I am surprised that this Fish Pie recipe hasn’t turned up earlier on my blog. My whole family loves it and I have been making it for years as it is so delicious. It is a bit of a cheat’s fish pie since it uses garlic and herbs cream cheese as a base of the sauce so the flavour of the pie is sorted right from the start. This fish pie can be prepared a day earlier and just baked when needed. That is why it works really well when you know you will not have time to prepare dinner the next day but you still want to serve something really tasty really quickly. So as soon as you are in your kitchen after being away from home, you can put this dish in the cold oven, put the temperature up and bake it for 40 minutes. In the meantime, you can cook some vegetables to serve it with, lay the table and get everybody gathered at the table for a delicious meal. Really convenient when you are short of time.
Fish Pie with Prawns
A yummy pie that can be prepared a day ahead and enjoyed at the end of a busy day.
Cook the potatoes in salted water till they are soft.
Preheat a fan oven to 160 Celsius degrees.
When the potatoes are cooked, add butter and mash them well, check the seasoning.
Pour the milk in a frying pan, add the cream cheese and gently melt it on a medium heat.
Add the fish, raw prawns, salt and pepper, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes. If you are using cooked prawns.
Transfer the fish to an ovenproof dish and cover everything with the mashed potatoes; decorate, if you wish and put in the hot oven for approx. 30 minutes until the top is nice and golden. If you prepared the pie in advance and kept it in the fridge, put it in the cold oven and then turn the oven on. You will need an extra 10-15 minutes.
