    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas mark 7.
    2. Boil potatoes in a saucepan till well done. Drain and mash until smooth. Mix in the yoghurt and season well with salt and black pepper.
    3. Remove the skin and bones from the fish and cut into bite size pieces. Place in the bottom of an ovenproof baking dish along with the prawns.
    4. Place the leeks and the fish stock in a medium saucepan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over and mix well. Cook for a further minute, then add the mustard and beat well. Gradually add the skimmed milk, stirring continuously to prevent any lumps from forming. Bring to the boil, allowing the sauce to thicken. Pour sauce over the fish in the baking dish. Allow to cool for 20 minutes, then cover with the mash, either using a fork or piping using a piping bag with a large star shaped nozzle.
    5. Top with cheese and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until golden. Just before serving, sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve with minted peas and other vegetables.

    Great recipe, although I made it with smoked haddock, cod , salmon and king prawns. I did not use as much milk and put fresh prawns in as opposed to cooked ones. Will definitely make this again, thanks.  -  24 Oct 2011


    Used different ingredients. I liked this a lot, and it was very tasty and easy to make. I did add some peas and a bit of sweetcorn into the white sauce after it was prepared though. I also used sour creme instead of yoghurt in the mash as it was the only thing I had handy but I dont think that would make much of a difference. Thanks for sharing this.  -  20 Sep 2009
