There are lots of variations on this popular dish – this version uses sliced potatoes, rather than mash, which go all golden and crispy when the pie is baked.

Ingredients

Potato(es), Raw

500 g, (2 x 250g)

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Onion(s)

1 medium, thinly sliced

Plain White Flour

3 tablespoons, level

Semi Skimmed Milk

300 ml

Fish Pie Mix

600 g

Peas, fresh or frozen

200 g, frozen

Low Fat Spread

15 g, melted

Broccoli, raw

200 g, tenderstem

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the whole potatoes. Cook for 3-4 minutes until you can just prick them with a fork – they don’t need to be cooked through. Drain and allow to cool, then slice into 3-4mm rounds and set aside.
  2. Mist a pan with cooking spray and put over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Add the flour, stir well and cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat and gradually add the milk. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the fish pie mix and the peas. Season to taste, then pour into a 2-litre oval pie dish. Top with the sliced potatoes, brush with the melted spread and season with freshly ground black pepper.
  5. Put the dish on a baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes until the potatoes are golden and the fish is cooked through.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 3-4 minutes until tender. Drain and serve with the fish pie

Notes

The fish pie can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
