A perfect comforting meal for a cold night, this fish pie is packed with flavour. Even if it's never been your thing, do give this version a try as it's such a homely, tasty dish with delicate herbs and creamy mash! I use cod but it works equally well with other fish such as salmon or trout - use your favourite. This is a two part recipe. In part one we cook the fish and potatoes. In part two we make the white sauce and construct the pie.
