Skinny Fish Pie

This is the skinny version of my fish pie. I have cooked it in the past with a cream and cheddar sauce poured over the fish before it goes in the oven but with it being January - and health kick time - I decided to just use lemon juice and seasoning on the fish.


1 x selection of fish. I used a ready chopped mix from Asda and a smoked peppered mackerel fillet
8 x small white potatoes for the mash topping
1 x handful spinach
1 x lemon
Butter, splash of milk and seasoning

Peel and chop the potatoes and boil in a saucepan. Meanwhile put the oven on a medium heat. Take a casserole dish and add the fish to the bottom in an even layer. Squeeze over the juice of half the lemon, add salt and pepper and gently move the fish around the bowl so it gets an even coverage. Then add a layer of spinach over the fish. Once the potatoes are cooked enough mash them mixing in butter to taste and a splash of milk. Spoon the mash over the spinach and place in the oven for approx 25 minutes. You should see the lemon juice sizzling when you spoon into the pie to serve it. Serve with peas, tenderstem broccoli or other seasonal greens.
