I made this with haddock & it was very lovely. Just add no salt if using haddock as it is salty enough. I also used my own fermented sour milk (Maas / Amasi / Yoghurt) in place of milk which also compliments the dish very well. I poached my fish in the milk & butter until just done. Cooked my potatoes in the microwave (I used baby potatoes in jackets, skins intact. No salt added! They will not soften if you add salt), I removed fish & set aside. Added my cooked softened baby potatoes to the remaining poaching liquid (milk & butter) mashed it with a hand held pastry cutter, which does an excellent job (I couldn’t find my potato masher), then added my peas blending through . Pushed the mash up around edges of the wok, followed by adding my broken up pieces of fish to bottom of wok, then covering it all up with the mash, finishing off with grated cheese topping. Put a collar of a logik oven around the wok and added the head which fits the collar and browned the top while keeping the wok on a low heat. View my pix below & the original recipe here…

The only thing missing here is the flour. If you miss it, have a spoon of it on the side😉

Baked in a 5 liter electric wok using the element head of a FlavorWave Oven together with it’s extender ring which acts as an oven.

1000 grams potato
400 grams fish
200 grams frozen peas
160 grams mature cheddar cheese
80 grams butter
1 1/4 teaspoon salt (8 grams)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (0.8 grams)
200 mls milk
1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (8 ml)
Use any sort of fish you like – cod, coaley, smoked or unsmoked haddock, trout, salmon …
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius / 350 F / Gas Mark 4. Place your fish in a dish greased lightly with olive oil. Add the milk. Peel your potatoes, put them in a saucepan and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil. When the potatoes are boiling, put the fish into the oven. After 20 minutes, take the fish out and take the potatoes off the hob. Now turn up the heat of the oven to 220 celsius / 425 F / Gas Mark 7. Pour the water off the potatoes and mash with butter, salt, pepper and the milk you used for the fish. Grate the cheese. Mix the frozen peas and the mash with a fork – do not use too much force to keep the peas intact. Separate the fish into small chunks take off the skin. Spread the mash over the fish and put the grated cheese on top. Put your dish in the oven and leave it there for 20 minutes. If your oven doesn’t heat up evenly, turn the dish after 10 minutes. Take out – Serve and Enjoy!
