Fish Pie cooking guidances

Step 1 Hard-boil the eggs, cool and peel. Cut each egg in half, lengthways..
Step 2 Simultaneously poach the fish in a large, shallow pan. I usually just bring to the boil and after 1 minute turn off the heat and leave on our electric hob to cool for 5 minutes. A gas hob might require a bit longer simmering..
Step 3 Drain the fish and lay into a casserole dish, removing any skins and bones as you do so. Try to mix the varieties up a bit so that each portion will have some of everything..
Step 4 Wipe the prawns on some kitchen paper and add to the casserole, plus the optional capers if desired..
Step 5 Add the cheese sauce and gently but thoroughly mix..
Step 6 Gently push the halved, hard-boiled eggs yolk-down into the mixture, spaced so that each portion contains a half-egg..
Step 7 Boil the potatoes and mash them with a generous amount of butter and a little milk. The mash needs to be firmish, definitely not sloppy, but capable of spreading..
Step 8 Using a dessert spoon or similar, gently top the casserole mixture with the mashed potato and spread the mash out with the back of the spoon to ensure a thorough and even coverage..
Step 9 Draw the tines of a dinner fork “backwards” to create a light ridging effect. This step will help to get some crispy highlights in the end-product but can be omitted..
Step 10 Add the garnish of sliced tomatoes if wished. Indeed, add any garnish that you’d like!.
Step 11 Place the casserole on the middle shelf of the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes at Gas Mark 5 or the equivalent on an electric oven – my Neff Circotherm setting is 160C..
Step 12 Serve piping hot with vegetables of your choice. Frozen peas are a quick and easy choice. I like broccoli and carrots with this dish..
