  • 2 Handfuls of Prawns
  • 5 Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 4 Leeks Fried and Sliced
  • 3 Handfuls of Peas
  • Small Handful of Parsley
  • Small Handful of Dill
  • 1 Lemon and Zest

  • 25g Flour
  • 400ml Milk
  • 1kg of Potatoes
  • 1tbsp Mustard
  • Handful of Cheddar Cheese Grated
  • Bunch of Chives Sliced

Directions

  1. Heat Oven 180℃ and bake your potatoes (if you haven’t the time to wait for the potatoes to bake you can always boil them)
  2. Heat butter in a pot on a medium heat
  3. Once melted add flour and whisk
  4. Once you can smell the flour cooking, add milk bit by bit whisking at all times to prevent any lumps from forming
  5. When the sauce is a thick and a smooth consistency, remove from the heat
  6. Add fresh herbs, cooked peas, half of the cooked leeks and lemon zest to your sauce
  7. Place fish inside of a baking dish and scatter over prawns
  8. Slice hard boiled eggs and arrange on top of the fish
  9. Pour over white sauce, lemon juice and season
  10. Place a layer of spinach on top
  11. Take the potatoes out of the oven once baked
  12. Peel potatoes and throw away skins (they will be very hot so wear a pair of marigolds whilst doing this)
  13. Place the fluffy potatoes in a bowl and add butter with splash of warm milk whilst you mash. Season and taste as you go adding enough butter and milk to your liking.
  14. Add cheddar cheese, the remaining cooked leeks, mustard and chives to your mash and mix well
  15. Spoon mash over the fish
  16. Bake in the Oven for 25mins until golden and bubbling
  17. Whack the grill on and place the fish pie on the top shelf of your oven under the grill for a few minutes to help it get a crispy top!
  18. Once you’ve got a crispy top take it out and serve with a delicious green salad!

For a healthier version, Sweet Potato Mash works really well, just leave the milk out!
