Seafood and Tenderstem Pie
This creamy, comforting seafood pie is wonderfully versatile, as it’s simple enough to serve as a family supper or Sunday lunch, yet impressive enough to serve as a dinner party main course.
Other fish such as cod, haddock (smoked or unsmoked) or other white fish can be used in addition too or instead of the salmon. You could even add some smoked salmon to the filling.
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
Cooking time: up to 45 minutes
For the filling:
1 medium onion, chopped
150ml white wine
300ml semi skimmed milk
200g Tenderstem broccoli
500g skinless salmon fillet cut into approx. 3cm cubes
200g raw, peeled tiger prawns
3 eggs, hard boiled and chopped
1 tbsp chopped dill or parsley
For the mashed potato topping:
4 tbsp semi skimmed milk
25g cheddar, grated
What to do:
Pre-heat the oven to 200°c, 180°c for a fan oven or gas mark 6
Melt the butter in a large saucepan and gently sauté the onion with the bay leaf until the onion is softened but not coloured. Stir in the flour for about 30 seconds before gradually adding the wine, stirring to prevent any floury lumps, before doing the same with the milk. Bring to a simmer and cook for a few minutes until you have a thick sauce.
Cut the Tenderstem into bite-size pieces and stir into the sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the salmon and prawns, then return to the simmer. Cook for a few minutes, until the prawns are pink, before adding the eggs, dill or parsley, salt and pepper. Spoon into a large ovenproof dish and keep to one side.
To make the topping, boil the potatoes in lightly salted water until tender.
Drain well and then mash with the milk and butter.
Spread the mash over the pie filling. Sit on a baking tray and scatter the cheese over the top. Place in the pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes until the topping is golden and the filling is bubbling at the edges.
If you are making the pie in advance and storing in the fridge, allow a further 10 minutes cooking time.
