Fish Pie

Posted By Kerri


This morning, we were set on using up the chorizo in the fridge that we bought back from Barcelona but by the time we got to the supermarket we had decided to make fish pie; funny how that happens. We haven’t made this for a long time, in fact I don’t think it’s featured anywhere on here so it must be a really long time.

We started off by infusing some milk with shallots, garlic, peppercorns, bay and sage; then adding the cod, salmon and prawns and cooking through. We used the milk that the fish had been poached in to mash the potatoes (with butter and salt and pepper, obviously), added some brocolli, topped with cheese and grilled until brown.

This was our attempt at a slightly healthier version of the classic fish pie, hence the lack of bechamel. I think it worked quite well although the fish itself could have benefitted from some additional flavours, we forgot the nutmeg and/or cloves for one thing. We’ll work on that for next time.

    Mad thought: How about incorporating the chorizo in a fish pie? Maybe more prawns than fish… I can see the smokey paprika-y thing working here – but perhaps a sauce based on stock rather than milk? Maybe topped with sliced potato rather than mashed?
    I recently read a Gordon Ramsay recipe for fish pie made with pastry rather than potato – doesn’t that just miss the whole point of fish pie??

    Where you hiding in our kitchen last night? We had the exact same thought about the chorizo. I like the idea of a stock based sauce, I think that would work well.
