LEFTOVER roast fish works perfectly in this crowd-pleasing family pie. Here we’ve used salmon, but you could use any leftover fish – just check for bones beforehand.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 44-55 minutes

Serves: 4

Nutrition: Per serving: 519 cals, 27.9g fat, 10.6g saturates, 10.3g sugars, 1.32g salt

You will need:

100g young leaf spinach

40g unsalted butter

1 onion, finely chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

40g plain flourap

568ml semi skimmed milk

4 hardboiled eggs, peeled and cut into quarters

240g leftover roast salmon, cut into bite-size chunks

40g capers, drained and roughly chopped

Handful of fresh dill, chopped

400g Maris Piper potatoes, sliced into thin rounds, using a mandoline if you have one

1 tbsp olive oil


1 Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6.

2 In a large pan over a medium heat, wilt the spinach with a little water. Drain and squeeze out any excess water. Set aside.

3 In another large pan, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook for five minutes, adding the garlic for the last minute. Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes.

4. Remove from the heat and slowly whisk in the milk. When all the milk has been added, return the pan to the heat. Simmer for five minutes, stirring, until thickened. Season.

5 Gently stir in the eggs, salmon, capers, cooked spinach and dill.

6. Tip into a 1.5-litre pie dish. Arrange the potatoes over the top, and brush all over with the oil.

7. Bake for 30-40 minutes until the potato top is crisp and golden.


Make this even easier to prepare by topping with a couple of packs of ready-made mashed potato before putting into the oven.
