Summary

Being pregnant and wanting to keep up a varied and healthy diet I realised that I hadn’t had any fish based dishes for a long time. So I dug out this little beauty of a recipe from the Slimming World “Food Glorious Food” book. There are rather a lot of steps to this recipe but it was well worth the hassle in the end! The only change to this recipe was adding a bit of grated cheese to the top which added a syn per person, you could use this as part of your HeA.

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 (Fan).
  2. Spray a frying pan with Frylight and fry the leeks over a medium heat for 15 minutes or until softened.
  3. Steam the potatoes for 20 minutes or until softened.
  4. Meanwhile, put the stock into a saucepan and bring to a simmer, add the fish pie mix and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer the fish to a large oven proof dish and add the parsley, mix gently.
  6. Strain the fish stock into a clean pan and place over a high heat.
  7. Mix the cornflour with 1 tbsp of cold water and add to the stock.
  8. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to low and cook for 2 minutes.
  9. Add the leeks and pour the mixture over the fish, gently mix everything together.
  10. Mix the quark in with your mash and season well.
  11. Spread the mash over the top of the fish gently with a fork.
  12. Sprinkle some grated cheese over the top and bake for 25 minutes.
  13. Serve with peas or your favourite veg!

Verdict

Very nice and lovely large portions! (Just how we like it) The beauty of this is that you can also fill the rest of your plate with lots of lovely greens. I’m not a fan of “fishy” fish but this was delicious and I would definitley make it again. It does require a lot of steps and takes around an hour to make but is well worth it for a bit of variety in your diet.
