Temptation #26: Fish Pie

Every woman has at least one recipe book. Aren’t you?
My habit is copying the recipes from the internet into the small cards and then transfer them into my book.
Then you’ll find my handbag is sometimes full with small cards. Hehe.

I just love flipping through the recipe books especially when it has so many colourful pictures of food. Ahaha.Β  I bet you would ask me whether all the recipes in the book had been tried by me? Well… not all of them. Only some, when “Jangkak I rajin”.

For example yesterday was my ‘rajin’ day. Skim through the fish pie recipe and found out it was a simple recipe. So I tried baking the fish pie. I only baked for 15 cups. Well, it doesn’t looks like in the picture because I only use a little portion of potatoes. Huhu. Luckily it taste good. Yum yum.

Here’s the recipe
Fish Pie
Ingredients:
500g potatoes, peeled and diced
4 tablespoon milk
75g butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, skinned, de-seeded and chopped
11/2 tablespoon plain flour
200ml milk (full cream)
225gm firm white fish fillets, skinned & cut into fairly large cubes
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1 bay leaf (optional)
50g grated cheddar cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preparation:
1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of lightly salted water until tender (about 15 minutes), then drain and mash with 4 tbsp of milk and half of the butter.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 180β—‹C.
3. Melt the remaining butter in a heavy based saucepan and cook the onion for 3 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minutes. Add the milk, bring to the boil. Stir in the fish, parsley and bay leaf and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the grated cheese until melted.
4. Divide the fish between 4 rameskin dishes and top with the mashed potato. Brush the potato with lightly beaten egg and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
