    • 1kg potatoes, peeled and halved
    • 400ml milk
    • 25g butter, plus a knob
    • 25g plain flour
    • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
    • 1 pack of fish pie mix, around 400g
    • 1 teaspoon English mustard
    • A small bunch of chives, finely snipped
    • A handful of frozen sweetcorn
    • A handful of frozen petits pois
    • A handful of grated cheddar


    • Put the potatoes into a pan of boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes. Test them with a skewer and it should go in easily.

    • Remove from the water and drain in a colander. Mash with butter, milk, salt and pepper.

    • Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.

    • For the fish pie mix, heat the butter in a pan and cook the onion until soft.

    • Add the fish pie mix, cook for 1 minute, then add the mustard and boil for 1 minute.

    • Heat the milk in a pan, careful not to boil. Mix the flour into the milk mixture. Remove from the heat and add the butter.

    • Also add the finely snipped chives, a handful of sweetcorn and a handful of petits pois.

    • Pour the fish mixture into an ovenproof dish or 6 ramekins.

    • Spoon the mashed potato on top of the fish mixture and then sprinkle the grated cheddar on it.

    • Place into the oven at 180c for 25 minutes or until golden brown and edges are bubbling.

    • Serving Suggestions: Serve with a Savoy Cabbage, which works well as a side dish. This recipe also goes well with quick braised lettuce and peas and carrots.
