Fish Pie ~ with a difference!


Fish Pie with Sweet Potato

The difference being sweet potato!

Whilst flicking through my newest cookery book, Jo Pratts 'In the Mood for Food', I came across this fish pie - with a grated sweet potato and cheese topping. This was a revelation, it was gorgeous, creamy, smokey and rich (cash wise too as it contains Cod, Tiger Prawns and Smoked Salmon), perfect food for a very cold day.

Ingredients:
50g Butter
Bunch Spring Onions, sliced
50g Flour
400 ml Milk
500g Cod, chopped into bite size pieces
200g Cooked Tiger Prawns
150g Smoked Salmon, sliced
Handful of chopped Parsley
1 Lemon zested
Topping:
700g Sweet Potatoes, peeled and grated
40g Butter
50g Cheddar Cheese, grated

Method: preheat oven to 200c
Step 1: To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan and fry the spring onions for a few minutes until soft. Add the flour and fry for 1 minute.
Step 2: Gradually add the milk and allow sauce to thicken, add all the fish, parsley and lemon and cook for 3-4 minutes, until cod starts flaking.
Step 3: Pour into ovenproof pie dish and allow to cool
Step 4:To make topping, fry the grated sweet potato in the butter and let it soften for 5 minutes, spoon on top of fish and sprinkle over cheddar
Step 5: Bake for 30-40 minutes until golden and bubbling

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.


TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
