Ingredients

For the mashed potato

Method

For the pie

  1. Put the milk and water into the TM bowl and insert the internal steaming basket.
  2. Add the fish to the basket, with the lemon juice (if using) squeezed over it.
  3. Cook 10 minutes / 100° / Speed 4.
  4. Tip out the fish liquid and reserve.
  5. Set the fish aside.
  6. Weigh 400g of the fish liquid back into the TM bowl, using extra milk if necessary to make it up to 400g.
  7. Add the butter or oil, flour, bouillon powder and the curry powder.
  8. Cook 4 minutes / 100° / Speed 4.
  9. Taste and season if necessary.
  10. Return the fish to the sauce and add the mushrooms.
  11. Mix 10 seconds / Speed Spoon / Reverse Blade.
  12. Transfer into an ovenproof dish, cover and reserve.

For the mashed potato

  1. Having washed the TM bowl (no need to wash the basket at this stage), weigh in the water, add the salt and insert the basket.
  2. Weigh the potatoes into the basket.
  3. Cook 15 minutes / Temp. Varoma / Speed Spoon.
  4. Check the potatoes have been properly cooked and is necessary, cook a few minutes more until tender.
  5. Drain the potatoes and reserve the steaming water.
  6. Insert the Butterfly Whisk and add the butter, steaming water, the stock powder, milk or cream, nutmeg and seasoning with the potatoes.
  7. Mix 2-10 seconds / Speed 4 depending on the desired consistency - I find that 4 seconds is about right.
  8. Spread the potato over the fish mixture and make a ridge pattern with a fork.
  9. Dot some small pieces of butter over the potato.
  10. Bake at 220° C (425° F - gas 7), [fan oven 200° C & reduce cooking time by 10 mins per hour] for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
  11. AGA ovens: Bake 30 minutes on rack set on lowest set of runners in the Roasting Oven.

Serving suggestions

Serve with steamed peas or broccoli.

Variations

You can also use prawns or scallops in place of the some of the fish. You can cover with puff pastry instead of potato if preferred. Add some garlic and/or onion - this will need be sautéed in the TM bowl before steaming the fish.

Chef's notes

Usually I find that the potatoes need cooking for 20 minutes. It is best to allow the fish mixture to cool (covered), before adding the potato or it will sink too much into the fish sauce.
