This was really tasty! My toddler was a bit dubious at first but actually really enjoyed it! I didn't have any onion chutney but had branston pickle so just put a spot of that on before the cheesy topping!

We loved this. I didn't have onion chutney but I think just some onions on top (soften them first) works too. The cheesy mustard mix was very tasty. The whole dinner super easy and little washing up. Could just serve with chips and peas.

Lovely meal. I had no trouble with the topping sliding off. I love the combination of cheese & mustard with the onions underneath. Great, and loved by all the family.

Apologies was meant to give this a 5 star rating not a 1!

Really easy to do, hardly any washing up and tasted great too. Definitely a good midweek meal. Will definitely be doing this one again.

The combination of cheese, mustard and fish is not a good one. The onion chutney slid off the fish so that flavour was lost as it mixed with the potatoes. Won't be making this again, although I will use the potato recipe with other fish or meat.
