Comforting Fish Pie

A classic wholesome dish, full of flavour and warming on the inside too!

The perfect comfort dinner which is easy to make your own! Add your favourite fish and any veg you like  


  • 1kg potatoes, sliced
  • 100g butter 
  • 100g creme fraiche 
  • 500ml milk + 3 tbsp 
  • 250g haddock 
  • 2 salmon fillets 
  • 150g prawns 
  • 1 onion, largely sliced 
  • 1 bay leaf 
  • 1 tbsp parsley 
  • 2 leeks, sliced 
  • 200g frozen mixed veg 
  • 3 tbsp plain flour 
  • Salt and Pepper 


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees centigrade 
  2. Boil the potatoes until tender then drain and mash them with half the butter, crème fraîche and 3tbsp milk. Season to taste and set aside 
  3. Heat the milk in a large pan, then add the haddock and salmon. Add the onion and bay leaf to the pan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for around 5 minutes 
  4. Heat the remaining butter in a small frying pan and gently fry the leeks for 5 minutes, until softened but not browned 
  5. Remove the fish from the pan, and set aside to cool slightly. Keep the milk in the pan
  6. Add the flour to the leeks and stir well. Fry for around 1 minute stirring frequently then gradually add the milk from the fish and stir. Repeat with all the milk until thickened Add all the milk in this way, and heat. Season to taste 
  7. Break the fish into chunks, being careful to feel for any bones and remove any skin, then fold into the sauce. Add the  prawns and frozen veg and stir 
  8. Place an ovenproof pie dish onto a baking tray (this will catch any of the mix that bubbles over when cooking). Spoon the fish mixture into the bottom of the dish then sprinkle over the parsley 
  9. Use a fork to spread the mash potato over the pie and create a rough texture on top. Place in the oven for 25–30 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbling.
