    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Lightly grease a 20x30cm baking dish.
    2. Place potatoes into a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash with milk and butter until smooth.
    3. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Fry onion and carrots in the oil until starting to soften. Season with salt, pepper and chilli powder. Stir in the cream and parsley and remove from the heat.
    4. Place fish in an even layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the cream and vegetable mixture over the fish, then cover with a layer of mashed potatoes. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top.
    5. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until piping hot throughout.

    sensational!  -  16 Apr 2014


    This recipe is awesome! I'm not much of a fish fan; I used cod and talapia. I also used cayenne pepper (1/4 to 1/2 t) which really spiced it up! I found out at the last minute that I didn't have any cream, so I mixed in a can of cream of celery soup after browning the onions, and it was just awesome! We will make this recipe again and again!  -  17 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This pie is excellent, I have made so many times. A friend who came for lunch loved it and then told me he didn't like fish. I sprinkle some of the cheese on before I put the potatoes on, I also don't use as much cheese as called for. Thank you soooo much for this recipe  -  17 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
