Ultimate Cornish Fish Pie
Peel and boil the potatoes, drain and allow to dry a little, mash, season and add butter to taste.
Rinse and dry the fish mix
Check for bones and place into a baking tray (oven to table is ideal). You can any mix of white fish, smoked fish, salmon and prawns.
The ideal sauce for fish pie is a white wine sauce enriched with cream, or a bechamel. For this recipe 500ml of sauce will be sufficient.
Make a white sauce (according to the makers instructions if you are using a packet), flavour with some fish stock. It is important to make the sauce thicker than normal as it will be thinned by the cooked fish juices. Add a little slaked cornflour to thicken if necessary.
Pour the sauce over the raw fish and gently mix together; season to taste.
Scatter some frozen peas on top of the mixture.
Cover with the mashed potato, top with grated cheese and bake in a hot oven for 45 minutes.
