Easy fish pie

A simple fish pie recipe from BBC Good Food that’s quick and easy to prepare. Portion into ramekins and freeze for quick toddler meals or cook in a big dish for the perfect family supper


1kg potatoes, peeled and halved

knob of butter

splash of milk

25g butter

25g flour

4 spring onions, finely sliced

400ml milk

1 x pack fish pie mix (cod, salmon, smoked haddock etc, weight around 320g-400g depending on pack size)

1 tsp Dijon or English mustard

small bunch chives, finely snipped

handful frozen sweetcorn

handful frozen peas

handful grated cheddar


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180 fan/gas mark 6.

2. Put the potatoes in a saucepan and pour over enough water to cover them. Bring to the boil and then simmer until tender. When cooked, drain thoroughly and mash with a splash of milk and some butter. Season with ground black pepper.

3. Put the butter, flour and spring onions in another pan and heat gently until the butter has melted, stirring regularly. Cook for 1 -2 mins. Gradually whisk in the milk using a balloon whisk if you have one. Bring to the boil, stirring to avoid any lumps and sticking at the bottom of the pan. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes until thickened.

4. Take off the heat and stir in the cheese (if using), fish, mustard, chives, sweetcorn and peas. Spoon into an ovenproof dish or 6- 8 ramekins.

5. Spoon the potato on top and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

6. Pop in the oven for 20 - 25 mins or until golden and bubbling at the edges. Alternatively, cover and freeze the pie or mini pies for another time.
