Ingredients:

FISH FILO PIE

  • 300g potatoes, scrubbed and diced 1cm *
  • ½ brown onion, finely diced *
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced *
  • 1 carrot, finely diced
  • 500g fish fillets, diced 2cm
  • 5–6 sheets filo pastry
  • 1 egg, whisked

PARSLEY SAUCE

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley leaves and stalks
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika

STEAMED GREENS

  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 courgette or 100g green beans

Method:

Preheat oven to 200°C. Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil. Set aside an oven dish (measuring about 28 x 21cm).

1 Cook potatoes in pot of boiling water for about 8 minutes, until just tender. Drain and set aside. Refill pot of water and bring to a boil again. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium-high heat. Cook onion, celery and carrot for about 7 minutes, until tender. Set aside.

2 While vegetables are cooking, melt butter in a medium pot on medium heat. Add flour and whisk for about 1 minute, until mixture turns a sandy colour. Add milk, whisking continuously for 2–3 minutes, until sauce is smooth and thick. Remove from heat.

3 Stir parsley, salt, pepper and paprika through sauce. Add cooked vegetables and potatoes to parsley sauce and stir. Gently fold in fish, then pour fish mix into oven dish.

4 Lay pastry on a clean, flat surface and very lightly brush top sheet of pastry with whisked egg. Gently scrunch up 1 sheet at a time to form a loose nest and place on top of fish mixture. Repeat this process about 6 times, until you have covered the top of pie.

5 Bake pie for 20–25 minutes, until pastry is golden. Trim ends off asparagus and green beans (if using) and dice courgette 1cm. When pie has about 5 minutes cook time remaining, cook asparagus and beans (if using) in pot of boiling water for 2 minutes. Add courgette and cook a further 1 minute, until both are bright green and tender. Drain

To serve, Cut fish filo pie with a sharp knife and divide between plates. Serve steamed greens on the side.

Serves 4-5
