Easy-peasy Avenue Fish Pie!

Ingredients:

500g/1lb undyed smoked  haddock
500ml milk
3 hard-boiled eggs (optional)
Finely chopped parsley (optional)
50g/2oz butter
50g/2oz plain flour
10 large potatoes, mashed

Method:

Pre-heat oven to 200C.

To poach fish in an oven, place the fish in an ovenproof dish, pour over the milk and cover with foil.  Cook in the preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes or until the fish is soft.

To poach fish in a saucepan,  place the milk in a large pan, bring up to simmering point and turn off.  Add the fish to the milk and cover with a lid for 5 minutes.

Once cooked, seive the milk into a jug and flake the fish onto a plate, removing any bones and skin.

Make a white sauce using the butter, flour and fish milk. Adjust the consistency of the sauce – it should be slightly thicker than double pouring cream.

Season well with salt and pepper, and add chopped parsley.

Cut each of the hard-boiled eggs into 8.

Carefully stir the fish into the sauce with a metal spoon and then add the eggs, dotting them around.

Put into an ovenproof dish and top with the mashed potatoes, it is easier to let the mixture cool before adding the potato.

Cook in a pre-heated oven for approximately 25 minutes, until golden

…and enjoy your gorgeously home-baked pie on National Pie Day. 🐟
