (frozen or fresh)

600ml/1pt good cheese sauce

For the crumble: 150g/6oz white breadcrumbs

55g/2oz grated cheese (strong Cheddar or parmesan)

2 spring onions

Clove of garlic, chopped (optional)

1tbs chopped parsley

55g/2oz soft butter to rub in lightly

Method

Mix the leeks and prawns together and cover with the cheese sauce in a gratin dish. Cover with the crumble mixture.

Bake in oven, fan 170C/Gas Mark 4 for about 45min until bubbling and golden.
