Ok, I know this is super-late, but I really wanted to share this Christmas tradition and it's taken me a while to get the post written :) Enjoy
Christmas eve means fish and seafood in my house. My mum usually makes a rice creation featuring prawns, mussels and squid. I like to make fish pie...
Start with hardboiled eggs.
Add a selection of fish, which have been gently poached in milk, and some king prawns. This time I went for salmon and cod; sometimes I use a bit of smoked haddock too.
Cover in a white sauce (made from the poaching liquid).
And then smother in mashed potato and some grated cheddar. I try to be moderate with my cheese usage... I usually get carried away...
Baking time! Note the baking tray underneath to catch any minor eruptions around the edge :)
Oh, it was totally yummy. Not the prettiest of meals, but well worth the effort. This version was one of my best and a good contrast with the massive traditional turkey roast that we enjoyed the next day!
