Winner, winner, crayfish dinner


You can't do anything wrong if crayfish are involved as far as I'm concerned. Lovely fish pie this.

Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 190° C (375° F - Gas 5)


  1. Add the very finely chopped onions, milk to a pan and bring in to a simmer

  4. Simmer until it thickens and remove from the heat and stir in the parsley
  5. Chop the hoki into strips
  6. Pour the cheesy sauce into an oven dish and distribute the hoki strips.
  7. Add the peeled prawns and crawfish and arrange the slices of pickled egg on top if using.
  8. With a palette knife, spread the squash mash over the top of the fish mixture, fluff up with a fork
  9. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes
