  • 150g salmon, cubed into bite size pieces

For the Sauce

  • 60g plain flour
  • Poaching liquid

  • 1tbls finely chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper

Mashed Potato Topping

  • 150g Avonmore Butter
  • 150ml Avonmore Cream
  • 1kg potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh nutmeg
  • 50g Avonmore grated cheddar cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil, add in the potatoes and cook for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain well. In the same pot, melt together the Kerrygold Butter and Avonmore Cream. Season well with salt and pepper. Return the potatoes to the pot and mash well. Check seasoning. Set aside for the moment with the lid on.
  2. In a small pot, pour in the wine, water, carrot and leek. Boil with the lid on for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and spread evenly in a large baking dish or divide amongst 6 individual pie dishes. Sprinkle over the frozen peas.
  4. Pour the poaching liquid into a jug and mix with the Avonmore Double Cream.
  5. In the same pot, melt the Kerrygold Butter for the sauce. Stir in the flour and ‘cook out’ for a minute. Gradually pour in the Avonmore Double Cream/poaching liquid, whisking all the time. Allow to bubble up and thicken. Season well and stir in the dill.
  6. Spread the fish and prawns evenly. Pour over the sauce and gently mix. Give the dish a shake to settle the sauce.
  7. Spoon over the mashed potato and spread with a fork. Grate over a little fresh nutmeg and sprinkle over the cheese.
  8. Bake for 30 to 45 mins at 200°C until bubbling and hot through with a golden crust.
