Mashed Potatoes

  • 1 lb russet or yukon gold potatoes, quartered
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 2 TBS cream
  • Salt & pepper

Cream Sauce

  • 2 TBS butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 5 baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 2 TBS flour
  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ lemon, juice
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • ¼ tsp old bay seasoning
  • tsp dried dill
  • Salt & Pepper


  • ¾ lb white fish, cubed
  • ½ lb salmon, skin removed and cubed
  • ½ cup cheese, grated for topping


  • 1 green onion (tops only), chopped


  • Begin by melting the butter in a medium sized saucepan. Add the onions and mushrooms and allow to sweat for a few minutes.
  • Add the garlic and stir until aromatic.
  • Add the cream and allow to thicken, 5 minutes. Note: If it's too thick, thin the sauce with additional cream, milk or half & half.
  • Add the lemon juice, white wine, Worcestershire and the spices and cook together for a few more minutes.
  • Now add the fish and cook together for 2-3 minutes. Note: The fish will poach in the cream sauce while it bakes.
  • Spoon mixture into mini cast iron skillets, rimkens or a small-ish shallow baking dish.
  • Top with mashed potatoes.
  • Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. At the 25 minute point, top with cheese and turn the oven to boiler and allow the top to get golden brown.
  • Garnish with green onion, enjoy and cheers🥂!


  • For your white fish, you could use Chowder Fish (i.e. Tilapia),Cod, Halibut, or Haddock.
  • I suggest cutting the fish in large chunks because you don't want it breaking up too much in the sauce.
  • I added mushrooms and onions and you could replace with peas and leeks.
  • This recipe feeds two with leftovers and you could easily double if you're looking for more servings.
  • I used cream in the recipe and you could substitute with milk or half & half, if you'd rather. The recipe only calls for 1 cup of cream and if you find you need to think your sauce, I would add additional cream, milk or half & half.
  • Create peaks with your mashed potatoes because that will help create some color to your pie.
