A take on Jamie's fantastic fish pie - serves 6
I used to love Jamie's fantastic fish pie before my LC days, and this weekend I made this LC version for some guests I had, they didn't even realise that it was low carb! I did not calculate numbers, did not have time to imput it all into ******, sorry! :blush:
1 large cauliflower, cut into pieces
2 large handfuls of fresh leaf spinach
1 onion, finely chopped
1 handful of fresh parsley, chopped
1 clove of garlic, pressed or very finely chopped
1 TB extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/4 cups of heavy cream
4 oz of grated mature cheddar cheese, and another 2 oz for later
juice of 1 lemon
1 heaped tsp English mustard or French will do
1/2 pound haddock, cod or other white fish, skinned, boned and sliced into strips
1/2 pound wild salmon fillet, skinned and sliced into strips
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Put the cauliflower into a pan of salted, boiling water.
Bring back to the boil for 10 minutes.
At the same time, hard boil the 2 eggs.
Steam the spinach in a colander over the pan that has the potatoes.
This will only take about a minute.
When the spinach is done, remove from the colander and squeeze out excess water.
after 10 minutes remove the eggs from pan.
Cool under cold water and peel and quarter them.
Put to one side.
Drain the cauliflower in the colander.
In a separate pan, slow-fry the onions in the olive oil for about 8-10 minutes.
Add the cream and bring just to a boil.
Remove from the heat and add the Cheddar cheese, lemon juice, garlic, parsley and mustard.
Put the spinach, fish and eggs in an decent sized casserole dish with a lid and mix together.
Pour over this mixture the creamy vegetable sauce.
Mash the cooked cauliflower - adding a bit of olive oil or butter, salt and pepper.
Spread the cauliflower on top of the fish, cover with leftover grated cheddar.
Place in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes taking the lid off for the last 10 minutes of cooking to brown the top.
Do as I say, not do as I do... DEFINITELY not do as I do!!!
