We created this section to the website to help promote healthy food habits which are accessible to everyone whilst providing new and interesting alternatives to your weekly mealtimes.

So, our first recipe is 'Easy Fish Pie', a versatile dish which is great for families, groups of friends and even toddlers.

Prep time: 15 mins 

Cook: 45 mins                           

Serves: 4

Ingredients 

  • 300g  potatoes, halved

  • 250g skinless fish fillets (salmon/cod/ plaice) or a mixture

  • 300ml milk

  • 50g margarine

  • leek, finely sliced

  • 25g flour

  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃ (180℃ fan / gas mark 6), chop the potatoes and add to a saucepan. Cook the potatoes in boiling water for 10-15 mins, until tender and mash with a little milk. 
  2. Put the fish in a shallow saucepan and pour over the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 mins. Drain the fish, reserving the milk, then set aside.
  3. Heat half the margarine in a medium saucepan, add the leek, then cook for 5-6 mins until softened.
  4.  Stir in the flour for 1 min, then remove from the heat.
  5.  Gradually add the milk, stirring well between each addition.
  6.  Return to the heat and stir until the sauce comes to the boil. Simmer for 2 mins, then stir in the parsley and mustard.
  7.  Flake the fish into large chunks, fold into the sauce, then place in a small ovenproof dish. 
  8. Smooth the mashed potatoes over the fish and bake for 20-25 mins until the potatoes are golden and the sauce bubbling at the sides.
