  • 400g smoked haddock (undyed is better, but not essential), skinned and chopped into chunks
  • 1 trimmed leek, finely sliced

  • handful of parsley, chopped

  • 142ml carton double cream
  • 2 medium baking potato, about 200g/7oz each, skin on, sliced as thinly as possible


  1. Firstly assemble the dish. Scatter the haddock, leek and parsley over the bottom of a shallow microwavable dish and mix together with your fingers or a spoon. Drizzle over half the cream and 5 tablespoons of water. Lay the potato slices over the fish and leeks and drizzle over the remaining cream. Season the potatoes with a little salt and plenty of black pepper.

  2. Put the grill on high. Cover the dish with cling film and pierce it a few times. Microwave the pie on the highest setting for 8-10 minutes until everything’s bubbling away and the potatoes are tender when poked with a knife. Whip off the cling film and put the dish under the grill until the potatoes are golden. Leave to rest for a minute, then serve straight from the dish.

Made this last night - I used soy cream, new potatoes instead of baking and spring onions instead of leeks, cooked in the microwave for 13 minutes to fully cook the potatoes then finished under the grill. Served with some green beans. We really enjoyed it! Simple midweek dinner that is super quick, I'm sure it will easily become a staple to our diet!

A lovely, easy fish pie. Having read the comments about the potatoes not being cooked, I blasted them in the microwave for 10 mins and then added them half way through cooking the fish; seemed to work fine! Mixed the cream with lemon juice and 3 tsp of horseradish for an extra kick. Recommended.

This is very easy and very tasty. I used creme fraiche rather than cream, but I mixed it with a bit of milk to loosen it. I did finish in the oven for 20 minutes and put cheese on top.

I have made this recipe several times now, and really love it.
im loving the idea of the cheese on top I have not tried that yet but I will do. Its so easy to make and a quick meal for mid week.
Perhaps a little runny but I always serve mine with either garlic bread or Ciabatta warm out the oven and is just so delicious!!

It was too runny for me as well.

I agree with the other comments about this being runny, but it was still a quick and delicious meal. I also added peas to mine and topped with cheese before grilling. I will definitely be making this again.

Slaved for well over the alotted 10 mins to make sure the potatoes were thin enough but they were still completely raw after 15 mins in the microwave and 10 mins under the grill! Disaster...... I think the moral of the story is 'don't try and use a low fat alternative to cream!'

AMAZING - cooked for housemates who were unconvinced by microwaving and they LOVED it....I also added cheese during grilling and I will be cooking this again

This came out really well - i was quite surprised that the microwave worked so well, and the grill just finished it off perfectly. I used a mix of smoked and plain haddock so the taste wasn't too strong and all liked it

So easy and yummy, a firm favourite in our household!! Haven't had any problems with the potatoes being runny only thing is I always forget is the recipe is only for 2!!!! I also add cheese (and sometimes breadcrumbs) and grill at the end.

Great recipe, I added peas and prawns. Really simple and a great way to get fish inside children! Definitely recommend!

Love this recipe! I sprinkled cheese on top half way through grilling... yum.

Very tasty and very easy. I grated some cheddar on the top and baked it in my fan oven at 170 degrees for about half an hour instead of doing it in the microwave. I will definitely be making this again.

I varied it slightly by starting it in the microwave and finished it in the oven. Also sprinkled some grated cheddar on the top. I agreed with Topchef about it being too runny so covered the top with some greaseproof paper allowing the cream to reduce. Delicious and really easy.

Haddock tasted lovely with the potatoes but was too runny for my liking with all that cream.
