Ingredients

Method

  • 400 g/14 oz boneless pollack, haddock or cod fillet, skinned + cut into chunks
  • 100 g/3½ oz cooked peeled prawns
  • 100 g/3½ oz frozen baby broad beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • A small handful of parsley, chopped
  • 25 g/1 oz unsalted butter
  • 20 g/¾ oz plain white flour
  • 300 ml/½ pint whole milk
  • 75 g/2½ oz Gruyère cheese, grated
  • 600 g/1 lb 5 oz Maris Piper potatoes, peeled + cut into 1 cm/½ inch cubes

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Scatter the fish, prawns, broad beans + onion in a 1.5 litre/2½ pint shallow pie dish. Sprinkle with the cornflour + toss the ingredients together. Sprinkle with the parsley.
  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan + stir in the flour. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute, then remove from the heat + gradually add the milk. Return to the heat + bring to the boil, stirring continuously, until the sauce thickens. (You might find a balloon whisk easier to beat the sauce + prevent it going lumpy.) Stir in two-thirds of the cheese.
  4. Spoon half the sauce into the dish + scatter with the potatoes. Spoon the remaining sauce over the potatoes + sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  5. Bake the pie in the oven for about 1¼ hours until golden + the potatoes are tender. Serve hot with steamed green vegetables.

Swap This For That

Swap the broad beans for frozen peas or sweetcorn or even grated carrot for a veggie twist
