This filling recipe is best enjoyed on a cold day. Great served with peas or broccoli and some crusty bread. This dish can also be prepared with cod fillets, and is delicious prepared with a mixture of both cod and haddock. If available, use Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes.

  • Bring potatoes to a boil in a large pot of salted water. Cook until tender enough to insert a fork, but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and move to a large bowl.

  • Meanwhile, place the haddock in a large saucepan over medium heat. Pour the milk over the fish and then sprinkle with the green onions. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • Transfer haddock to a plate. Remove the bones and skin and discard. Pour the milk mixture over the diced potatoes; beat until smooth. Blend in the creme fraiche. Season with salt and pepper. Gently fold the haddock into the mixture along with half of the shredded Emmentaler cheese. Spoon the mixture into a large, shallow baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining Emmentaler cheese over the top

  • Bake in preheated oven until the surface has turned golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Easy to make and satisfying meal which is healthier than the usual fish pie. I made half the recipe using smoked haddock normal onions and mature cheddar cheese. Also added some defrosted frozen peas and spinach and mushrooms with the milk fish and onions to make it a full meal to eat at work. Didn't add the creme freche/fromage frais as it would have been too wet(I didn't cook it in the oven): I've frozen the portions and will be reheating it at work in the microwave. Simple and yummy.

This was alright. I made it for my family and no one was really fussed over it. I will make it again but I'll add salmon with the haddock for color texture and flavor also will season more. Read More

Delicious...I used red onions because I was out of green and they worked fine. Cod by itself was also a hit. Read More

I substituted cheddar cheese. I also added a can of drained peas before folding in the fish. Served with southern corn cakes this was just about perfect! Read More

This is so much like the Fish Pie my granddad used to make. The only change I made was to add a bit of garlic powder to the fish and milk. I served with crusty bread and a big green salad. YUM! Read More

Yum - comfort food at its best. I substituted some salmon fillets for half the haddock and some prawns - clearing the freezer nicely! We also popped in a handful of sweetcorn and swapped the Emmental for Cheddar as the fridge dictates. All gobbled up from youngest to eldest with extra children. Read More

Yum! Great comfort food and it's like the fish pie my English grandmother makes. I used cheddar instead of Swiss cheese. Read More

I made this recipe with cod because I had cod in the freezer already and I substituted box spud flakes instead of fresh potatoes because I am trying to get rid of the box stuff. I added a little extra milk and butter to the fish and then when the fish was done I just mixed the flakes right into the same pot. Also I grated two medium sized onions and substituted parmesan cheese instead of Emmentaler. It was pretty good but you'd have to be in a real fish mood for it. Read More
