I really don't like fish, but I'm in a serious minority in my family. Fish Pie is quite quick and easy to make, and doesn't really need any taste-tests along the way

I think the idea of adding peas to the mash was originally Jamie Oliver's, but I may be misattributing

  15. Remove the milk pan from the heat
  16. Stir the flour into the carrots and onion
  17. Gradually add the milk, stirring as you do so to avoid lumps
