A delicious and filling fish pie.


  • 15ml oil
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 a medium onion, chopped
  • 30ml parsley, chopped
  • 125ml chicken stock
  • 200g cottage cheese
  • 30ml cornflour
  • 30ml cold water
  • 800g hake fillets, skinned & thawed, cut into chunks
  • 10ml lemon rind, finely grated
  • 125ml frozen peas
  • 5 medium sized potatoes
  • 100g cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg yolk


Step 1

Prepare mashed potato for the topping & set aside.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 190°C. Heat oil, salt garlic & onion a few minutes, & then add parsley. Stir in chicken stock & cottage cheese. Mix until well blended. Blend corn flour with cold water & stir into the stock mixture. Cook, stirring until thickened.

Step 3

Add fish into the sauce along with the lemon rind & peas. Check seasoning & turn the mixture into a 1.5l baking dish. Spoon mash over the fish to cover completely. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 25- 30mins until heated through & golden.

Step 4

Adult Variation: For slightly more flavour add 20ml chopped dill or fennel leaves along with the parsley. For a really special dish, substitute 150g of the hake with 150g peeled shrimp.
