Clean Eating Fish Pie

photo-3

I know I haven’t done any Christmassy recipes yet (I promise they are to come!) but I am already planning the meals that will get me back on a healthy track when gloomy January comes around. This fish pie will help you overcome the post-Christmas slump when the sight of a mince pie or nan’s christmas cake is enough to make you heave in your sweatpants which are all that fit you right now (Mean Girls joke, sorry)  Keep this recipe on hand for a light, satisfying recipe that is filled with nutrient rich fish and vegetables.

Ingredients

Serves 2-3

350g of mixed fish (I like salmon, smoked haddock, cod and prawns) It can be fresh or frozen, just make sure to defrost it in time for cooking.

1 Cauliflower Head

1 Carrot, sliced into quarters

1 Leek, chopped finely

1 Celery Stick, sliced

Handful of Baby Spinach leaves, chopped.

200-250g Peas

1/2 Can of Light Coconut Milk

Grated Cheese for Topping – Kilmeaden Light is lovely.

If you wanted to add more protein to this dish you could also add some sliced hard-boiled egg; I have yet to try this myself but have heard it is a lovely addition.

What to do:  

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets and steam/boil the florets until tender.
  3. Place the cooked cauliflower into a bowl and season.
  4. Using a hand blender (wait until it has cooled!) blend the cauliflower until smooth and set aside.
  5. Heat a tablespoon of coconut oil (or some stock+water if you do not have coconut oil) in a large frying pan and add all of the veg.
  6. Cook the vegetables in the oil for about five mins and add the ½ can of coconut milk. Season.
  7. When the veg has softened slightly add in all of the fish.
  8. Cook for 10-15 mins of medium heat or until you are certain the fish is cooked through.
  9. Remove from heat and place all of the fish mixture into a pie dish.
  10. Add all of the cauliflower mixture to the top of the pie (as you would with potato mash in a regular fish pie) and smooth out, using a fork to create grooves that will brown easily.
  11. Place in the preheated oven and after 20mins remove and add the grated cheese to the top of the pie.
  12. Return to the oven and cook for a further 20 mins, until the top is golden.
  13. Your healthy fish pie is now ready to serve!
