Salmon, Cod and Chorizo Pie with a Celeriac Mash Topping

I thought I was going to have to wait until Autumn came around to share this recipe with you, but as today is wet, windy and dreary outside I believe some of you will be grateful for a comforting and warming dish that requires plenty of oven usage. That being said, this potato pie is as summery as a potatoes pies go; with plenty of fresh fish and Mediterranean flavours from the chorizo, I take back my comment and say that this dish is suitable to all weather outcomes – not just us rubbish weather British folk!

Serves 4

  • ½ celeriac – peeled and sliced
  • ½ small swede – peeled and sliced
  • 1 large potato – peeled and sliced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper

For the fish and chorizo filling

  • 1 cod (or another suitable white fish) – cut into inch chunks
  • 1 fillet salmon – cut into inch chunks
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 150g cauliflower
  • Semi-skimmed milk
  • 4 eggs – boiled, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 125g chorizo – roughly chopped
  • 1 red onion – roughly chopped
  • 2 heap dsp corn flour – made into a paste with a splash of water
  • Pinch saffron
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • Cheddar cheese – for crispy baking purposes

Preheat the oven to 180’C

Pre-heat a pan of boiling salty water and cook the potatoes, celeriac and swede for 20 minutes, until soft

In an oven proof dish (preferable the one you bill bake your pie in), lay out the fish and the cauliflower

Pour in the milk so that it just covers the contents, add the bay leaves and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

While the fish is cooking heat a non-stick saucepan to a medium – high temperature.

Fry the chorizo until the oil has seeped out from it and then add the onion to the pan.

Fry off for a few minutes to soften the onion.

Once the fish has cooked, pour the milk into the saucepan with the chorizo in and leave the fish and cauliflower in the baking dish – discard the bay leaves

Once the milk is steaming stir in the flour paste and continue to stir until the sauce has thickened.

Stir in the tomato puree and a pinch of saffron, and season to taste.

Add the chopped eggs to the baking dish and pour in the sauce.

Give the mixture a good stir.

Once your mash vegetables are cooked, stain away the water and return to a low head to get rid of any excess water.

Mash the veg with the butter and some salt and pepper until smooth.

Top the pie with the mash (either by spreading or piping) and then sprinkle over the grated cheese.

Bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the mash is lovely and crispy.
