Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and grease a 1.8litre baking dish.

Cook the potato slices in a pan of boiling salted water for 3 mins. Drain, return to the pan and drizzle over 1tsp of oil to stop the slices sticking.

Cover the broccoli in boiling water for 30secs drain into a seive and run under the cold tap.

Put the flour in a non stick pan with the milk & 1 tbsp of oil. Bring to the boil stirring with a wooden spoon then cook for a minute or two. Take of the heat stir in the broccoli fish, parsley & lemon zest season with salt & pepper.

Tip the mixture into the dish cover with the potato slices and season with pepper. Bake for 30 mins until golden brown.

Good simple fish pie recipe which doesn’t require mashed potatoes! But I really should try out the classic way of making fish pie as I haven’t done it before. Taste wise, I think it’s lacking a bit of a kick… still contemplating whether I should add mustard or something just to bring it over the edge.

In the end, with two leftover servings, I opted for cheddar cheese over the top and baked. Wonderful!
