Ingredients: 8 ½ fl oz fish stock 8 ½ fl oz milk + 2 tbsp for the potatoes 12 oz asstd. fish pieces  (if using frozen fish, thaw and pat dry to avoid excess water) 1 bay leaf 24 oz (1½ lb) warm, creamed, mashed potatoes 2 oz butter 1 medium sized leek, the white, washed and finely sliced 2 oz  all purpose flour 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley Salt and pepper Handful grated cheddar cheese (optional)
Enjoy the taste:
Directions: 1. Heat the oven to 355 °F 2. Pour the fish stock and milk into a large saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the fish pieces and bay leaf and poach for 5 mins. Remove the fish pieces with a slotted spoon and keep to one side. Reserve the liqueur. 3. Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan over a medium heat. Add the sliced leeks and cook for 5 minutes until the leeks are soft. 4. Whilst still hot, add the flour and stir well with a wooden spoon. Pour the fish liqueur into the pan and stir again, raise the temperature and cook for 3 minutes until the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn the heat off. Remove the bay leaf. Add the fish, chopped parsley and season with salt and pepper. Leave to one side. 5. Place the fish and sauce into an ovenproof dish, cover with a thick layer of mashed potato fluffed up with a fork or, for a more professional look, pipe from a piping bag and large nozzle. 6. Sprinkle with grated cheese if using. 7. Put the dish onto a baking sheet and cook in the center of the preheated oven for 20 - 30 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling beneath the potatoes. Serve immediately.
