Fish Pie with Sweet Potato Topping


Ingredients (For Two)

300g mixed chopped fish like haddock, cod, and salmon
1 tsp mixed herbs, or 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
a knob of butter
1 tbsp flour
enough milk to make the white sauce
a little grated cheese
salt and pepper
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped

1. Preheat the over to 200 degrees. Boil the sweet potato in a saucepan.

2. Then begin to make the white sauce for the fish. Melt the butter in a saucepan then add the flour and slowly start pouring in the milk to make a roux. Keep adding the milk until it is at a thickish consistency. Add the herbs and then the mixed fish. Cook for a minute or so, then take the pan off the heat.

3. Pour the saucy fish into a suitable baking pot ready for the sweet potato which should be ready to mash. Mash the sweet potato with a few knobs or butter, a dash of milk, and season well to taste. Once this is done, cover the fish with the sweet potato mash and grate some cheese on top.

4. Place the pie in the over for roughly 20 minutes, until it is sizzling and bubbling. Serve with some green vegetables.
