A total classic and just great anytime. A huge family favourite, and comfort food at it’s best for me. You can alter this recipe to your own tastes too, I like the dijon mustard in it but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200c, then get the spinach and peas in a bowl to defrost, then peel your potatoes and cut into chunks to boil, and also boil your eggs. I sometimes do this in the same pot to save dishes! Give the potatoes about 15-20 minutes, or just until soft throughout (check with a knife), and give the eggs a max of 4 mins, so just put these in at the beginning and remove with a large spoon. Once boiled set the eggs aside to cool, drain your potatoes and mash with a splash of millk and a generous chiunk of butter.
  2. Now place your raw fish and bay leaf in a pan and cover with the milk, bring to the boil then simmer gently for 5 mins. Remove the fish from the pan, with a slotted slice and set aside to cool.
  3. Now melt the butter in a pot, and stir in the flour firmly to make a roux. Then slowly add the milk from the fish pan, straining through the sieve, and stirring constantly until all of the milk has been added. Stir and bring to the boil slowly (about 5-10 minGet utes) until the sauce coats the back of your wooden spoon. I add my peas and spinach now (sieve the spinach to rid of any extra water), and give the sauce a good stir. Add your dijon mustard now if you are using it too.
  4. Now get the dish out that you will bake your pie in. Flake the fish into the dish, checking for and removing any bones and removing any skin. Add the prawns (and smoked salmon if you are using it)now too, and pour over the white sauce. Peel your eggs, and halve, or quarter them and arrange them on top of the fish mix. Now cover with your mashed potato, and sprinkle with some cheese. Now bake in the oven for about 40 minutes. Delicious!
