How to make it

  • Poach the fish very gently in half the milk(a little more if neccesary)with bayleaf and allow to cool in the milk.Skin the fish and arrange in the base of a casserole dish or baking dish(approx 3pt capacity) with chopped hard boiled eggs
  • Make a rue by melting the butter in a heavy based saucepan and stirring in the flour, gradually add the "fish liquid"( remove the bayleaf at this point)stirring all the time then add the remaing milk and cream BIT BY BIT,stirring well after each addition (if the desired thickness is reached before all the liquid is used,make sure the cream is included in the sauce)simmer for a couple of minutes being careful not to allow the sauce to "split". Stir in theGouda / Gruyere and lastly stir in the lemon juice if using
  • Pour over the fish/eggs
  • Next top with the mashed potatoes and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake on a high shelf in the oven at 400* F (200*C) for about 30 minutes or until the pie is heated through and the top n icely browned
