This week’s delicious recipe from the Doolin cottage, is the Fish Pie.

Ingredients:

  • 1kg Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and halved
  • 400ml milk, plus a splash
  • 25g butter, plus a knob
  • 25g plain flour
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 x pack fish pie mix (cod, salmon, smoked haddock etc, weight around 320g-400g depending on pack size)
  • 1 tsp Dijon or English mustard
  • ½ a 25g pack or a small bunch chives, finely snipped
  • handful frozen sweetcorn
  • handful frozen petits pois
  • handful grated cheddar

Method

STEP 1:
Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas mark 6.

STEP 2:
Put 1kg potatoes, peeled and halved, in a saucepan and pour over enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil and then simmer until tender.

STEP 3:
When cooked, drain thoroughly and mash with a splash of milk and a knob of butter. Season with ground black pepper.

STEP 4:
Put 25g butter, 25g plain flour and 4 finely sliced spring onions in another pan and heat gently until the butter has melted, stirring regularly. Cook for 1-2 mins.

STEP 5:

Gradually whisk in 400ml milk using a balloon whisk if you have one. Bring to the boil, stirring to avoid any lumps and sticking at the bottom of the pan. Cook for 3-4 mins until thickened.

STEP 6:

Take off the heat and stir in 320g-400g mixed fish, 1 tsp Dijon or English mustard, a small bunch of finely snipped chives, handful of sweetcorn and handful of petits pois. Spoon into an ovenproof dish or 6-8 ramekins.

STEP 7:

Spoon the potato on top and sprinkle with a handful of grated cheddar cheese.

STEP 8:

Pop in the oven for 20-25 mins or until golden and bubbling at the edges. Alternatively, cover and freeze the pie or mini pies for another time
