Smoked Fish Pie


A staple in many homes, this is good, affordable, and filling food. You can make this dish ahead of time and heat it up before serving. Or make it all in one go.



Mashed Potatoes

  • 900 g (1 3/4 Pound) Potatoes
  • 60 g (2 oz) Butter
  • 125 ml (1/2 Cup) Milk
  • Salt

Smoked Fish Filling

  • 1 Large Onion
  • 60 g (2 oz) Butter
  • 60 g (2 oz) Flour
  • 500 ml (2 Cups) Milk
  • 450 g (1 Pound) Smoked Fish (1 can)
  • 500 ml (2 Cups) Frozen Peas
  • 150 g (5 oz) Cheddar
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Set up

  1. Peel and wash the potatoes. Cut them into small pieces.
  2. Peel and dice the onion.
  3. Grate the Cheddar.


  1. Put the potatoes in a pot of cold water. Bring to a boil. Control the heat and let simmer.
  2. Cook the onions with the 60 g of butter on medium heat until soft and translucent.
  3. Add the flour and mix well.
  4. Cook the onion and flour for a few minutes, until just before the flour starts to colour.
  5. Add the milk. Bring to a boil while stirring to avoid burning or “sticking” the bottom. This will be a fairly thick sauce.
  6. Control the heat to simmer. Cook 5 minutes while stirring.
  7. Add the smoked fish and the peas, mix well.
  8. Season with fresh ground black pepper. Salt is not required as the fish is already quite salty.
  9. By this time the potatoes should be cooked.
  10. Drain the potatoes, add the 50 g of butter, the 125 ml of milk, and mash well.
  11. Season the potatoes with a little bit of salt.
  12. Place the mashed potatoes around a deep oven-proof dish, leaving a space in the middle.
  13. Pour the fish filling in the center of the potatoes.
  14. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the dish.


  1. Pre-Heat oven at 180 C (350 F)
  2. Heat the pie until hot inside and cheese is melted.
  3. Enjoy!
