*This recipe is gluten-free according to industry standards


  • 2 large baking potatoes, scrubbed
  • sea salt flakes
  • 250g fish pie mix, (find in the supermarket fish chiller – usually a mix of salmon, white fish and smoked fish)
  • 150ml full-fat crème fraîche
  • ½ tsp Dijon mustard
  • finely chopped to make 1 tbsp chives
  • 25g butter
  • 50g cheddar, finely grated


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Bake for 1 hour or until tender. (If you want to speed things up, you can do this first stage in the microwave – cook for approximately 10 minutes, flipping halfway.)

  • STEP 2

    If the fish pie mix pieces are large, cut into smaller bite-sized pieces. Put the fish, crème fraîche, mustard, chives and some seasoning into a pan and very gently heat through for 3-4 minutes. Cool.

  • STEP 3

    Halve the potatoes and scoop out the flesh into a bowl, leaving a 1/2 cm shell.

  • STEP 4

    Mash the scooped-out flesh, then beat in the butter and cheese, and season.

  • STEP 5

    Pile the fish pie mix into the shells, then pipe or spoon over the mash. Bake for 20 minutes until golden on top and heated through.
