Paint the pastry with melted butter and trim it down to the shape of a fish.
Fold over half of the pastry and paint it with melted butter again. Fold over the other side and smooth into a fish silhouette.
Paint the pastry again and decorate it with pastry scraps cut into the shapes of scales and fins.
