A super creamy smoked and plain fish pie topped with cramy mashed potatoes. Do not make the mash too milky or they will disappear into the sauce, but add sufficient milk to make them pliable. Be sure to seal the sauce completely or the sauce will seep through whilst cooking. The mash can be carefully spooned onto the fish mixture, apply too much pressure and the sauce seeps all over the pie. Fork the potatoes after or use a pallette knife to decorate. Can be served in individual casseroles. Can be prepared earlier in the day and left in the fridge, note it takes a few minutes longer to cook. Cooked prawns can be added to the fish just before baking.
