Tips for Smoked Fish Pie

You can get deboned and smoked fish from your local butcher so you don’t have to. When thickening the sauce, it is much like preparing a white sauce, also called Bechamel, a creamy French sauce made with flour, butter and milk. However, you can use the poaching liquid instead of the milk which will have a lot of flavor. When you’ve added the mashed potatoes, score it with a fork all over so you have crispy potato chunks for texture.
