Meal Inspiration Monday- Haddock Fish Pie

Fish is not something which we have a lot in this house. However, we do actually have a lot of fish in the freezer so it did seem like a really good time to have more fish.  I know that a lot of people have fish for Good Friday now this Haddock Fish Pie is something which you could make this easter. This actually was actually such an easy meal to make there is not a lot of preparation. Bonus because it does mean that this can be consumed as one of your midweek meals instead of having the same old boring things. I did not even have to purchase many ingredients for this I managed to have most of them already. I found this recipe on Pinterest if this is not something you are using you sure need to be. A lot of my inspiration from there and have found myself trying a wider range of foods.  Anyway on to the Haddock Fish Pie recipe so you can make it for yourself.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 leek, sliced

30g flour

1. Preheat oven to 200c

2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the leeks and fry for 2-3 minutes, until soft.

3.  Add the flour, stir well and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4. Remove the pan from the heat and gradually stir in the milk.

5. Return to the heat and cook, stirring well, until the sauce has thickened. Simmer gently for five minutes.
