Treat yourself to a cosy night in with a deliciously comforting dinner of grilled smoked haddock, served up with an indulgently fluffy, creamy mash. 

  1. Preheat the grill to medium. In a medium pan of salted water, bring the potatoes to the boil, then reduce the heat and cover. Simmer for 20-25 mins, until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, melt half the butter in a small pan and add the leeks. Cover and sauté for 5 mins. Transfer to a small bowl and add the cheese, spring onions, 2 tsp mustard, 1 tbsp double cream and the parsley. Season and mix well.
  3. Line a large grill tray with foil and put the haddock loins on top. Pile the Cheddar and leek topping onto the fish and nestle the tomatoes alongside.
  4. Grill the fish and tomatoes for 12-15 mins, until the fish flakes and is cooked through and the topping is golden.
  5. Drain the cooked potatoes and leave to steam for 1 min. Using a potato masher, mash well, then mix in the remaining cream, butter and mustard. Serve alongside the fish and tomatoes, and garnish with a handful of parsley.
