|Fish Pie Made With Quinoa Flour|
The fish pie got the thumbs up yesterday. The idea was simple: I used quinoa flour instead of wheat flour, and made a simple, basic fish pie.
So here's the recipe measured very roughly (it was an experiment):
50grams of white fish
50grams of uncooked broccoli
½ pint of milk
1 small onion - finely diced
1 tablespoon of quinoa flour
|Thick bechamel sauce|
2 medium sized potatoes boiled and mashed
Lightly poach the fish in half of the milk, along with the onion, using the lowest heat on the hob.
Chop the broccoli into ¾" florets.
When the fish flakes easily under a little pressure from a fork or spoon, it's cooked. Take it out of the pan and lay it aside. Use the milk still in the pan as stock for the white sauce - leave the diced onion in too.
I use a Liverpool roux. I think it's healthier than a proper roux because you're not using fat.
|Sauce Covering White Fish and Broccoli|
Chop or flake the fish into a pie dish. Add the uncooked broccoli on top of that. Pour the white sauce over and cover it all with the mashed potatoes. You can top that with a little grated cheese.
