      • 4 potatoes (3 large or 4 medium)

      1. Preheat oven to 190°C.

      6. Pour in the milk and flour mixture to the leek. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously the whole time.
      7. Add in the parsley, turn down the heat and cook for a further 2-3 minutes or until mixture is thickened.
      8. Remove from heat.
      9. On a separate plate, flake the fish, removing the skin and any bones.
      10. Stir the fish and peas through the sauce and pour mixture into a small oven proof dish. Top with a thin layer of the mashed potato. Sprinkle with the cheese (optional).
      11. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
