Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves 4.

  1. Preheat the broiler to high. Slice and rinse the leek. Slice the celery, dice the carrot and cut the potatoes into 3.5 centimetre (1 1/2 inch) chunks.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot over high heat. Add the leek, celery and carrot, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook for three minutes.

  4. Cut the white fish and salmon into 2.5 centimetre (one inch) pieces and stir them into the casserole. Return to a simmer, cover and cook for another five minutes, or until the fish is cooked.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the mayonnaise, yogourt, garlic, paprika and chili powder. Slice the baguette and broil both sides for two to three minutes, or until golden.
  6. Stir the tarragon and parsley into the casserole just before transferring it to four large bowls. Serve with the spicy yogourt and toasted baguette slices.

Chef’s tips

  • Select boiling potatoes rather than baking potatoes, as the pieces will hold their shape better.
  • Make this casserole with mixed fresh or frozen seafood instead of, or in addition to, the fish.
  • Try fresh sardine or mackerel fillets instead of the salmon.
