Delicious and simple. I used skimmed milk and poured frozen peas in for a minute before it went in the oven. Wasn't sure whether to use plain flour but it worked for me - not sure if that's obvious?!

Made this last night with Cream instead of Milk in the white sauce and used Smoked Haddock Loin instead of Trout. Never really made anything like this before so was a little worried it was going to turn out a shambles. How wrong I was. This was amazing. This recipe is going in my permanent collection.

I LOVE fish but can't abide dill. Any suggestions for other herbs that work well with fish?

We loved this. I used semi-skimmed milk and a tablespoon of low fat cream cheese in the sauce, and parsley instead ofdill.

I don't like white fish but the family do - this is now a regular dish and we all especially like it with a mix of white fish, smoked salmon trimmings and prawns. The horseradish gives a lovely flavour.

We enjoyed this, I halved the recipe, but added peas and sweetcorn to it and just served in one dish. I often see smoked trout fillets reduced in the supermarket so buy them to stick in the freezer so will be repeating this recipe!

A mix of 2 strong tastes. They don't go together very well . I'm not fond on lemon zest.

This was very easy to make and tasted delightful. The dill sauce was light and delicate. A very good fish pie and it looked much nicer than the picture on the website!
