Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
I made a Jamie Oliver lockdown fish pie last night. The result was far less than the sum of its parts, though it must have been good for us. He mashed peas and lemon zest in with the potato topping, which added nothing, and it has carrot, milk, onion, cheese, spinach, flour, mustard and lemon juice in the sauce. Everything was hiding everything else. He uses white fish and salmon, no smoked fish, which were poached in advance in the milk, which I thought was a mistake, as the flaked fish in the finished dish, which had to be baked in a hot oven for over half an hour, was definitely overcooked. And the whole thing was a real faff to put together. Oh well. I'll stick with what I know.
