Feel like I’m just churning out alllllll the comfort food for these cold days rolling in! Another pie recipe 😂🙌🏻.
You can use any fish you like for this, I used Smoked Basa, Basa and Salmon as Basa is a lot cheaper than other white fish and I got it in Aldi for anyone trying to find it.
I have also cheated a bit and included a recipe from BBC Good Food but this is exactly how I make my White Sauce the only difference is I use half milk/half water to reduce the milk content in the sauce and add a Fish Stock Cube for this particular recipe… so it’s half White Sauce half Fish Veloute but anyway you get the jist, you could use all Milk if you like!
For 4 individual Fish Pies or one big one, you will need:
- 6 Baking Potatoes
- 1 Salmon Fillet
- 1 Smoked Basa Fillet
- 1 Basa Fillet
- 1 Leek
- 1 Lemon
- White Sauce (I made this amount but didn’t need it all)
- Salt and Pepper
First I bake the Potatoes, then once cooked through, scoop out the cooked potatoe and mash it with an Egg and some seasoning. Pop it in a piping bag and keep it wrapped up so it’s still hot when piping it onto the Pie, it’s a lot easier to work with if it’s still hot!
