  • 60g butter

  • 300ml milk

  • 50g flour

  • 250g peas (frozen or fresh)

  • 150ml cider

  • 400 gs fresh white fish cut into chunks

  • Some pasta or potatoes (to serve)


<ol> <li>Divide the fish into bite size chunks, looking out for bones.</li> <li>For the sauce: put butter in pan and melt. Add flour and let it seethe for 2 minutes (stirring so the butter doesn't burn).</li> <li>Slowly and off the heat initially, add the cider. When this is mixed in, return to the heat and add 150ml of the milk.</li> <li>Stir until this has thickened when boiling/nearly boiling. Remove from heat, or keep on very low heat and stir occasionally.</li> <li>Put some butter and a tiny bit of oil in the frying pan, add the peas (you can cook them prior to this if you're in a rush).</li> <li>When the peas are cooked add chunks of white fish to the pan and stir for about 2 minutes until the fish looks cooked.(You can use cod, haddock, trout, anything really, but not smoked fish!)</li> <li>Now, the technical bit - mix it all together and serve.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>This is an easy recipe - look out for bones in the fish though when you're chunking it.</p> <p>Add more or less peas to taste, or sweetcorn, green beans, etc.</p> <p>You can add creme fraiche and or a little mustard to the sauce once it has thickened.</p>

    It is an easy way to present fish in a manner appealing to my kids...serve with potatoes, or pasta, or even...dare i say it in this day and age..chips! (disapproving silence)
