Fish Pie

Fish pie is one of my favourite meals, and I always think its a pain to make, but it isn’t. This recipe is pretty quick and you will have yourself a fish pie in about 30 -45 minutes start to finish.

Using white fish is a great way to keep the calories low, also by using cornflour to thicken the sauce, rather than making a standard white sauce, you are saving on calories there too.  So you can have a great family meal, without breaking your calorie budget.
