Salmon, Prawn and Leek Hotpot


750 g
Maris Piper potatoes (Peeled)
60 g
leek (Finely sliced)
bay leaf
30 g
500 g
Salmon Fillet (Skinned, cut into approx 3cm chunks)
200 g
Tiger Prawns (Raw/Defrost Frozen also fine)
white wine (!Millilitre )
milk (!Millilitre )
2 T
parsley (Chopped, or Dill)
2 T
capers (Optional)


1. Cut the potatoes into even sized chunks and place in a steamer set above a pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid and steam for about 15 minutes until they are just tender, but not too soft. Once cooked, leave to cool slightly.
2. Meanwhile, melt 40g of the butter in a large saucepan and gently sauté the leek with the bay leaf until the leek has softened but not coloured. Stir in the flour for about 30 seconds before gradually adding the wine, stirring to prevent any floury lumps, before doing the same with the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook for a few minutes until you have a thick sauce.
3. Stir in the salmon and prawns and return to the simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes, until the prawns are pink and the salmon is cooked, before adding the parsley or dill, eggs and capers, (if using) then season with salt and pepper.
4. Preheat the oven to 200C/180 fan ovens/gas 6.
5. Thinly slice the potatoes and lay half on the bottom of an ovenproof dish such as a casserole or deep pie dish. Spoon in the fish filling, removing the bay leaf, then lay the rest of the potatoes on top.
6. Melt the remaining butter and brush over the top of the potatoes. Place in the oven and cook for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden.
