Preparing the pastry

Preparing the filling

  • Put oil into a fry pan and cook the fish on the stove for about 10 minutes. Take from the pan and chop it roughly with a knife and set aside.
  • Add more oil to the same pan and sauté the leek, celery, choko, beans & saffron for 3-4 minutes
  • Add back the fish and cook a further 2 minutes
  • Salt to taste and then fold through the soy crème yoghurt and set aside to cool a little

Putting it together

  • Place the fish filling in the pre-cooked pastry case and flatten the top
  • Spoon the mashed potato over the top, sealing the edges with the potato
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes to slightly brown the potato
