family fish pie

family fish pie

Aside from the perfect all time favourite roast chicken, fish pie is a close second comfort food request in our house. I opt for a mix of white and sweet potato for the topping and I do not use or add white sauce to the fish. It works brilliantly as a made ahead meal ready to heat up the next day with a sprinkle of grated parmesan on top!

400g seafood mix or raw king prawns
500g salmon fillets, diced
2 small leeks, sliced

the health boost tip

The benefits of eating enough portions of fish each week are making headlines constantly, but some families find it difficult due to time constraints or lack of inspiration. Moving away from the battered or breaded fish is really refreshing and a great winter warmer. This fish pie can also be made ahead in larger quantities, kept in the fridge for a few days or frozen for the next hectic week or a surprise visit from guests!

This fish pie offers a perfect balance of good carbohydrates, protein and essential omega-3 fatty acids important for both body and brain health.
