Fluffy smoked haddock and potato pie

JJ loves this and so do we. If it is a bit too sloppy for him to pick up I mix in some breadcrumbs to stiffen it up which works well.

750g potatoes (floury mashable ones)
300-400g smoked haddock (or a mixture of smoked and unsmoked - I often add more as we love fish)
200ml milk
1 bunch spring onions (I have used leeks too which works well)
1/2 creme fraiche
100g of cheese (I often add a bit more)

Peel and boil the potatoes for about 15 mins
Pu the milk and spring onions in a pan, add the fish, cover and simmer for about 8-10 mins until cooked.
Save the milk and onions for later. Flake the fish and check for bones.
Mash the potatoes using the milk and onions (you may not need all of it) and then mix in the creme fraiche.
Fold in the fish and 1/2 the cheese.
Put in an oven proof dish, sprinkle over the rest of the cheese and bake at 200 c for about 20 mins till golden.
JJ loves it with broccoli (but then he loves everything with broccoli!)
