1kg potatoes, peeled, cut into chunks
1 bay leaf
1 knob butter
1 tin soup, (celery or mushroom)

- Meanwhile put the leek and pieces of fish in a large frying pan, pour the milk over and add some parsley stalks and the bay leaf.
- Bring to a simmer, cover and poach over a low heat for 5 minutes until the fish turns opaque. Leave 5 minutes in the pan.
- Lift the fish out of the pan with a draining spoon then pour the milk into a jug.
