Fish Pies

Welcome to 3 new followers via Bloglovin - Paidinchickens, Jane Staveley and Karen Hyman. You are all most welcome.

Morrison's had some cod half price so I bought a chunk priced £3.50. We rarely eat fish meals (other than the odd fish and chips, and the occasional fish finger!), so I thought it about time I made some fish pies.

Adapting the chicken and vegetable cobbler recipe from my recipe tab above, I doubled everything on the sauce side, using milk that the fish had been poached in. I have noticed in the recipe that it makes a sauce that needs extra thickening, so I used more flour and less liquid to get it to the consistency I wanted!

The fish was divided between two dishes - not a lot considering the size it was pre-poached:
Once the sauce was cooked, I added some cooked carrots and frozen French beans and poured it over the fish:
Then I made a big pan of mashed potato and topped the sauce with it:
Ah, as if by magic, a third dish has arrived. Yes, I had some leftover sauce and as it wasn't too fishy, stirred some grated cheese into it, then topped it with mash that also had cheese stirred in. We had that one for tea with sweetcorn. The other two were frozen for future use.

  3. We're trying to eat more fish at the moment and fish pie is one way that I've found to be more palatable so we have it every other week. I like the sound of your sauce DC. I just add a parsley sauce from a packet and throw in some peas but yours sounds very tasty.

    1. The chicken version of the sauce is nice but I now use it with most things pale, chicken, turkey, fish, ham etc.
