Method

 
Cook the sweet potatoes in a large pot of salted boiling water.

In a large pan, heat the olive oil and fry the onion for 2-3 minutes until translucent. Add the leeks, thyme and garlic and fry for a further 3-4 minutes.

Add the stock, lemon juice and fish and simmer for about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, ‘flake’ the fish with a fork, pour the mixture into an ovenproof dish, stir through the sweetcorn, and check for seasoning.

Mash  potatoes, adding a little butter and cheese if you like, and spoon over the fish mixture. Just before you are ready to eat, place the fish pie into the oven and grill for 3-5 minutes until the potato topping is golden brown.

Serve with minted peas:
Stir 1Tbs chopped fresh mint through 1 Cup cooked and drained peas, add a drizzle of lemon juice and a dollop of mascarpone or creme fraiche.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
