SWEET POTATO FISH PIE WITH SALMON

Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 700g Norwegian salmon fillet
  • 300 cooked Prawns
  • 600ml Milk, semi skimmed
  • 1 Onion
  • 75g Butter, unsalted
  • 50g Plain flour
  • A small bunch flat leaf parsley
  • 1.4kg Sweet potatoes
  • 50g Butter, unsalted
  • 100g Cheddar cheese, grated

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pierce the potatoes all over with a fork and lay on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven until tender. This will take about 35-45 minutes depending on the size of your potatoes.
  2. Whilst the potatoes are cooking, prepare the filling. Add the fish to a pan that will fit the fillets in a single layer and scatter over the onion. Pour over the milk, dot the surface with one third of the butter. Bring up to a steady simmer, cover with a lid or tight fitting piece of foil and poach until the fish is cooked all the way through. Using a slotted spoon, remove the cooked fish to a plate and allow to cool a little. When it is cool enough to handle, flake with a fork, discarding the skin and any little bones you find lurking. Add the flaked fish to a baking dish and evenly scatter over the prawns.
  3. In a clean saucepan melt the remaining two thirds of the butter, then stir through the flour to form a roux. Allow to cook over a gentle heat for a couple of minutes before pouring over the poaching milk. Whisk constantly over a medium heat for about 5 minutes until the sauce is thick and smooth. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir through the chopped parsley and pour the sauce over the fish, spreading it evenly.
  4. Once the potatoes are cooked, cut them in half and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the butter and mash with a potato masher until smooth, adding a splash of milk. Stir in half of the cheese.
  5. Using a fork spread the potato over the fish filling and fluff up the top. Sprinkle over the leftover cheese and bake in the oven for around 30 minutes, until the pie is bubbling and the top golden and crisp.
  6. Serve with green vegetables, such as broccoli or green beans, or a fresh green salad.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
