The we love fish! Pie

All hail fish lovers, heres another dish that might tickle your fancy. This ones adapted from The Feb issue of Jamie Oliver magazine., and gives a bit of a twist on the classic which were sure you’ll enjoy.

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Then, boil three potatoes cut into chunks in salty water and simmer for 15 mins.

Whist these are boiling, boil up three eggs for three mins before cooling and slicing into quarters.

In a large pan, simmer 300ml of milk and add in 300g of mixed fish. I used cod, smoked haddock and salmon. Cook for a few minutes, being careful not to let the milk curdle. Once it looks done, remove the fish and set aside.

To make the sauce, melt a big knob of butter in a pan over a medium heat. Stir in a sprinkling of flour and keep this stirring into a smooth paste. Then, remove from the heat and gradually whisk in the poaching milk from the fish to make a creamy white sauce. This should start to thicken after a while, so add lots of seasoning and a good sprinkling of fresh dill.

Back to the potatoes, drain and allow to steam dry for a few mins in the colander. Once they’re all hot and steamy, mash until smooth with a generous knob of butter, a good splash of milk and lots of seasoning. Mmmm.

Spoon the fish mixture into an oven proof dish big enough for three, and chuck in the hard boiled eggs. Then, pour over the tasty sauce so it’s evenly covered. Top this with the smooth potato and finish with some grated mature cheddar. 

Serve with whatever veg you fancy. We went for crispy oven baked kale and tender stem broccoli, with a drizzle of sesame oil and lots of S&P. C x
