Make sauce & mix in

Start warming the milk in a saucepan - make sure not to burn!

While the milk is heating up, melt the butter in a non-stick saucepan and fry the chopped onions until soft.

5
Done

Sprinkle the flour over the onions, then gradually add the warm milk to create your white sauce. Stir continuously to avoid any nasty little lumps! Simmer for 4-5 minutes and stir often.

6
Done

Add the flaked fish to the sauce and stir again. You'll want the fish to break up as much as possible.

7
Done

Add the potatoes to the mix and then season liberally. You'll want this to taste quite salty. Cook over a low-heat until all the potatoes are hot through and the sauce has thickened.

Serve in a bowl with chopped chives and rye bread with butter!
