Fish pie (Slimming World friendly)
Fish pie can be a boring dish at times but this version has a bit more to it with the addition of salmon and prawns and smoked fish. Its quite quick and easy to make . I often buy fish that is on special offer and keep it in the freezer so can make it a standby dinner if I want to. The white sauce and the mash are made the slimming world friendly way so per portion it works out quite low in syns.
1- 1 1/2lb mixed fish (I use a mixture of salmon, white fish and smoked fish)
4 hardboiled eggs (cut in quarters)
1 pint skimmed milk
2 tbsps cornfloue
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
4-6 large potatoes (peeled and cut into pieces)
1/2 tub quark (125g)
2 egg yolks
low calorie spray oil.
Put the fish, prawns and hardboiled eggs in a large ovenproof dish, Place the skimmed milk, salt, pepper and cornflour in a saucepan and bring to a boil (whisking all the time) and simmer for about 4 minutes until sauce is thick and shiny , keep whisking all the time. Taste to see if it needs any more seasoning and then pour over the fish mixture.
In a large saucepan put the potatoes in salted water and bring to the boil until potatoes are tender. Drain, then mash with the quark and egg yolks until smooth then season with salt and pepper to taste.
Spread the mash over the fish and sauce to make the mashed potato topping . Spray the top with a little spray oil and bake at gas 6/ 200/400 until top of the pie is browned.
Serve with loads of veg . This is a large dish and serves 6 and the syns are 3 per portion.
