Do you eat fish on Friday? Do you know where this tradition came from?
I think one of the most comforting foods during dank winter days is fish pie. It is warming, comforting and can be a really healthy option too. Great to come home too after work when you need something tasty and filling after a full week at work a great start to the weekend. Now our usual fare on Friday is pilchards on toast – but I will bring you this delight some other time.
300g mixed fish, this can be purchased from supermarkets already prepared, use a white fish, a smoked fish and salmon.
2/3 pint of lactose free milk
1 tablespoon of cornflour
1 1/2 teaspoons of mustard
Small handful of flat leaved parsley
2cm piece of freshly grated parmesan
1/3 small Butternut Squash, 1 tablespoon of garlic infused oil, 1/2 lemon
600g of potato
1 tablespoon of margarine
3 tablespoons of lactose free milk
Chop the squash, drizzle with oil and lemon and roast in the oven till soft
Boil the potato
Mash the squash and potato with margarine and 3 tablespoons of milk add a small amount of salt
Add milk to a pan with mustard, parsley and mix cornflour with a little milk and add this to the pan – cook till thickened.
Add fish to a dish and pour over sauce till the fish is covered, keep remaining sauce to serve with the dish later.
Spoon on the mash, level with a fork and then sprinkle on the cheese.
Place the dish in the centre of an oven at gas mark 6, 250ºC for 25 minutes.
Serve with the warmed sauce.

Looks delicious. Definitely going to give this a try. Can you freeze it, though?
I checked if you can freeze cooked fish – this article suggests you can http://www.eatwellscotland.org/keepingfoodsafe/storing/index.html but it suggests you shouldn’t reheat it more than once. But this doesn’t guarantee that this dish will be fine, it should be – but then again I didn’t freeze it, not enough left to freeze! 🙂
Also changed the recipe slightly as it might have too much butternut squash in it. Also if you have a problem with resistant starches freezing the potato might be a problem – although this is not the case for everyone. Hope this helps
Jules, I think when you changed the recipe you might have accidentally chopped off the last few instructions…
Hi, thanks for letting me know – sorted out now!
[…] to create. In the meantime, I’ve started as I mean to go on. I have just had a helping of FODMAP-free fish pie (a little dry and too much potato but I think I can fix that) and I currently have […]
Thanks for the link! 🙂
