Serves 6 | Prep 25 mins | Cook 40-45 mins | Calories 469 (per serving)


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 2 smoked haddock fillets
  • 2 cod fillets
  • 6-8 raw king prawns
  • 500ml (18fl oz) dairy-
    free milk
  • 50g (1¾oz) dairy-free spread
  • 25g (1oz) gluten-free plain flour
  • 3-4 potatoes
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • dairy-free cheese, grated (enough to cover the top)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Peel, chop, then boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain, then mash with a little milk, dairy-free spread and mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 160°C/Gas Mark 2½.
  2. Place the fish fillets in a large ovenproof dish. Pour over the milk and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the heat up to 180°C/Gas Mark 4.
  3. Use a slotted spoon to remove the fish from the milk, then pour the milk into a jug.
  4. Create a white sauce by adding flour, dairy-free spread and the milk in the jug to a saucepan. On a low/medium heat, keep stirring your mixture until it thickens.
  5. Return the fish to the ovenproof dish, break it up into bite-sized chunks and add the prawns. Drizzle over the white sauce until covered.  You may not need all the sauce. Spoon over the mashed potato, making sure it covers all the edges. Sprinkle with dairy-free cheese and pepper.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, until the top starts to turn golden.
