I was told recently that I should share more things in my actual blog as opposed to stories, so I thought I would start with a killer dinner meal that we love and eat every week.
This fish pie recipe is really simple, really tasty, and sure to be a crowd pleaser. Let’s go!
- Either 3-4 fillets of a white fish like Basa, or buy a frozen kg packet for $7. You can use this over 2 pies then.
- Frozen packet of diced or sliced vegetables, again I use about half a pack for each pie and I think they come in a 1kg.
- Potatoes. About half a kilo again.
- You’ll need a bit of each: flour, butter, grated cheese, and one litre of milk.
Add the fish to a baking dish, and cover with milk. Cook at 200 (like everything else I cook). You want it to poach the fish, and yes I cook it from frozen so don’t stress about defrosting.
Boil the potatoes (to mash). I often use pumpkin or sweet potato with them as well, and usually put in some mustard or mustard powder. Totally optional.
In a frying pan, melt the butter (a BIG knob of it), add in about 3/4 cup of flour, and half a litre of milk. Use a fork to stir, de-clump (I’m a very fancy recipe writer guys), to make your white sauce – add cheese, stir on low. Add in frozen vegetables.
Take our the fish from the oven and put in with the vegetables/flour mix. It should break up very easily, and mix in. This is now your base, so transfer back to the oven dish, and add your mash on top. Add some extra cheese and cook for about 10 minutes or until your happy with a little crispy top.
Voila! Picture below is tonights meal, which I made a bit wetter (added more milk) than normal, so its more a giant mush that a ‘pie’, but the taste is still exceptional and we all had two bowls.
