Fish Pie


I can’t believe how long it has been since I last posted, I have been so busy that making new dishes is not something I have had much time for, but here is one that I made back in April that is so delicious!

I will be in & out of posting over the spring/summer as we are off on our holiday to England, but maybe I will just have to post some of our food experiences over there!

This was so delicious I just wanted to keep eating, I really should make more meals with fish. The most significant reason I don’t is because getting fresh fish here is so hard. I am really looking forward to being able to get it when we go for our holiday to England! Mmmm, fish & chips 🙂

It took about an hour to make from start to finish, so pretty easy to make on a day that dinner time is not rushed & perfect for Good Friday (which was when I made it) A perfect British dinner from About.com

Serves: 4                    Calories: 294

  • 250 ml Fish Stock
  • 250 ml Milk
  • 12 oz Assorted Fish Pieces
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 750 g Mashed Potatoes – warm
  • 2 oz Butter
  • 1 medium Leek – washed & finely sliced (white part only)
  • 2 oz All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 tbsp Parsley – finely chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Handful Grated Cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4

Pour fish stock & milk into a large saucepan & bring to a very gentle simmer

Add the fish pieces & bay leaf & poach for 5 minutes

Remove the fish with a slotted spoon & set aside in a bowl. DO NOT THROW AWAY stock & milk, you will need it!

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan, over a medium heat. Add the sliced leeks and cook for 5 minutes until the leeks are soft

Whilst still hot, add the flour & stir well with a wooden spoon. Pour the fish stock & milk into the pan & stir again.

Raise the temperature & cook for 3 minutes until the sauce is slightly thickened. Turn off the heat & remove the bay leaf.

Add the fish, chopped parsley & season with salt and pepper. Put aside

Place the fish and sauce into an ovenproof dish, cover with a thick layer of mashed potato fluffed up with a fork

Sprinkle with grated cheese if using

Put the dish onto a baking sheet and cook in the center of the preheated oven for 20 – 30 minutes or until the sauce is bubbling beneath the potatoes. Serve immediately
