It was actually a play-play kind of recipe. I had been toying with the idea of making real pies with filo pastry. But I got lazy and did not thaw the frozen pastry.
So, I decided to spread mash potatoes made from Mr. Mash (can be found at better supermarkets like Cold Storage and Giants) as the top and sprinkle cheese on them.
It turns out yummylicious!
Here is my shortcut recipe. Adjust accordingly.
Recipe for baked fish and potatoes
1 piece of fish fillet about 200 gms, cut into cubes
1 large potatoes, cut into small cubes
10 quail eggs (or 2 chicken eggs), hard boiled
2 large onions
1 bottle of sour cream (or 200 ml of low fat milk)
some parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top
The shortcut I did was throwing the potatoes and onions into a pot of soup that I was cooking. When the potatoes are soften, I took them out. You can do the same, boil the potatoes while boiling the egg. Then skin the potatoes and cut into cubes. But do not boil your potatoes cube with the eggs in their shell. Not hygienic, right?
You can find canned potatoes too.
Oil a casserole with some olive oil.
Mix the fish, potatoes, onions and eggs with the sour cream. Flavour with whatever herbs you have, black pepper and salt.
Add the layer of fish/potatoes into the casserole. Line a few pieces of cheddar on top or sprinkle a mixture of mozzarella. Spread the mash potatoes to cover the cheese. Sprinkle with some parmesans or other pasta cheese.
Bake at 200 deg. celcius for about 30 minutes or until cheese turns golden brown.
Serve with some pasta would be nice.
I actually stole this idea from domesticgoddess‘s blog! She got the recipe from the Naked Chef.
