This is last night's fishy medley which I made myself. I tend to pounce on those yellow stickered packs in the chill cabinet of the supermarket and then freeze them until they're needed. I cut up fillets of salmon, cod and mackerel for yesterday's offering and added in healthy handfuls of peas and prawns.
I covered this in a white sauce. Sorry I can't give proportions of ingredients as I do this by eye. A good dollop of butter and a similar amount of flour goes in a saucepan and forms a great big lump. It looks like you'll never get rid of the bloody thing. But little by little, with stirring and the addition of milk a smooth sauce forms. Voila! as Raymond Blanc would say. Just a little bit of seasoning and its ready to be mixed into the fish.
Now all that's left to be done is to top it with buttery mashed potatoes. Oh! Start cooking those first or you'll have a long wait before eating. The finishing touch is enough grated vintage cheddar to keep a whole colony of mice very happy for a long time. Purists don't like the mixture of cheese and fish. Bollocks to them I say! Then the pie goes into the oven at about 200 degrees for about half an hour until the cheese is golden and crispy. Mmmmm!
There was enough here for about four hungry folks so I've frozen half the pie for Ron. That's slang for later around here and not some random Brixham bloke who's coming to tea. This beastie was so good that we're not about to share it with anyone.
