Fish Pie

 

Ingredients:

  • 1kg floury potatoes
  • 400g of cod, haddock or any firm white fish
  • Approx. ½ litre milk
  • 50g of butter
  • 50g of flour.
  • Tbsp Capers
  • Zest of ½ large lemon
  • Extra butter, cream and milk for the mashed potatoes (optional but recommended)
  • Cheddar cheese (optional but recommended)

Method:

  1. Peel, chop and boil potatoes until cooked through
  2. Simmer the fish very gently in the milk until just cooked
  3. Make a roux – melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and stir to create a dough. Do not burn! On a low heat, slowly add the fishy milk a little at a time mixing vigorously until all is incorporated, and you have a creamy sauce.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, grated lemon zest and capers. Taste to check it’s good!
  5. Add the fish pieces to the sauce, flaking it and checking for bones as you go. Then pour the sauce into a dish
  6. Mash the potatoes with extra butter, cream, milk, salt and pepper until light, fluffy and delicious
  7. Spoon or pipe the mash onto the fish sauce and sprinkle over the cheddar cheese if using.
  8. Bake in the oven until golden and bubbling (approximately 20 minutes at 190° )
