This lovely fish pie with broccoli on the side is great in cold weather.
Serves: 4 adults Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
- 700g potatoes, peeled and chopped so they are roughly the same size
- 425ml 1% fat milk or you could also use semi-skimmed milk
- 25g lower-fat spread
- 25g flour
- 4 haddock fillets (or any kind of white fish or salmon)
- 25g reduced-fat hard cheese, grated
- 320g broccoli, to serve
- Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) or gas mark 6.
- Boil the potatoes for 10–15 minutes until they are soft, then drain them and mash with a little milk.
- To make the sauce, put your hob on low and melt the spread. Add the flour and stir to a paste. Then add the milk bit by bit, stirring, until it starts to bubble and thicken.
- Pour the sauce over chunks of fish in an ovenproof dish, then top with the mashed potato and sprinkle the cheese over the top.
- Put the dish in the oven on the middle shelf. Bake for 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
- A few minutes before your pie is ready, cook the broccoli. Cut it into pieces, put it in a saucepan and add boiling water. Boil for 4–7 minutes until tender. Drain.
- Take your fish pie out of the oven and serve with the broccoli.
- Use whole milk and full-fat spread and cheese if you are cooking for under-twos.
- Green beans or peas are a good alternative to broccoli.
