  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for about 15 mins, until tender. Meanwhile, set the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C.

  2. Put a little of the butter in a large mixing bowl with the leek. Microwave, covered, on High for 2 mins. Add the sweetcorn and peas. Then add the chunks of fish, capers, if using, and seasoning. Mix well and put mixture into an ovenproof dish.

  3. Pour the milk into the bowl, whisk in the flour and add the rest of the butter. Microwave on High for about 4 mins, whisking every so often to thicken sauce.

  4. Pour the sauce over the fish and vegetables and mix in.

  5. Mash the potatoes, adding a little extra milk and butter. Spread the mash on top of the pie. Bake, on a baking sheet, for 15-20 mins, until the sauce is bubbling over the edge a little. Grill to brown the top, if you like.
