Fish Pie

Hi there

It's a little late but I'm here with the recipe for the fish pie I made this evening.  I'm loving the idea of comfort food right now - it must be the weather!  This recipe is one I made up myself to fit the Slimming World 'food optimising' plan.  A word of warning though make sure the dish you use is big enough.  Mine spilled over the top, thank goodness I put a baking sheet underneath it!

Fish Pie

Serves 4

2.5 Syns & a Healthy Extra A per Portion

1 x pack fish pie mix containing salmon, smoked and white fish (I used Tesco)
200g raw king prawns (without shells)
150g frozen spinach
2 x pack Schwartz white sauce mix
600ml 1% fat milk
80g reduced fat cheddar cheese, grated
Large pinch of saffron
1.3 kg potatoes (suitable for mashing), peeled and cut into chunks
Salt & freshly ground black pepper

Place the fish and prawns on a microwavable plate and cover with cling film.  Cut a couple of small vents into the cling film then microwave on full power for 3-4 mins until fish and prawns are just cooked.  Set aside.  

Meanwhile boil the spinach in lightly salted water for 5-6 mins then drain thoroughly, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.  In another pan make up the white sauce with the milk and cook according to the packet instructions.  Off the heat add the saffron and all but a small handful of the cheese as well as seasoning.  Place the fish, prawns and spinach in a large ovenproof dish then pour over the sauce.  

Meanwile boil the potatoes in salted water until tender then drain and mash really well ( I didn't add any butter or milk to them).  Place on top of the fish mixture then rough up with a fork so it will go crispy in the oven.  Sprinkle over the remaining cheese then bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 30-40 minutes until the top is golden brown and everything is cooked through.

Serve with as much veggies as you like.

I'm off to bed now as I am back to work in the morning :(

Take care,
Shona xx
