Fish in Parsley Sauce

This is really a deconstructed Fish Pie without the topping. I had intended on using white fish but found a packet of fish pie mix and a bunch of parsley in the reduced section of the supermarket and thought " why not use that instead" I was not disappointed as it was delicious. I love how the rich colours of the fish stand out against the creaminess of the sauce and then adding the extra green veg deepens the colour of it. This is easily adapted to suit you and your families tastes by using a different fish, adding some prawns or just a plain white sauce rather than the parsley sauce. You could also add some cream for a touch of luxury. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback. E x
