Mini Fish Pie

Mini Fish Pie
This fish pie is so tasty and satisfying. Suitable as a baby food recipe for your weaning tot, it's perfect for a mid-week family meal and is a great way to get your kids to eat more fish.

In our house we love serving this up in mini ramekins dishes so the kids can have their own portions. Make this fish pie recipe and I guarantee your little ones will enjoy them!

700g fish, e.g.: haddock, hake, monkfish, trout, skinned and boned

625ml milk

½ onion

1 bay leaf

6 pepper corns

100g butter

50g plain flour

25g frozen sweetcorn

25g frozen peas

Salt and freshly-ground black pepper

For topping:

900g potatoes

25g cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat your oven to 200°C. 

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Put the potatoes into the pan, making sure there is enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil, simmer until tender, then mash. Set aside.

Place the milk, onion, bay leaf, and pepper corns in a large saucepan, and bring to the boil.

Reduce to simmer, add the fish, and cook gently for 4-5 minutes. Remove the fish from the pan, allow to cool a little, then flake into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then stir in the flour. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time until golden brown.

Gradually stir in the milk, onion, bay leaf and pepper corn mixture into the saucepan.

Let the mixture boil, and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer gently for 3-4 minutes until thickened.

Next, add the mixture to the fish, and season. 

Add in the sweetcorn and peas, then spoon the fish mixture into mini ramekin dishes. Spread the potato mash on top, then the cheese. 

Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
