So we noticed that our recipes seem to go down really well, but were always aware that our weekly posts were on a Sunday evening.  Therefore meaning that they completely missed the perfect time for you guys to actually be able to try them out, the weekend! So bearing this is mind we will now share our favourite recipe of the week every Wednesday night, in the hope that it will inspire you for the weekend, and you can let us know how you get on…

Really Simple Fish Pie

First of all this is a really simple and delicious recipe for a simple fish pie.   In addition there is no need to poach the fish prior to cooking, or even make a roux.  Just place all the ingredients in an overproof dish together and bung in the oven, what could be simpler!

Ingredients

1 x handful of mussels (out of the shell)
1 x handful of Prawns (peeled)
1 x handful of squid rings (turned inside out and membranes removed so tender)
2 x salmon (or trout) fillets
2 x small cod (or any white fish) fillets
2 x small smoked haddock fillets
6 x large potatoes
1 x large handful of asparagus (tough ends removed and cut into small spears)
1 x large handful of chopped spinach
Olive oil
150 ml fresh cream
Salt
Celery salt
Pepper
Quarter of a cup of lemon juice
1 x handful of chopped fresh flat parsley leaves
Cheddar cheese
Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. First of all put your potatoes on to boil, and cook until tender.
  2. While your spuds are cooking. Spread all the prawns, squid and mussels in the bottom of a large casserole dish. Chop all the fish into small chunks and throw these on top. (To make even simpler you could ask your fishmonger for a prepared fish selection already mixed and chopped)
  3. Next pour the lemon juice over the fish mixture and add the parsley.
  4. Add the asparagus and spinach over the top then drizzle some olive oil over the whole dish.
  5. Grate over some parmesan then season with salt, pepper and celery salt.
  6. Furthermore when your potatoes are cooked, mash with cream, olive oil and season to taste.
  7. Spoon the mash over the fish mixture. Grate some cheddar and parmesan over the top and grind a little pepper too.
  8. Finally put the pie into the oven for 40 mins at 200 degrees C. It should come out a little crispy, but watch out will be very hot, so let it cool for a few minutes before serving with samphire or sea kale.
