Smoked Cod Easy Fish Pie Recipe

I am not keen on eating fish, but appreciate that it's a very healthy food, and something I should try and eat more of. I prefer smoked fish as it tastes less fish-like, and this evening I made a fish pie for the first time ever...Here is my recipe if you wanted to have a try.

Serves 2-3 people

1 bag of Tesco Value Smoked Cod 400gm in weight
1 large Potato
2 Carrots
1 stock cube (I used Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot Portion)
16oz Milk
40gm Cornflour
2 Bay Leaves
Juice of half a Lemon
Freshly ground Salt & Pepper

Pop the fish into a lidded microwaveable dish and cook for 6-8 minutes until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork. Place on a plate and gently break into pieces (removing any bones).

Boil the potato with the carrot (I left the skin on the potato for extra fibre). When cooked, mash together.

Make a white sauce by putting the cornflour in a saucepan, blend this with some milk until smooth. Now add the rest of the milk and the bay leaves and bring to the boil, whisking or stirring continually to prevent sticking and lumps. Add salt and pepper to taste, and a squeeze of half a lemon. Remove the bay leaves.

Place the cooked fish in an ovenproof dish, pour over the sauce - mix together so that the fish is covered in the sauce. Put the potato and carrot mixture on the top and spread with a fork to cover the fish mixture. Bake for approx 30 minutes at 180c until crispy and golden on top and completely heated through.  Serve with peas (and ketchup if so inclined!)

Pop on a funky plate for added retro-ness! You can choose a vintage plate at yay retro! here!
