Crunchy Fish Bake

We’ve been away for a few days and then had a weekend of birthdays which has meant being away from our usual way of eating. Today I had a chance to get back in the kitchen to cook…. I really fancied fish but after a few days away we had a rather bare fridge and veggie rack. BANG goes that idea, no potatoes. So I had to get creative. Finding some wheatfree breadcrumbs in the freezer I decided to remake fish pie. If I have ends of wheat free bread left  or make a rather crumbly loaf I tend to whizz it into breadcrumbs and freeze for a later date. Tonight was date night.

I used frozen fish as that’s all I had but you could use fresh.

Ingredients
  1. 4 fish fillets (I used salmon)
  2. 500ml milk
  3. 1 bay leaf
  4. 2 tbsp wheat free flour
  5. 1/2 cup water
  6. 8 - 10 medium mushrooms
  7. 2 peppers
  8. 2 handfuls of fresh or 4 clumps of frozen spinach
  9. Dash of lemon juice
  10. 1 tsp dijon mustard
  11. 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  12. grated nutmeg
  13. seasoning
  14. 3 cups of wheat free breadcrumbs
  15. 100g grated cheese
Instructions
  1. Place the fish fillets in a large, wide bottomed pan and half cover with milk. Add the bay leaf.
  2. Simmer until the fish is cooked (around 10 minutes but do check it as it depends on whether it is fresh or frozen).
  3. Remove the fish from the milk and flake it into a dish.
  4. Mix the flour with a 1/2 cup of water. Add to the milk and simmer gently whilst stirring, the sauce will thicken.
  5. Remove the bay leaf.
  6. Now add the chopped vegetables and spinach to the sauce.
  7. Add the lemon juice, mustard, herbs, nutmeg and season to taste.
  8. Stir the fish back in. Now place the mixture into an overproof dish.
  9. Top with the breadcrumbs and grated cheese.
  10. Cook in the oven at Gas Mark 4 for 30-40 minutes, until it is hot, the cheese is melted and the breadcrumbs toasted.
