Simple and quick recipe for a tasty fish pie.
This recipe has been passed on to me by an Italian friend I met in Australia and I have to thank her so much as it make it possible for my children and my husband to enjoy eating some fish.
For your besciamella sauce:
salt, pepper, nutmeg ground
For the fish pie:
600gr. fish fillets
First peel your potatoes and boil them.
While your potatoes are boiling, start cooking your fish.
After a few minutes the milk will start boiling, take your fish and lay it on a plate. Recycle your milk, putting it in a glass for a little while, you’ll need it later for your besciamella sauce.
When you potatoes are ready you can start mashing them so that you’re going to have your mashed potatoes ready for the fish pie.
Directions for the besciamella sauce:
add your 500ml milk and continue stirring until boiling.
Now your besciamella sauce is ready. You’ve got your fish ready and your mashed potatoes are ready too.
You now need an oven tray where to create all the layers of your fish pie.
Continue by making another layer of besciamella sauce, fish and mashed potatoes.
It’s now ready to be put in the oven for about 20 min. at 180°C.
Enjoy it with some boiled basmati rice or on its own 🙂
