    How to make Fish Pie 
    1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas 6.
    2. Boil the potatoes, drain and mash with the butter, milk and Parmesan and season to taste.
    3. To make the sauce, melt the butter and sauté the shallot for 5-6 mins until soft.
    4. Add the white wine vinegar and boil for 2-3 mins until the liquid has evaporated.
    5. Stir in the flour to make a roux. Gradually, stir in the fish stock and then cook over a medium heat, stirring continuously.
    6. Bring to the boil  then cook stirring until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the cream and the chopped dill or chives. Season well as the fish is unseasoned.
    7. Divide all the fish and peas among four or six mini ramekins ( depending on the size) and pour over the sauce. Brush the potato topping with a little beaten egg. Bake for 25 minutes.
