  • Fish Pie

    White boneless fish such as cod or haddock is best for this recipe. Monkfish is a nice alternative.

    Take some milk (enough to cover the fish you will poach with it later) and heat gently just below simmering. Add an onion sliced in two each having a bayleaf attached by a clove (used like a nail), and poach the onions for about 15 minutes.

    (At this point steam some potatoes to make mash pots).

    Then add your fish and poach until the fish is nearly cooked. Remove fish, breaking each bit into bite size pieces, and place in oven dish. Discard onion and save infused milk.

    Make a rue with butter and flour. In a pan melt a generous amount of butter gently, and add flour and stir until you have a smooth paste. Then bit by bit, add the milk, stiring continuously, until you have a white sauce. Add Cheddar cheese and mustard powder (or english mustard) to taste (and a bit of black pepper or even chilli powder if you want) and pour over the fish.

    Cover the mix with mashed potato. Normally I like lots of butter with mash, but only use some milk (infused if any left), to help make it smooth. Then cover the mash with more Cheddar cheese.

    Put in oven until cheese is golden brown and then serve with peas. Enjoy.

      Same dish, different name ? Also add some cooked shrimp/prawns to the fish just before covering with the cheese sauce and then potatoes for something a bit more exotic. Or even hard boiled eggs .

        I'd rather chew my left arm off than eat fish.

            I tried Kedgeree when I was in London a couple of years ago...It was quite good! Sort of a fish breakfast casserole.

                Fishcakes
                Sensible food for the start of a new year .

                Ingredients
                500g Boneless Cod, Haddock, Smoked Haddock or Salmon or mix of some or all.
                500g Potatoes.
                1/2 pint Milk
                1 small Onion
                1 Clove
                1 tsp Mustard Powder
                Good grind Black Pepper.
                1 Egg beaten.
                Unsalted Butter for frying.

                Option 1: Egg yolk and bread crumbs.
                Option 2: 25g Parsley, Tarragon and/or Dill.



                Method
                Peel and steam potatoes until cooked.
                Meanwhile, place onion, bayleaf, clove, mustard powder and pepper into milk. Gently heat milk to simmering point and add fish. Simmer until just cooked. 10 minutes or so. Remove fish and set aside. Strain milk and keep. Mash potatoes, using some of the flavoured milk to make smooth. Then break up fish into the mash, add egg and squidge using hands until combined. Then make into patties of size wanted. At this point you may want to brush the patties with egg yolk and cover with breadcrumbs. I never bother. Then fry in butter until golden brown. Serve with peas and salsa verde.

                If using herbs, add at same time as adding the fish and egg to the mash. Use parsley if all white fish, dill if salmon only, tarragon or parsley if a mix.
