    This is delicious! My DC (3y & 10m)wolfed it down. I too left out the honey, and added a bit of melted soft cheese and grated cheese to the top layer. We'll definitely have it again. Actually I made the full quantity and froze half - there was just enough for two adults and two little ones.

    Fab recipe - made it for super-fussy inlaws and they wolfed it down. Only changes I made were to use half parmasan and half cheddar and I skipped the honey cause I didn't have any in. Will def be cooking this again and again and again!

    I love this recipe - you can use literally any kind of fish - as long as you have one bit of smoked in there, either haddock or mackerel. Or of course if your children don't like smoked fish you can skip that. I liked the fact that you only used one pan (plus the dish) and quite a lot of it could be done in advance, so it's great for a lunch or dinner party - once it's in the oven you can relax. And because it's so filling/tasty, you can just serve it with a salad. If you want to sneak extra veg in, frozen peas work quite well, though possibly best to boil them for a minute or so before adding.

    the recipe sounds complicated, but really all you are doing is making a cheese sauce and adding leeks and fish to it! It always seems to impress the people I serve it to which is why I often make it for guests..
