Mitch Tonks' Fish PieIngredients for Mitch Tonks' Fish Pie

1 leek, sliced
100g Butter
10 mussels, in their shells
100g salmon fillet, skinned
100g haddock fillet, skinned
100g cod fillet, skinned
100g smoked haddock
4 Scallops
300ml full cream milk
4 tbsp plain flour
handful roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
100g frozen cooked prawns, defrosted
400g mashed potato
handful grated Parmesan

How to make Mitch Tonks' Fish Pie

  • Gently fry the leek in half the butter, stirring occasionally, until softened. Set aside.
  • Steam the mussels in a pan with a splash of water, until the shells open. Discard any that do not open. Remove the mussel flesh from their shells. Set aside.
  • Cut the salmon, haddock, cod and smoked haddock into 3cm chunks and put into a large pan along with the scallops. Cover with milk, bring to a simmer and poach for 6-7 minutes. Drain the fish, reserving the milk for the sauce.
  • Heat the remaining butter in a clean pan and stir in the flour. Cook, stirring for a couple of minutes, then start to add the warm poaching milk. Season with salt and pepper and cook until thickened to the consistency of double cream. Remove from the heat and stir in the leeks and most of the parsley.
  • Put the chunks of fish in a grill-proof pie dish and add the steamed mussels and prawns. Pour over the warm sauce.
  • Spread the prepared mashed potato on top of the pie and grate over the parmesan. Sprinkle with the remaining chopped parsley.
  • Put the pie under a hot grill until the top is crisp and golden and the cheese has melted.
