Fish and Chip Pie Recipe

I was recently sent some McCain Home Chips which I reviewed here but I wanted to try using them in a more creative way than just cooking them. I have been wanting to add more fish to my diet and recently made a fish stew which was well received by the family. This time I decided to try making a fish and chip pie. I would use the frozen chips as the topping instead of pastry or potato.

It might seem odd but I have never made a fish pie from scratch before although I have tried ready made ones. I didn’t think it could be that hard so I gave it a try.

The finished result actually turned out well and I was very pleased. Definitely one I shall be trying again.

This is the recipe I tried:

Ingredients

  • 700g (1½ lb) mixed white fish and prawns
  • pinch salt
  • milk or water to cover fish
  • 50g (2oz) butter
  • 100g (40oz) mushrooms
  • 90 ml (6 level tbsp) plain flour
  • 300 ml (½ pint) milk
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 hard boiled eggs, shelled and chopped
  • Frozen chips

Method

  1. 1.Hard boil the eggs and chop into bits after shelling them.
  2. Put the white fish in a pan with a pinch of salt and enough water or milk to just cover it. Cover the pan with a lid. Bring to the boil then remove from the heat and leave for five minutes.
  3. Remove the fish from the pan with a slotted spoon. Flake the fish and remove any bones then add to a casserole dish. Add the eggs and prawns.
  4. Keep ½ pint of the liquid the fish was cooked in.
  5. Melt the butter in a pan and sauté the mushrooms. Add them to the casserole dish. FishPie2 zps0bb14e7e Fish and Chip Pie Recipe
  6. Add the flour to the melted butter in the pan then gradually add the reserved fish liquid and ½ pint of milk. Bring to the boil stirring all the time until it thickens.
  7. Add the sauce to the casserole dish with everything else.

  10. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C, 400F Gas 6 for 30 minutes until the chips are browned.

I served the Fish and Chip Pie with peas and onion rings and it was very tasty. Definitely worth a try.
