Quick & Easy Fish Pie Recipe
This fish pie recipe is written to serve two, so just double it for four!

- 1Kg potatoes, mashed*
- Half a mug of frozen peas, top up the mug with boiling water for 2 minutes to defrost them: pour boiling water in, stir, strain and top up again. Strain the peas to use them in this recipe.

- 3 hard boiled eggs, sliced thinly
*To quickly make mash, boil a kettle and thinly slice the potatoes, put the potatoes into boiling water and continue to boil for about 12 minutes. Strain and mash.
