Fish pie with mashed potato topping, an all-time favourite classic British recipe that brings all the family together around the table. A creamy, salmon and veggies filling topped with cheesy mashed potatoes, and baked until golden, this is what comfort food looks like. It's a lot easier to make than it looks, and the leftovers can be transformed into delicious fish cakes. A good recipe for Lent or Easter too.
Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray lined with non stick parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes until thoroughly cooked. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool.
Peel and mash, then add milk, and butter. Mix well until combined and the mash is light and creamy.
Next, season with salt and ground black pepper, add the parmesan cheese, dijon mustard, chopped spring onion and stir.
In goes the salmon, which can be cut into chunks. The mixed veggies can go in as well.
Give the mixture a good stir and spoon it onto 2 smaller oven-proof dishes or a larger one.
Top it with the mashed potatoes and sprinkle over the cheddar cheese.
Bake at 180 degrees C for 20-25 minutes until golden and bubbly.
