  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and tip in the celery and garlic. Cook over a high heat for 2 mins or until softened, then add in the tomatoes. Cook for another 3 mins until starting to burst. Stir in the tomato purée and fish, then pour over the stock or wine. Turn down the heat, simmer for 3 mins, then tip in the prawns and cook for a further 2 mins until the prawns are heated through and the fish flakes easily. Stir through the tarragon and spoon the mixture into a medium-sized oval pie dish.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in salted boiling water for 15 mins until softened. Drain and mash together with the remaining olive oil, 3 tbsp water and the spring onions. Spoon over the fish mixture and smooth all over to cover. Run a fork over the surface to create swirls, then cook under a hot grill for 10 mins until the topping is lightly browned.

Why can't you enable the Print Function to print the Recipe on ONE A4 Sheet? As with every other time that I've printed one of the Recipies, I get it printed over 2 or 3 sheets. This is not only wastefull but is also very annoying. It requires me to cut up the 3 sheets, staple the relevant sections together and then copy them onto a Single sheet. Only then does it become a Practical working document, which can be Filed for future use.

I am not a fan of fish pies, but this is just excellent. Even better re-heated. I add a few capers, and sometimes miss out the prawns

I didn't have any spring onions so I used normal onions and I added cheese to the top of the potato topping, also I added some paprika. It was very easy and tasty.
