Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.
In my opinion Fish Pie is one of the ultimate family comfort meals. Not light on washing up and a bit of a faff but worth it!
Prep: 30 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour
500g mixed fish – I used salmon, un-dyed smoked haddock & cod
100g king prawns
1 onion halved
2 bay leaves
1 pt milk
3 tbsp flour
1 tsp dijon
50g frozen peas
For the topping:-
1kg potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
50g grated cheddar
Add the onion and bay leaves to the milk and simmer for 5 minutes. Lift out the onion and add the fish. Poach the fish in the milk for 5 minutes.
Strain off the milk reserving it for the white sauce.
To make the white sauce add the flour to a pan with the butter and whisk to make a roux. Whisk in the milk until you have a smooth sauce. Stir in the Dijon.
For the mash, boil the potatoes until soft then mash wish the butter and milk. Stir in the cheese so that it melts. Season and set aside.
Add the fish, the raw prawns, peas and spinach to the white sauce and spoon into a pie dish.
Top the fish with the mash and bake in an oven at 200 degrees, 180 fan for 30 minutes.
