1. Place the potatoes in a pan of lightly salted water and boil for 20 minutes. Drain, season and mash with 100ml/3½ fl oz of the stock. Set aside and keep warm.

3. Lift the fish onto a plate and strain the stock into a jug to cool. Flake the fish into large pieces and place in a baking dish. Arrange the prawns on top of the fish, then scatter over the chopped parsley, dill, peas and sweetcorn.

4. To make the sauce, return the reserved cooled stock to the heat, bring to the boil and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring continuously. Add the gravy granules and stir and cook until the sauce coats the back of the spoon. Remove from the heat, season with salt, pepper and nutmeg, then pour over the fish mixture.

5. Preheat the oven to 200c/ Gas 6. Use the mashed potato mixture to top the pie, starting at the edge of the dish to and working your way in - push the mash right to the edges of the dish to seal. Fluff up the top with a fork, brush with the beaten egg then bake for 30 minutes or until lightly golden and bubbling.
