The easiest Fish Pie recipe with delicious cheesy mash topping. A really simple sauce, no pre-cooking the fish, just assemble for the ultimate comfort food.
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Put your potatoes, with a sprinkle of salt, in a pan of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes or until a knife slides in easily.
While the potatoes are cooking, put the cornflour into a mug and mix with a small amount of the measured milk until it forms a paste.
Put the remaining milk into a sauce pan over a medium heat. Pour in the cornflour 'slurry' and whisk the sauce until it thickens and is smooth.
Add the chives and plenty of salt and pepper.
Put the raw fish pie mix and prawns into the bottom of a large dish. Pour over the sauce.
Mash the cooked and drained potatoes in the saucepan and add the butter and salt and peppers. Spread over the top of the dish and sauce.
Sprinkle over the cheese and breadcrumbs.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the top is crispy and golden and the fish is cooked through.
Note 1 - Fish Pie Mix
In the UK these packs are sold in supermarket and are usually a mix of cubes of cod, salmon and some smoked haddock.
The same weight of similar fish in cubes is fine. Try to include some smoked fish for flavour.
