Mini Fisherman's Pies


I love mini servings of dishes and this was a star dish I made recently I enjoy a good fisherman's pie, you can add any seafood to it, and its a good little one pot meal. To be honest my 10 month old is a little on the small side and so was his big sister on the lowest percentile. So dishes like this made with fish (protein), milk, cheese, mash potatoes and vegetables are easy for him to eat and nutritious for an active growing boy. For an adult go a easy on the butter, and added cheese, use skim milk instead and less cheese. 



Ingredients:

to make 4 

  • 3 pieces of sole, one cup of shrimp salmon would also be great in this dish
  • 5 medium potatoes chopped 
  • 1 cup of mixed frozen vegetables
  • one tablespoon butter for mash and a dash of milk
  • one cup of milk for white sauce, 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • one tablespoon of plain flour to make the roux
  • 2 large slices of cheddar cheese and a little grated cheese for the top
Method:

  1. lightly poach the fish and shrimp in a little milk and butter until cooked 5-7 minutes 
  2. boil the potatoes 10 minutes or until soft and mash with butter and milk
  3. melt some butter add the flour and make a roux, slowly add the milk little by little and allow the sauce to thicken add cheese and parsley
  4. add the fish to the cheese sauce and add to the ramekins with steamed vegetables top with mashed potato and grated cheese
  5. bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes and serve 
  6. I added extra vegetables and my kids love broccoli great finger food for wee ones







Have a great start to the week everyone :-) 

Hugs

  2. I just love small servings. Pot pies in individual ramekins were my childhood favorite. I just couldn't coax my mom into making them often enough, so I had to learn to do it myself! These look wonderful!

  4. I think I'd like to try this more like a pot pie with a pre-made (supermarket) pie dough topping and just frozen peas for the veg. I'll let you know (and the world at large) how it turns out.

  15. Lovely recipe, Rebecca. I try to serve fish at least once a week and this will be a nice change from my regular recipes. Petrale sole is my favorite white fish so that will be my choice.

  21. I love mini pies too... but once I baked fish pie in my oblong baking dish... my daughter commented 'Mom... this is not posh!!'...
    I guess it looks more appetising to be served in ramekins than oblong baking dish :)
