Suffolk Fish Pie
2 lbs Cod or haddock fillets
1 pint Milk
Salt and black pepper
3 Hard-boiled eggs, shelled
2 ozs Butter
2 ozs Flour
2 tbsp Chopped parsley
1 tsp Chopped capers
1 lbs Mashed potatoes

Pre-heat the oven to 190C: 375F: Gas 5
Cook the fish and milk in a large saucepan, season to taste.
Reserve the milk and flake the fish into a buttered and deep (2 to 21/2 pint) pie dish.
Slice the hard boiled eggs (as an alternative you could use sliced tomato) and lay on top of the fish.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, stir in the flour and then slowly add the reserved milk, stir continuously to prevent lumps.
When the sauce has thickened, add the parsley and capers to the sauce and season to taste.
Pour the sauce over the fish and eggs.
Cover this with mashed potato, lightly rough up the surface with a fork.
Cook for 30 minutes or until the potato is lightly browned.
