  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Place potatoes into a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain and mash with milk and butter until smooth.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry onion and carrots in the oil until starting to soften. Season with salt, pepper and chili powder. Stir in the cream and parsley, and remove from the heat.
  4. Place fish in an even layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the cream and vegetable mixture over the fish, then cover with a layer of mashed potatoes. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until piping hot throughout.

This recipe is awesome! I'm not much of a fish fan; I used cod and talapia. I also used cayenne pepper (1/4 to 1/2 t) which really spiced it up! I found out at the last minute that I didn't have any cream, so I mixed in a can of cream of celery soup after browning the onions, and it was just awesome! We will make this recipe again and again!

The original version was bland. We sprinkled the top with some lemon juice and salted and peppered it. The texture was great...next time I will add a little more flavor and twice the chili pwdr. I used tilapia and added extra carrots. The fish flavor wasn't overpowering and that was nice for the kids.

to make this dish low carb friendly, simply substitute brown rice for the potatoes. YOu can also substitute shrimp for the fish if you'd like, or use both!

This pie is excellent, I have made so many times. A friend who came for lunch loved it and then told me he didn't like fish. I sprinkle some of the cheese on before I put the potatoes on, I also don't use as much cheese as called for. Thank you soooo much for this recipe

Super yummy! Everyone ate it up. I added spinach, peas and 2 cloves of garlic, and also subbed a very small amount of grated parmesan for the cheddar, and red pepper flakes & paprika for the chili powder. I made the potatoes very dry so mine was not soupy in the least. Delicious!

I sauteed thawed frozen spinach with the carrots. Left out the parsley. With swordfish I added a chunky marinara mix. I dont eat fish often as I cant seem to cook it. This was fantastic. I will make again and again I'm sure. Wonderful recipe and very flexible for changes although I'm sure even if you made it to the exact recipe it would be great also.

Great. I added more fish and fewer potatoes. Also, used FF half and half and you couldn't tell the difference.

this is very good. granddaugher said 5 stars, hubby said it was good, but too many potatoes. i liked it because it was different and was a good way to get fish in our diets. i did listen to other reviewers and used more spice (old bay). will make again.
