Fish Pie

Finally after weeks of craving and with enough time for this dish in several steps

Would serve 6 normal people with some peas and vegetables , but 4 people like me who if they really tried could eat the whole dish over the course of an evening

750g of potatoes

Milk half a pint

  1. My husband ate one of these when we honeymooned in England. He “oohed” and “aahed” do much over it, yet I’ve never made one. With our 13 anniversary coming up, maybe it’s time to try? ;)

    Sorry I am very bad at putting in how many people dishes serve, but how have added a bit now . I reckon six with some vegetables the dish in a oval one about 30cm long and and 20 cm wide but sloping sides like a small shoebox . Hope that helps .
