I am doing a variation on Jamie Oliver's MOF fish pie but might need a few more ingredients to make it go further and jazz it up a bit.

Spill. grin

cloves, pinch cinamon and peppercorns. But then I wouldn't do Jamies pie. It needs to be poached in the milk, tis all wrong!

I don't know JO's recipe but I always add prawns, handful of frozen peas and chopped boiled egg.
[Make sure you use the stock from cooking the fish to make the sauce - best flavour]

chopped egg, spinach and some chopped up gherkins.

yappybluedog Mon 20-Jul-09 16:39:17

that JO recipe is very good and no bloody sauce to make

ChopsTheDuck Mon 20-Jul-09 16:44:07

but the sauce is the best bit!

I used ot make a yummy parsely sauce and put some in the mash as well but having made JO's fish pie I enjoy how quick it is to put together and will alternate between fish pie with sauce and without.

I am using undyed smoked haddock and large prawns for the fish today.

Roast sweet potato or butternut squash. Yum.

I love sweet potato but the philistine I live with, doesn't. I thought he was going to faint the day he took a big mouthful thinking it was just a regular potato. grin

what about no fish? grin

I use coconut milk (trussst in me, just in me, really, it's delicious) instead of sauce

in which I poach smoked haddock, plus white fish and scallops

a little julienne carrot

How you doing, chuck?

gruyere cheese. And capers.

Horton Mon 20-Jul-09 17:38:24

Capers and hardboiled eggs are my favourite additions. I totally agree that you need to poach the fish in the milk.

thighsmadeofcheddar Mon 20-Jul-09 17:39:53

Yes fish in milk.
I do a cheesy/mustard/chive mash for the top.

Rather than a white or cheese sauce, I reduce a can of lobster bisque if I'm being posh that day.

Other nice one is a layer spinach at the bottom, normal sauce/fish combo then mozzarella before the mash. Very low fat wink
