Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan large enough to accommodate the haddock fillet. Add the onion, bay leaf, chilli and garlic.  Cook for a couple of minutes.
  2. Add the spices and salt and cook for several minutes more before adding the coconut milk, stock, mustard  and potatoes. Bring to boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through.
  3. Add the haddock and push beneath the surface of the liquid. It should take about 5 minutes to cook. When it’s ready the flesh will darken and it will be easy to push into large flakes with a wooden spoon.
  4. Stir through the peas to heat, and serve.

Tip:

If preferred, use leftover, cooked potatoes.

“This is the good King Edward’s twist on the Greek filo pastry pie Spanakopita. I love a playful recipe, my pie is nestled into the potato and I serve it in a pie dish but there is no pastry in sight. Bags of spinach vary greatly in size so any that you have leftover you could serve as a side salad or wilt with some garlic to serve with the pies.”
