  8. Drain the cooked fish, reserving 10 fl oz of the milk.
  9. Allow the fish to cool slightly until cool enough to handle, then flake it, discarding the skin and bones.
  10. Melt the 1 oz butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute.
  11. Gradually stir in the reserved milk and bring to the boil, stirring, then simmer for 2 minutes.
  12. Remove from the heat.
  13. Stir in the flaked fish, parsley and prawns and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  14. Spoon the mixture into an ovenproof dish and cover with the potato mixture, marking it in a attractive pattern with a fork.

  16. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown, serve hot.

Substitute unsmoked fish, such as cod or haddock, for the smoked fish or, for special occasions, salmon or monkfish. Replace the Cheddar cheese with another brand cheese, if preferred, or omit it altogether.
