Exceedingly Good Double Fish Pie Thermomix Recipe (Inspired by Mary Berry recipe)
Nothing screams comfort food quite like a delicious fish pie. So simple and so satisfying.
I have been making fish pie for the best part of 2 decades. My recipe has evolved over the years. I have to say that this particular one, inspired by the awesome Mary Berry (can you tell I am a big fan) is my best to date.
This particular fish pie Thermomix recipe into more of a dinner party kind of dish rather than a simple and quick family dinner. Serve it with a simple salad or fresh shelled peas. It will most certainly impress your guests.
Saying that I’ve made it for (and with) the kids too and they have loved it. However, if time is of the essence, check my other fish pie recipe . That one will be ready in 30 minutes.
This fish pie Thermomix recipe uses smoked haddock and salmon for extra flavours but feel free to substitute with less strong fish.
We love peas and leeks in this family but again feel free to substitute with other vegs like broccoli, spinach or kale. The possibilities are endless.
Whatever your choice of combination, mix the fish with a delicious and creamy parsley white sauce,
top it all with fluffy mustard mash and cheese.
One of the (many) reasons I love this dish so much – apart from the taste – is that you can make it completely ahead. I can be out all day or be spending time with the kids, knowing that I have a delicious pie ready in the oven.
How about cooking it in bulk and storing the leftovers in the freezer for an easy mid-week meal?
Enjoy! This dish is really rather special and worth the effort it takes to put it together, though with the help of Momo the Thermomix, it’s hardly any work (and no washing up obviously!).

Add the parsley to mixing bowl. Chop for 5 secdons / speed 7 . Set aside. Rinse and dry your mixing bowl. Put 100g cheddar cheese to the mixing bowl. Grate for 5 seconds / speed 5. Set aside.
Then make the mashed potatoes and steam the fish. Insert butterfly whisk. Add 1 kg potatoes, peeled and sliced, 350 grams milk and salt and pepper to taste to the mixing bowl. Place the fish (except prawns), 3 eggs and the sliced leeks in the Varoma dish. Slot Varoma dish into place. Cook for 30 minutes / Varoma / Reverse speed 1.
Transfer the fish and leeks to a oven-proof dish. Set the eggs aside.
Add 2 tbsp wholegrain mustard and 50g butter to the potatoes. Mash for 30 seconds / speed 3. Set aside. Give the mixing bowl a quick rinse.
At this stage, preheat your oven to 240C
Next make the sauce. Add 600g milk, 50g butter, 50g plain flour, salt & pepper to taste to the mixing bowl. Cook for 8 minutes / 90C / speed 4.
In the meantime, peel and chop the hard boiled eggs.
Add the fish, prawns, frozen peas, chopped parsley and leeks to the white sauce in the mixing bowl and adjust salt & pepper to taste. Cook for 2 minutes / 100C / Reverse speed low.
Pour the fish mixture back in the oven proof dish, add the chopped eggs. Leave to cool, ideally until it becomes completely cold and firm. Put it in the fridge to speed things up. Then spread the mash over and scatter with the grated cheese. Stand the dish in a large roasting tin (just in case it boils over).
Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until the top is golden and the sauce is bubbling at the edges.

On the subject of (moi)
At first I only spoke French. I was born in sunny France where I spent the first 20 years of my life. I moved to the UK in 1996 originally for 6 months, then life happened…
Met the man of my dreams 10 years ago… on the internet – yes, really!
Nowadays, I have lived 48.3% of my life (estimated), I write profusely on Twitter (fact), blog very infrequently, married said man. Also I don’t like chocolate and I can wriggle my ears. How about you? What’s your party trick?
Thanks for stopping by!
This sounds like such an easy and delicious meal. I love how simple it sounds to make, since fish intimidates me a bit.
