Once cooked remove the fish from the milk using a slotted spoon, keep the milk on a low heat and drain the fish in a colander. Once drained spread the fish evenly over the base of a flat dish. Preheat Oven to 400°F/200°C/Gas Mark 6.

Add the parsley to the milk ready to make a parsley sauce.

04 add parsley

In a separate pan melt 2tbsp butter/margarine gently then add the plain flour, mix well making a blonde roux, add bit by bit to the milk stirring continuously to make a thick smooth sauce (you may not need to use it all, it keeps in the freezer for next time in some cling film)

Once the sauce is a desired thickness (make sure it’s slightly thicker than desired as it will thin whilst cooking in the pie), pour the sauce over the fish and peas in the dish until covered evenly, leave to cool slightly. so the sauce thickens.

Once the potatoes are ready, drain and mash with the remaining butter, and using a pallet knife or spatula, spread the mash over the top of the fish pie mixture.
