Place the potatoes in a pan of cold water and turn the heat to medium. Season the potatoes with salt.

Place the fish, skin side down, in the oiled oven proof dish. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Pour the milk over the fish so that it covers just over half of the fish. When the potatoes start to boil put the fish in the oven. Let the fish and the potatoes cook for 20 minutes.

While the potatoes and fish are cooking, boil the peas in water for 3 minutes, drain them and put to one side.

When the potatoes are cooked, thoroughly drain them of all water and put to one side.


 
Pick the fish from the skin picture Take the fish from the oven and and turn the oven up to 220C / 425F / Gas Mark 7. Drain off all the milk from the fish into a bowl (some of it will be used later for the mashed potatoes).

Use two forks to gently scrape the fish flesh from the skin. Discard the fish skin. Break the fish into small pieces with a fork. Spread it evenly over the base of the oven proof dish.


  
Mashed potato picture Add the butter and three tablespoons of the saved milk to the potatoes and mash them very well so that there are no lumps. This will take at least two minutes, possibly longer.

Add the cooked peas to the mashed potato and gently fold them in. Don't mash the peas, this will only result in a green coloured mash


  
The uncooked fish pie picture When the peas are spread throughout the mash, spread the mixture over the top of the fish. Make sure all the fish is covered and the top of the mashed potato is roughly level. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the potato.

Spread the grated cheese evenly over the top of the parsley.

 
The cooked fish pie Put the oven proof dish in the oven for 20 minutes turning once after 10 minutes.

The result is shown on the left. It's a meal in itself with the fish, peas and mash but additional vegetables can be added.
