To make two fishy potato boats, you will need


  • 2 medium baking potatoes

2. Prick the potatoes with a fork and place on a baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or until tender, turning once

3. When cooked cut the potatoes in half and scoop out the flesh. Mash with a fork. Add the fish and mix until well combined then pile back into the potato shells

4. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the potatoes and return to the oven for 5 to 10 minutes until the cheese melts

5. Meanwhile cut four sticks of celery or carrot. Cut four tall triangles from the sliced cheese
