Another quick and easy family recipe, for when time is minimal, but you (and your family!) still want a warming, tasty meal on the table.
This recipe is a real keeper, which I’ve made time and time again. It’s from an old magazine cutting which I saved over the years, a BBC Good Food magazine recipe. I have tampered with the recipe and made it my own.
We really enjoy it. Yes there are a few short cuts here, but I feel that it still counts as a ‘real’ recipe, not an assembly job.
Cheat’s Fish Pie
Inspired by a recipe in BBC Good Food Magazine. November 2001.
550g skinless, boneless cod chunks
2 small fillets salmon, cut into cubes (skinless and boneless)

cup of frozen peas, thawed out
500g tub fresh Cheese sauce (from supermarket chiller cabinet)
400g packet long-life potato saute or rosti
large knob of butter.
1. Preheat oven to 180deg C (Fan oven otherwise increase by 20 degrees)
2. Place cod, salmon and prawns in an oven-proof dish, add peas and cheese sauce and stir well.
3. Break up potato saute/rosti well and scatter over filling, top with butter cubes.
4. Bake for 30-40 mins until top is nicely browned and golden.
and why not… looks bloody good!
We all need shortcut recipes…especially when they are this delicious!

Anna I love fish pie and this look amazing! gloria
I've never had a fish pie before. It sounds delicious and have to try it one of these day.
This looks like such a comforting dish, and super-quick judging from your recipe! I love anything that is coated in a cheese sauce, and I particularly love fish pies. Given the recent weather, I think a fish pie will be on the menu soon for us 🙂
Well I've got to admit that I'm deeply fond of shortcuts. It looks really tasty to me.
That looks lovely, as a busy working mum I can't have enough shortcut recipes 🙂 xx
