- Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Prick each potato a few times with a knife (to prevent them from bursting) and bake on a baking tray for 1 hr-1 hr 30 mins or until soft when pressed. Cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the flesh into a bowl and mash it with a fork or ricer. Save the skins for another day. While the potato is still hot, mix in the cream and milk to make a smooth mash, season and set aside.
- While the potatoes are baking, make the fish pie mix. Put a large frying pan on a medium heat. Melt the butter and cook the leeks slowly for 10 mins until they are sweet and tender, then season and add the nutmeg. Stir in the mustard, then pour in the wine and reduce until there is almost no wine left. Pour in the cream and simmer for about 10 mins until reduced by half. Remove from the heat, and add the chives along with the lemon juice and zest. Taste for seasoning.
- Stir the haddock, salmon and prawns into the creamed leeks and transfer to a medium baking dish, then top with the mashed potato, smooth over to cover the fish, and scatter over the cheeses. Bake for 25-30 mins until the cheese has turned golden brown.

SEARED FISH WITH CREAMED KALE AND LEEKS
This satisfying weeknight meal involves three simple components - fish, kale and rice - and builds flavor from just one versatile element requiring a little labor: leek-infused cream. Sauté leeks, garlic and thyme in butter until softened, then simmer with heavy cream until thickened. Strain the mixture, saving the leeks to add flavor to cooked rice, polenta or pearl couscous, then combine the fragrant cream with blanched kale and a little mustard. Season the skin of your fillets early to help them develop a particularly crisp, crackly crust. If you can't find fresh char, any mild fish fillets will work well in their place.

- Prepare your fish: Pat the fish dry, then salt the skin side to help draw out moisture. Set on a plate and refrigerate, uncovered.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high. Prepare your kale: Pull the leaves off the stems and tear leaves into bite-size pieces. Wash vigorously, drain, then set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium. Add the leek, thyme and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 7 minutes.
- Stir in the cream and bring to a boil over high. Continue to cook on high until thickened, about 5 minutes. Using a fine-mesh sieve set over a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, strain the sauce, pressing to extract as much liquid as possible. (You should have about 1/2 cup sauce.) Set aside the solids and return the sauce to the saucepan. Whisk in the mustard and stock concentrate, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and set aside.
- Discard the thyme sprigs and stir the cooked leek mixture into cooked rice, if desired. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Once the sauce is done, blanch the kale in the boiling water until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a colander to drain and rinse under cold water. Once cool enough to handle, squeeze out the excess liquid. Add to the strained cream, then season with salt and pepper. Cover, and warm over low, stirring occasionally.
- Cook the fish: Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Pat the fish dry a second time, then season the skin with pepper, and the flesh with salt and pepper. Add to the hot oil, skin-side down, and cook until the skin is crispy and golden, about 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip the fish and cook until the outside starts to turn golden, but the thickest part of the fish is still slightly translucent, about 3 minutes.
- Divide the rice (if using), creamed kale and fish among plates and serve immediately.

FILLET OF SOLE WITH LEEK SAUCE
- In a microwave-safe glass casserole microwave the butter at high power (100%) for 1 minute, or until it is melted. Stir in the leeks and salt to taste and microwave the mixture, covered with the lid, at high power (100%) for 10 minutes, or until the leek is tender. Transfer the leek mixture to a saucepan and add the wine. Season the sole with salt and pepper and fold the fillets, skinned sides in, into thirds. Arrange the fillets in the casserole and microwave them, covered with lid, at high power (100%) for 3 minutes, or until they just flake. While the fish is cooking, boil the leek mixture until almost all the liquid is evaporated. Transfer the fish with a slotted spatula to heated plates and keep it warm, covered with foil. Add the fish liquid remaining in the casserole to the leek mixture and boil the mixture until the liquid is reduced by half. Add the cream and boil the mixture, stirring, until the sauce is thickened slightly. Season the sauce with the lemon juice and salt and pepper, spoon it around the fish, and garnish each serving with the parsley.
FILLET OF FISH WITH LEEK SAUCE
- Sprinkle fish on all sides with salt and pepper.
- Trim off root ends of leeks. Cut each leek crosswise in half. Put upper green portion to another use, such as soup, or discard.
- Slice white part of leek lengthwise and rinse thoroughly between the leaves. Cut into thin strips, then into very thin cubes. There should be about 3 1/2 cups.
- Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet and add shallots. Cook briefly, stirring, and add leeks. Cook, stirring, about 2 minutes and add wine and fish broth or clam juice. Cover closely and cook 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until most of the liquid evaporates. Swirl in 6 tablespoons of butter and the chives or parsley. Add salt and pepper.
- Heat remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in a large, heavy skillet and add fish fillets. Cook about 2 minutes on one side or until golden brown. Cook about 1 minute on second side. Cooking time will depend on thickness of fillets. This may have to be done in two batches.
- Spoon equal batches of the leek mixture into centers of four warmed plates. Cover each portion with one cooked fillet. Spoon 1 teaspoon of lemon juice over each fillet and serve.
