JAMIE OLIVER INSPIRED FISH PIE
Updated: Aug 3
One of Jamie Oliver's Fish Pie recipes, amended by me, but most definitely inspired by him.
A few simple ingredients: tomatoes, carrots, celery, lemon juice, grated cheese, fish, potatoes and cauliflower and you have a stunning self-saucing fish pie dinner.
Gluten free, High Fibre, High Protein. Nutrient Dense
Filling for Fish Pie
I packet of mixed fish (about 600g)
100g prawns (can leave out)
2 sticks celery grated
2 carrots grated
150g cheddar cheese grated
Juice of one lemon
1-2 handfuls spinach
1-2 tbs fresh parsley (or 1 tbs dried)
2 large ripe tomatoes chopped or handful cherry tomatoes.
EDITED I often add a large mug of frozen peas for extra protein and fibre. Here's why
Topping for Fish Pie
½ cauliflower (or frozen is fine)
Broccoli or green beans
Wash but don’t peel the potatoes (retains all the nutrients and extra fibre).
Boil and when almost done add the cauliflower.
Drain, mash well, add the egg (more nutrients, fats and protein) and mash again.
Throw all the filling ingredients into the base of a pie dish.
Mix well with your hands.
Dot and spread mash evenly over the fish and veg.
Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until crispy and golden on top and serve with another veg or green salad.
Options for Fish Pie
Add some chopped sauteed leeks to the mash for extra flavour, nutrients and fibre.
Add some extra grated cheese to the mash for a nice cheesy crunchy finish
Swap out the potatoes for celeriac for a very low carb dish or use 1/3 potato, 1/3 celeriac and 1/3 cauliflower
Make double mash and use it as a topping for a cottage pie
Use whatever mix of fish you like. Include some shellfish if you like it.
