A Simple Dairy Free Fish Pie topped with Delicious Mashed White and Sweet Potato for a comforting family meal.
There is something quite comforting about a fish pie - delicately poached fish in a creamy white sauce, something that can be hard to achieve if you are dairy free and with loads of dairy free readers, I figured I'd create a delicious Dairy Free Fish Pie that everyone can enjoy.
Also with Slimming World, keeping it as low syn as possible was also important and so for that creamy feel to this Dairy Free fish pie, I opted for light coconut milk. First poaching the fish in some stock, and the combining the flavoured stock with the coconut milk and some starch for a silky creamy sauce.
Traditional Fish Pie is topped with regular creamy mashed potatoes, made with lashings of butter and cream or milk. I went for a mixture of sweet and white potato. Sweet Potato is perfect for a pie topping, as it really doesn't need anything other than seasoning mixed in.
