Easy Fish Pie

Category: food

Make the most of fresh Australian haddock to create this twist on a classic. Make a large batch and there will even be enough for dinner the following night too. This recipe reheats beautifully in the oven.


1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (200° fan) | 425F | gas 7.

2. Combine the milk and cream in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over a medium heat and then add the fish. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes.

3. Remove the fish from the poaching liquid with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove the poaching liquid from heat and leave to cool for 2-3 minutes.

4. After cooling, whisk in the parsley, egg yolks and then the Cheddar. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.

5. Grease a round baking dish with the butter. Arrange the poached fish and sliced mushrooms in the dish and then top with layers of the sliced potatoes, seasoning between the layers.

6. Pour over the Cheddar sauce and then bake for 25-30 minutes until golden on top.

7. Remove from the oven and leave to stand briefly before serving.
