    1 hour

    Fish pie is often thought of as a peasant dish but this gourmet version uses barramundi and subtle cream and cheese flavours; making a great entree.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1.5kg potatoes, peeled and diced
    • 600g Barramundi fillets
    • 300ml milk
    • 1 bunch spring onions, finely sliced
    • 200g creme fraiche or sour cream
    • 100g Swiss cheese, finely grated
    • salt and pepper, to taste

    Preparation:45min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Preheat oven to 220 deg C. Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of salted water until tender; 10 to 15 minutes.
    2. Place the barramundi in a shallow pan then pour over the milk and sprinkle over the spring onions. Cover, bring to a simmer for 5 to 8 minutes until the fish is cooked and flakes easily.
    3. Lift out the poached barramundi fillet. Pour the warm milk and spring onions into a measuring jug; there should be about 200ml.
    4. Drain the potatoes well and mash until smooth. Mix in the reserved warm milk and spring onion followed by the creme fraiche. Season with a little salt and pepper.
    5. Gently fold in the flaked fish and half the cheese. Spoon the mixture into a large shallow heatproof dish and sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden on the surface.

    Used different ingredients. I substituted cheddar cheese. I also added a can of drained peas before folding in the fish. Served with southern corn cakes, this was just about perfect!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Yum! Great comfort food, and it's like the fish pie my English grandmother makes. I used cheddar instead of Swiss cheese.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Easy to make and satisfying meal which is healthier than the usual fish pie. I made half the recipe using smoked haddock, normal onions and mature cheddar cheese. Also added some defrosted frozen peas and spinach, and mushrooms with the milk, fish and onions to make it a full meal to eat at work. Didn't add the creme freche/fromage frais as it would have been too wet(I didn't cook it in the oven): I've frozen the portions and will be reheating it at work in the microwave. Simple and yummy.  -  03 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
