Jamies Fish Pie My Way

By Chloe at ninegrandstudent.co.uk

I’ve taken this oozy, creamy, cheesy comfort food and given it my own twist. I’ve bulked it out with veg, cut down on the cheese, and made it that bit healthier. In all honesty my version isn’t better, but it’s definitely yummy and far better on the hips! The only thing I would say is ignore Jamie’s mash topping recipe – I found it far too dry. You want the mash relatively wet so it gives the sauce some liquid.


Serves 1

  • 1 frozen white fish fillet, defrosted(mine is basa, Sainsbury’s value, and very nice it is too!)
  • 1 small handful of cooked prawns
  • -2 cubes of frozen spinach
  • 1 stick of celery, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • ½ red chilli, finely chopped (taste it first – my half was extremely fiery!)
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of finely grated parmesan (and more to top, if you want)
  • A serving of mash


This is really easy! Once all the veg is finely chopped, slice the fish into chunks and toss it all together in a pie dish. Drizzle over the parmesan, lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, and toss again – you want to really combine everything. Season with pepper and salt.

Top the veg and fish mix with mash and extra cheese, if desired. Bake it at 180°C for 30-40 minutes, until cooked through and golden.Serve with plenty of green vegetables.

To me, this is the perfect Saturday night supper – easy to eat on your lap, hearty, comforting, but still healthy. As Jamie would say; perfection!
