Easy fish pie makes for an excellent healthy weekday family dinner for 4. On the table in just one hour. It’s packed full of protein and each tasty serving comes in at less than 400 calories!
Folks, I know that fish isn’t always cheap. But this delicious easy fish pie is a great way of making fish go a bit further!
It’s also perfect if you’re trying to get your kids to like fish.
The fish is hidden under the mash and there’s a portion of peas with each serving too!
They’ll never know what you’ve got lurking beneath that mash!
For variety you could try substituting different types of fish, all of which are good sources of vitamins A and D, or maybe even try prawns too.
You could also change the mash topping to my other favourite mash toping, caper mash!
So, that’s why it’s easy fish pie.
Because it’s quick and easy to make and you can swap the fish ingredients around to suite your taste and what’s available.
It’s a great dish to serve for lunch or dinner!
What Do You Serve With Fish Pie?
- There’s already peas is the fish pie but extra green veggies such as broccoli or green beans go great.
- Sweetcorn is also an excellent side which kids love.
- How about some mange tout?
- Or if you’re pushed for time then quickly carve up some batton carrots?
