Parmesan cheese, finely grated Method: In a large pan of cold, salted water, gently bring the potatoes to the boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 15–20min until tender. Drain and set aside to steam dry for 5min. Mash or press through a ricer while warm. Set aside. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan) mark 4. In a large non-stick frying pan, melt 50g (2oz) butter. Add flour and stir to make a thick paste. Cook over medium heat for 3min, stirring. Remove from heat, then gradually add wine, stirring until smooth. Return to heat and add stock, bring up to boil and simmer for about 5min, stirring, until sauce is the consistency of Greek yogurt. Add cream, anchovy essence, parsley and lemon juice. Season and set aside. In a large pan, heat remaining butter and milk with plenty of seasoning. Remove from heat, beat in a third of the mashed potatoes to a loose consistency, then the remaining potatoes, until thick and fluffy. Stir the raw fish chunks into the sauce. Spoon into a 2 litre (3½pint) baking dish. Top with the potato, peaking the top with the back of a fork, then sprinkle with the cheese. Bake for 30min until golden and bubbling. Serve with peas, if you like.
