  1. Preheat the oven to 210°C
  2. Put potatoes into a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to allow a simmer for 20 minutes, or until soft.
  3. In a separate large pan, gently sauté the onion and carrot in a little olive oil for 5 minutes or until soft. Mix in the mustard, garlic, milk and cream cheese. Simmer gently for 6-8 minutes or until it thickens. Remove from the heat and stir through cheddar cheese, baby spinach and parsley. Season well with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Drain the potatoes and mash well. Add in milk, cream cheese and then when cooled slightly fold through the egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  5. On the base of a 2L capacity baking dish, evenly place small chunks of the Little Tuna and the raw prawns.
  6. Carefully pour the creamy vegetable sauce over the tuna and prawn mix.
  7. Spoon the potato topping to form a layer on top of the fish and sauce mix. Carefully fork the mixture to spread it out. Sprinkle with cheddar and parmesan.
  8. Place dish on the middle shelf of the oven for 30 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
  9. Serve with steamed broccoli or a fresh side salad. Enjoy!
