Debbie, our wonderful 'chef to ostomates' is back today with a delicious warming Fish Pie recipe, perfect for cold winter nights. All of Debbie’s recipes are, of course, designed with Ostomates in mind and in case you’ve missed any of her recipes to date, you can find them all in our Ileostomy, colostomy and stoma support group here. So why not put an apron on and get cooking!
This Fish Pie is another family favourite and is one that I have used many times over the last year as it’s a great comfort food. Omit the onions if they upset your stomach. I never use cream, always milk and this has the added benefit that it freezes well. I often divide this into three portions and freeze two in foil containers. I usually defrost them before reheating for 30 minutes but you can reheat from frozen, just add 10 minutes. You can use any fish you like, I usually buy a ‘fish pie mix’ from the fishmonger. If you don’t like prawns, just add more fish.
Serves 6, easily halved
900g salmon & cod fillet (or fish pie mix)
1 bay leaf
25g fresh dill
1 large onion, chopped (omit if preferred)
50g plain flour
284 carton double cream (or milk if you prefer)
175g large cooked prawns, defrosted if frozen
140g mature cheddar cheese, grated
Salt & pepper
