Fish pie

You can use any kind of white fish, such as cod or haddock, or even salmon to make this hot and filling fish pie. Salmon is a good source of vitamins A and D.

  • Serves: 4
  • Time: 60 minutes

Ingredients

  • 700g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 fillets of haddock (or any kind of white fish or salmon)
  • 425ml 1% fat milk
  • 25g low-fat spread
  • 25g flour
  • 25g reduced-fat strong hard cheese
  • 320g broccoli (to serve)

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC or gas mark 6.

2. Start by preparing the potatoes. Boil them for about 10 to 15 minutes until they're soft, then drain them and mash with a little milk.

3. To make the sauce, mix the milk, low-fat spread and flour in a small pan and warm over a medium heat. Stir continuously until the sauce starts to bubble and thicken.

4. Pour the sauce over chunks of fish in an ovenproof dish, then top with mashed potato and sprinkle the cheese over the top.

5. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Serve with broccoli.

Other options

Alternatively, use any kind of white fish or salmon. Try peas or green beans instead of broccoli.
