Grease a deep baking dish for the pie or four smaller ones for individual servings and pre-heat the oven to 190°C.

Heat the stove on medium and in a medium-sized saucepan, melt the 1 tablespoon of butter and olive oil together.

Fry the onions till translucent.

Add the garlic and bay leaves and fry for a few seconds. Don’t brown the garlic.

Remove onion/garlic mixture and set aside.

Add the 30 ml of flour to the pan and cook for 10 seconds, stirring.

Add the butter. Stir. Cook the flour and butter for a few minutes, turning the heat down.

Add the milk, gradually, stirring with a wooden spoon so that lumps do not form.

Use a whisk if necessary.

Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Add the angel fish and cook for 3 – 4 minutes until the fish is done, but not dry.

Add the onion/garlic mixture and mix through. Remove the bay leaves if you wish.

Mix the mashed potato and sweet potato together, adjusting seasoning and adding a bit of butter if desired.

Arrange the asparagus on top.

Bake for 15 minutes. Serve warm.
