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



    Like garlic and onion, leeks are a member of the allium family, but have their own distinct…

  • handful of parsley, chopped

  • 142ml carton double cream
  • 2 medium baking potatoes, 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 today. My biggest problem is a small microwave. I par-boiled the prepared potatoes in the microwave in a little water, allowed them to cool then covered the fish before microwaving then going under the grill and served with a side dish of carrots, peas and broccoli

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
