A simple to make, tasty fish pie recipe which links to our tomato and vegetable growing theme. As always, our recipes seem to be more Vegetables with … as we add extra vegetables compared to the original source. Adding Creme Fraiche makes the pie moist without spoiling the flavour.
Ingredients (for 2)
500g mashed potatoes
2 celery sticks
150g Smoked Haddock
75g White Fish
2 tablespoons Creme Fraiche
75g Cheddar Cheese
Additional veg depending on season (e.g. Cabbage, spinach, Swiss Chard, etc.)
We use potatoes mashed a previous time (including frozen) but you can cook them whilst you’re preparing the rest of the ingredients.
Coarsely grate the carrot, celery, cheese, into a large bowl. Finely chop the additional veg. (or grate if they’re of that type). Cut the fish into bite sized pieces and mix them in. Add the zest and juice of the lemon and the Creme Fraiche.
Mix them all together and put into the cooking dish. Cover with the mashed potatoes and slice the tomato on the top.
Put into the oven at 200C and cook for about an hour until piping hot and the potatoes are crispy and golden.
That’s it. You can serve with other vegetable (peas, sweetcorn, etc.) or you could have added them to the basic fish pie so all you’ve got is a single course with everything in it. Simple
