What we've not seen though is an explicit defensive phaser fire against incoming photon torpedoes.
...Although Kirk apparently called for that very thing in ST2, against Khan's last torpedo in the first fight.
But was it really meant for the torpedo or for the Reliant? Kirk only asked to divert all power to phasers but he had not declared a target. When they were being chased into the nebula, Kirk had a chance to use phasers to blow up the torpedo Reliant fired at them but he didn't do it. It just doesn't seem like photon torpedoes are something that can be easily destroyed...
