  1. Place potatoes and parsnip in a pan with just enough boiling water to cover them, lid on. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender, drain. Place haddock in a deep frying pan with the milk and a small knob of butter and simmer for 10-15 minutes (timings will depend on thickness of fish).
  2. Drain (save milk to mash with potatoes). Mash potatoes and parsnips with 200ml of the milk used to poach the fish and 2 tbsp fresh parsley. Mix together the mayonnaise and 2 tbsp fresh parsley. Mound the mash into the bottom of a shallow dish, top with fish pieces, add spoonfuls of the mayo, top with prawns and scatter with extra parsley and serve.
