10-15 minutes
30-40 minutes

I’m still persevering with fish. My little one refuses to eat any kind other than smoked salmon, but I will not give up! And what better way to tempt him than a hearty fish pie this weekend.


  • 1kg sweet potatoes
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 100ml stock
  • 700g white fish such as cod (or get fish pie mix from the fishmongers)
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen sweetcorn
  • 2 big handfuls of spinach
  • Handful of cheddar cheese
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes
  • Knob of butter
  • Salt & pepper


  • Knife
  • Potato peeler
  • Pie dish
  • Grater




1 Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6
2 Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into 2cm chunks and boil for around 10 minutes until soft
3 Gently heat the cream cheese and stock, stirring regularly
4 Add the fish, peas, sweetcorn and spinach and stir thoroughly
5 Transfer the mixture into a pie dish, add a knob of butter and pinch of salt to your sweet potato and mash until smooth
6 Cover your fish mixture with the sweet potato mash and sprinkle with grated cheese
7 Cut your cherry tomatoes in half and pop them on top, you can make a face or a love heart if you’re feeling creative!
8 Pop it in the oven for 30-40minutes until golden. If the tomatoes start to burn pop some foil over the top for the remaining cooking time

Fun fact! Sweet potatoes are a good source of fibre when eaten with the skin on.Sweet potatoes offer other nutrients such as potassium, iron and vitamin B-6
