Hello everyone, Just finished making our dinner for this evening. It’s been a really lovely balmy warm day today so didn’t want anything heavy.

Now I appreciate most of you clever cooks on here have probably made dozens of Fish Pies, but will still share this one with you. I love this as it is so easy to do.  I normally make them in individual dishes and serve with green (string) beans and crusty roll and butter, but made a larger dish this evening as he who must obey said he was hungry and could eat a horse!!

So here it is



350g/12ozs Potatoes, peeled and cut into equal chunks

350g/12ozs Sweet Potatoes,peeled and cut into equal chunks

4 tablespoons Milk plus 600ml (1 pint)

65g/2.½ oz Butter

1lb of Fish for Fish Pie, (I have used Cod on it’s own for this dish before, but really nice with a mix of any firm white fish, Salmon and Smoked Haddock). That is tonight’s meal.

50g/2oz Plain Flour

4-5 tablespoons chopped parsley

Salt and ground black pepper.


Preheat your oven to 400F / 200C / 180C Fan / Gas 6.

Makes 4 individual Pies.

Put all the potatoes in to a saucepan of water just enough to cover them. Bring to the boil and then simmer until tender (about 20 minutes)

When done, drain, return to a low heat to dry out any moisture, Mash with the 4 tablespoons of milk and ½ oz/15g butter.

Meanwhile, put the fish into a pan with the 600ml/1 pint milk. Bring just to boiling point then take off the heat and put a lid on top. Wait for 5 minutes then drain the fish but reserving the milk, clean the pan out.

Melt 25g/or 2 tablespoons of butter in the pan and add the leeks. Cover and simmer for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Divide the fish and leeks equally between 4 individual dishes (mine are 250ml/8fl.oz ovenproof dishes).

Melt 25g/or 2 tablespoons of butter into the pan, add the flour and cook over a medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring until combined.. Add the warm milk that you put aside, whisk to make a sauce.  Cook for 2 minutes, then add the parsley and season to taste.

Spoon the sauce over the fish in the individual dishes, Spoon the Mash over the top and fluff it up into little peaks with a fork.

Place one or two of the dishes on a baking tray and pop them into your preheated oven and bake for 35=40 minutes until they are bubbling hot.


(to freeze any, cover the uncooked dishes with foil, seal and label. They will keep for up to 2 months.


Live Life every day as though it is your last.

Here is another one that I would really like to try; now that spring is officially on here in Montana, I can see some fresh-caught fish going into this!
