Easy Peasy Homemade Healthy Fish Pie
Fish pie is a classic recipe and in my house it was something I remember my mum making throughout my childhood! Traditionally, fish pie can be pretty unhealthy, full of high fat milk and flour, so I’ve created this Healthy Fish Pie recipe so that I can still enjoy an old favourite and stay healthy at the same time!
Using the #PowerOfFrozen
I decided to make this delicious Healthy Fish Pie when I was asked to discover the #PowerOfFrozen by Iceland Foods by trying their amazing range of frozen fish. In the past I’ve only ever cooked recipes like this using fish from the fridge section of the supermarket, but the more I thought about it the more using frozen fish made sense!
Eating frozen food can dramatically decrease your food waste which is something I’m always conscious of, particularly when it comes to saving money. For just £10 I got three bags of the frozen fish (cod, haddock and salmon) with four fillets in each so I had loads left over in the freezer after making this, then it was just the frozen prawns and a few additional ingredients from the fresh produce isles. Using the frozen fish also locks in flavour, improving the taste of your dish and keeps the fish tender when cooked, improving the texture.
What’s more, freezing the fish keeps it fresh and stops any nasty bacteria getting in and contaminating the food. It really makes total sense when you look at the safety and cost implications of constantly buying non-frozen fish! You can find out even more about the #PowerOfFrozen on Iceland’s website here. You can buy Iceland’s frozen fish both in store and online, in fact Iceland were named as the Best Online Supermarket by WhichUK, so stocking up your freezer to make tasty meals like this is a no-brainer.
Eating this Healthy Fish Pie on Slimming World
This Healthy Fish Pie is perfect on Slimming World for a number of different reasons, first and foremost though because it’s LESS THAN HALF A SYN PER PORTION! I repeat…LESS THAN HALF A SYN PER PORTION! The entire pie is just 2 syns using 1/3 of your Healthy Extra A per person with six servings, so fits perfectly into your healthy lifestyle.
Moreover, because I used frozen fish from Iceland, I also used the opportunity to stock up on some of their tasty Slimming World ready meals for those days where I just don’t have time to cook! When Iceland released their Slimming World range I thought I’d died and gone to heaven, because they taste great and have been a total lifesaver time and time again.
