This recipe is just so easy, and so delicious. You may have noticed a pattern in that respect! I'm all for good food, but just don't have the time, patience or inclination to spend hours sweating over an intricate recipe.

You will need: for 4 people
300-400 grams of assorted fish
A hard boiled egg
2 tablespoons low fat crème fraiche
Cheddar cheese
Spinach (frozen or fresh)
Teaspoon dijon mustard
2 potatoes (for mash topping)

When I was in Sainsburys I found this pre-prepared fish pie mix - chunks of salmon, pollock and haddock for just over £3. You can of course use what ever fish you have at home, but I think this is such a good time saver. I often add a handful of frozen prawns to the mix too.

Mix together your fish, two tablespoons of low fat crème fraiche, a teaspoon of mustard, two defrosted spinach balls (or a handful of fresh wilted spinach), a sliced hard boiled egg and a small sprinkling of grated cheese. I also added a small handful of frozen sweetcorn; you could use peas instead. 

Spread the mashed potatoes (peel and cube 2 potatoes, boil until soft, mash with a small amount of milk, butter, salt and pepper) over the top of the mixture and top with a sprinkling of grated cheese. 

Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes at 180C, until the top is golden and crispy and the filling is bubbling. 

Serve with steamed green veg and enjoy!
