Any one know of any good fish pie recipe that's quick and easy to make???
I hear there is quite a good pie for sale in most good supermarkets in the chill section. Black box, nice photo, very good pie. It even comes with its own dish.
The market bar in Dublin does an excellent fish pie as well!
It doesn't matter too much what you do just as long there is some smoked fish, white fish, decent mussels and plenty of cream!
This is more a method than a recipe for fish pie as quantities vary. Put peeled spuds in one pan to boil and put fish - e.g. some salmon and smoked coley and a piece of cod in another pan. Add a few black peppercorns, some celery, onion - anything that comes to hand really and just cover with cold milk. Bring to boil and poach gently for about 7-8 minutes. Remove fish and allow to cool a little if you have time. Flake fish and put in lasagne-type dish. Make a bechamel sauce, using the drained poaching milk, or if that't too much trouble (or you don't have the time - that's the excuse I use :lol: - use a pouch of ready made sauce. If I don't use the milk for making a sauce, I use it to mash the potatoes along with some butter so it still gets used. Put a layer of frozen peas over the flaked fish, and some sweetcorn, then a layer of prawns (defrosted if frozen - or use a tub of prawns). Pour over the sauce. Cover with a blanket of mashed potato and sprinkle a little cheese over the top. Cook in oven 180deg for about 30-40 mins. This is the basic recipe, much loved by children, so it does not contain any wine, cream or herbs, but feel free to add any or all of these if you want to make a more 'grown up' dish.
Thanks Bree!! Bee, sounds good, will try that out. :lol:
any ideas for fish pie that doesn't include salmon or strongly smoked fish? I'm trying to eat more fish and love fish pie but hate salmon and not so keen on smoked fish unless it's quite mild (although, I tried smoked eel before and it was delish :))
All that mess - we're 20 minutes in the oven or 4 in the zapper. There's salmon and i don't think the fish is too smokey - but that's an individual thing. I'm searching for our fish pie recipe, which should be on the webiste, but isn't so i'll see if we can get it back up there.
I do a fish pie in mushroom sauce. Poach smoked and white fish in milk for 10 mins whilst at the same time gently fying some sliced mushrooms in butter. Flake the fish and put in a pie dish. Make a white sauce using the milk used for poaching the fish and add the mushrooms. Add the sauce to the flaked fish. Now for the tastiest bit - thinly slice some very ripe tomatoes (preferably beef tomatoes) and place them on top of the fish mixture. Bung it in a moderate oven for about 20 mins and serve with some creamy mashed potatoes and some petit pois. Everyone has seconds in our house. The sweetness of the tomatoes contrasts beautifully with the smokiness of the fish. Yum
Hi Kaner, welcome to the forum, that sounds delicious! ... all hungry now ...
Hey Kaner - that sounds INTERESTING. Tomatoes!, never had them in a fish pie. Will certainly help give some colour to it. I'm liking the butter element- reckon i'd like your fish pie
Put nutmeg, cloves, a bay leaf and lots of dried dill into the poaching milk, then strain it into a jug for the sauce... I love nutmeg, me.
your avatar looks lie he's been smoking it!
Ok lads, please just smoke the nut meg and get it out of your systems. This is the second or third reference to smoking nutmeg. We will end up being the cause for nutmeg becoming a banned substance.
Seriously? Did I miss a cutting edge nutmeg discussion?!
That 'avatar' thing looks weird. :roll:
Smoke some nutmeg, trust me it stops looking weird really quickly.
