Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/356°F . Cook the potato in boiling, salted water for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain and return to the pan over the low heat to dry out for about a minute or so, stirring few times. Mix and mash with the ready-made or your homemade sweet potato mash, warm milk and 30g of melted butter. Add freshly grated nutmeg and salt & pepper and taste for seasoning and put aside.
  2. In a separate pan add oil and melt butter on a low heat. Add salt and red pepper flakes, flour, spring onions, thyme and oregano and stir and cook it for couple of minutes until softened.
  3. Add all the veggies and chicken stock and stir. Bring the mixture just to the boil on a medium heat. now gradually add the milk while stirring continuously to avoid the lumps. Add Dijon mustard, lemon zest and half of the cheese at this stage.
  4. Cut the fish into bite-sized pieces or use the ready-made pie mix and add it to the sauce. Now is the time to add a splash of cream, mix well but gently and turn the heat off..  Let the mixture cool down a bit.   
  5. Oil an oven proof dish, big enough to take the pie. Pour in the veggies and fish sauce, add grated nutmeg, pepper, parsley and topped it with the mash evenly. finally sprinkle the remaining cheese on top (see video) and bake it for 30-35minutes or until golden and bubbling.
  6. Serve it hot with salad or your choice of greens!
