Makes one large pie to serve four people

  • 600g smoked haddock
  • 200g of shrimp
  • 200g cockle meat
  • 2 leeks
  • 1 white onion
  • 250g of butter
  • 250g of flour
  • 1 litre of double cream
  • 1 litre of single cream
  • Bunch of tarragon
  • Basic potato mashed topping

Melt butter and flour together until thick. Add chopped leeks and onion to mix.

Slowly add milk to pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to form a white or béchamel sauce.

Slowly add creams (double first) to thicken the mixture and stir slowly with a wooden spoon. When the consistency is thick and smooth, add the smoked haddock, shrimp, cockle meat – remove from heat so as not to break up the fish.

Add tarragon. Pour mixture into serving dish and top with mash.
