  1. Preheat the oven. For the mashed potato topping, cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain and mash with 2 tbsp margarine/butter and 125ml milk. Season well with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, to poach the fish, pour 450ml milk into a saucepan and add the fish mix. Carefully heat the milk, being careful not to let it boil over, and gently simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through. Remove the fish, reserving the poaching milk, and set aside.
  3. Melt 3 tbsp margarine/butter in a frying pan and cook the leek for 5-6 minutes, or until soft. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually stir in the poaching milk. Simmer, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the fish pie mix and cooked prawns.
  4. Spoon the fish mixture into the bottom of an ovenproof dish and top with the mashed potatoes. Run the prongs of a fork over the surface of the mash to give it a rustic look. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the peas according to the packet instructions.
  6. Serve the mixed fish pie with the cooked peas.
