Ingredients

  • Desiree or Estima potatoes 750g, scrubbed but skin left on
  • leeks 2, washed and sliced
  • butter 75g
  • plain flour 2 tbsp
  • whole milk 350ml
  • flat-leaf parsley a small bunch, chopped
  • luxury fish pie mix 1 pack, fish cut into chunks
  • raw peeled prawns 200g

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the potatoes in a pan of cold water and add 1 tsp of salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 12 minutes. Drain completely then tip back into the pan. Cover with a tea towel and the pan lid and leave to cool completely.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Cook the leeks gently in 50g of the butter, until really soft. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring for 5 minutes until it smells toasty. This will get rid of any raw flour flavour. Gradually stir in the milk until you have a thick sauce and simmer for 2 minutes. Season well. Stir in the parsley, fish and prawns, then take off the heat. Divide between 4 individual baking dishes.

  • Step 3

    Peel the potatoes then roughly grate on the coarsest side of a box grater. Melt the rest of the butter and pour over the grated potatoes. Season, then use 2 forks to toss the butter through the potatoes.

  • Step 4

    Spoon the rösti mix on top of the fish as lightly as you can (don’t pack it down or it won’t crisp). Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until crisp and golden on top.
