  2. Preheat the oven to 160C/325F/Gas 3. Generously butter six individual ramekin dishes.

  3. Lay the smokies in a baking dish and heat through in the oven for 10 minutes. Carefully remove the skin and bones from the smokies, then slake the flesh into a bowl.

  4. Mash the fish with a fork and work in the cheese, then the eggs. Add the lemon juice and season with pepper to taste.

  5. Divide the fish mixture among the six ramekins and place in a roasting tin. Pour hot water into the roasting tin to come halfway up the dishes. Bake for 30 minutes, until just set.
