• 250g Potato, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 250g Swede, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 300g Cod fillet
  • 25g Unsalted butter
  • 600ml Milk
  • 1tbsp Plain flour
  • 75g Cheese, grated
  • 50g Broccoli florets


  • STEP 1

    Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas mark 5.

  • STEP 2

    Boil the potatoes and swede for about 15 minutes, until soft. Mash with a dash of milk.

  • STEP 3

    Steam the fish over a pan of boiling water for 4-5 minutes, or microwave it on medium power in a covered dish for 4 minutes.

  • STEP 4

    Lightly steam the broccoli until just tender, drain and cut into small florets.

  • STEP 5

    To make the cheese sauce, melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour, stir to a paste. Keep stirring as you gradually add the remaining milk. Cook until the sauce begins to thicken, then add two-thirds of the cheese.

  • STEP 6

    Flake the cooked fish and distribute evenly into 6 small, lightly greased ramekins. Spoon the broccoli on top and pour over the cheese sauce.

  • STEP 7

    Spoon the potato and swede mash over the mixture in each ramekin until covered. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

  • STEP 8

    Pop into the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the topping crisps up.

Why not add finely chopped onion for extra flavour?
