Clean fish pie

We all need a little comfort

It has been a sh*t week, seriously, it has been one of those weeks when lots of things went wrong. That means lots of late nights at work, no family time and a lot of hugs needed. When the going gets tough, I want comfort food. 

Enter my comfort food 

Some foods make you feel better about everything; this dish definitely falls into that category. Fish pie is that great balance of warm and filling with the lightness of seafood. This week it is just what I need. 

My take on a classic 

As always I can’t leave a recipe alone, this is my take on the traditional Fish pie. I have swapped out the potato and cream for a lighter and healthier option of sweet potato and coconut milk. I made a double batch because this is a great one to keep in the freezer. It keeps well, so I have it to pull out for a quick and healthy dinner in the week. If you are making this in advance, make sure the fish you are using is fresh, not pre-frozen, none of us needs an upset stomach. 

Freezer meal

Hands up if you are busy. Who is way too tired to get in the kitchen to cook at the end of the day? Definitely not me.

My days are filled with meetings, to-do lists, emails and telling people what to do, by the time I finish work the last thing I want to do is get stuck into cooking a meal and then cleaning up afterwards. I want to work out and spend some time with Jaime. That is why freezer meals are my favourite solutions to the challenge of a busy life. A few hours on the weekend, and you find yourself with a stack of options for dinner that can be thawed and cooked for a healthy, delicious meal for the family.
