Fish Pie ~ with a difference!
Whilst flicking through my newest cookery book, Jo Pratts 'In the Mood for Food', I came across this fish pie - with a grated sweet potato and cheese topping. This was a revelation, it was gorgeous, creamy, smokey and rich (cash wise too as it contains Cod, Tiger Prawns and Smoked Salmon), perfect food for a very cold day.
