    Fish Pie with Kumara Topping

    Just had a couple of nights on board Cajun Moon.
    It was beautiful out in the Hauraki Gulf.

    Chilly at night, but we have central heating so that's not a problem
    Dale really doesn't like meat, so we have as many meatless meals, as I can stand.
    I also need to use up the canned food in the larder on the boat.

    I love the idea of Jamie Oliver's fish pie, where he grates the potato topping rather than mashed spuds. So I worked on that.

    1 kumara (sweet potato) grated
    2 tbs olive oil
    Salt and Piri Piri seasoning (you can use chili flakes)
    1 leek sliced sauted till soft in 1 tbs olive oil
    3 eggs hardboiled and large chop

    2 tbs butter
    10 gms mushrooms chopped
    Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    50 mls white wine

    2 tbs flour
    1 cup milk

    1 can tuna

    Saute leeks and set aside, place in gratin dish

    Melt butter in pan
    Add mushrooms,
    Add wine and reduce
    Add flour stir cook the flour out for a couple of minutes
    Add milk and cook till thickens

    Add eggs and tuna to sauce

    Mix grated Kumara with olive oil
    Season with sea salt and sprinkle with Piri piri seasoning
    Place over sauce
    Bake at 190C for about 30 minutes

    Serve and garnish with chopped parsley
    Very tasty.
