Easy Peasy Fish Pie

We really should eat a little more fish in this household – we rarely have it. With that in mind when planning our meals for the week, I decided to make this easy peasy fish pie for us.

Why is it easy peasy? Well, it’s because the sauce is made using soft cream cheese – no faffing about making roux and white sauce here!

This pie will serve 3-4 people, depending on the portion size. The total calories for this dish is 1385.

Easy Peasy Fish Pie

Serves 3 – 4

Ingredients

  • 390g fish, cut into bitesized pieces – I use a fish mix of salmon, smoked haddock and white fish
  • 200g cooked and peeled prawns
  • 250g potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 60g frozen peas
  • 300g leeks, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • 300g pack Light Philedelphia Garlic & Herb Cream Cheese
  • 150ml skimmed milk
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • low/one cal oil spray (e.g., FryLight)

Method

  1. Spray some oil spray into a hot saucepan and add the leeks. Cook until softened (about 10 minutes). Stir in the garlic.
  2. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes until soft and mash with 25-50ml of the milk
  3. Add the fish, and gently stir through to get a bit of colour on all sides, then add 100ml of the milk. Poach for about 5 minutes before adding the peas.
  4. Stir in the cream cheese (if you feel it needs thinning down, add a drop more milk and the prawns. Season with black pepper.
  5. Finally, stir in the chopped herbs.
  6. Pour the creamy fish mix into an oven proof dish and top with the mashed potatoes.
  7. Place in a 200C oven for 15-20 minutes until the topping browns. Twist over more black pepper if you wish and serve.
