Here, I show you how to make a delicious and easy Slimming World Fish Pie. It’s also Syn Free using blended oats, milk and cheese as part of your Healthy Extra A & B when serving 4 people. For the slightly different none Slimming World version, click here.
I’ve wanted to make my own Slimming World Fish Pie for so long! Years, in fact. But the reason I’ve never found the right time is because fish isn’t everyone’s favourite in our house.
I love cooking fish recipes for lunches (and so does my dog!) But my husband, not so much. So I whipped this up with enough portions to last three the next three days.
It’s also a great meal to make ahead and freeze.
IS SLIMMING WORLD FISH PIE HEALTHY?
There’s a well known saying that floats around Slimming World meetings. And that is, “if it swims, it slims”. Normally, Fish Pie is made with butter and flour to make a roux and sometimes with added cream.
However, I used my favourite blended oats and milk method to make a Syn Free roux. It’s also infused with onions, bay leaves, mustard and seasoning. I also omitted the butter and thickened in the microwave over short bursts.
In total, this Slimming World Fish Pie serves 4 large portions at approximately 368 calories each. It’s also Syn Free when counting the oats, milk and cheese as each person’s Healthy Extra A & B.
WHAT FISH DO I NEED FOR HEALTHY FISH PIE?
I like to make savings when I cook most of my meals. (Unless it’s a special dessert). And while I went shopping for my healthy fish pie ingredients, I discovered the instant saving was to buy a prepacked fish pie mix.
Although it’s dearer by the pound, it costs much more buying the fish separately. Or you could of course cut what you need of the following and freeze the rest for another meal.
- 130g smoked haddock
- 130g salmon
- 130g cod
- And prawns if you wish
CAN YOU FREEZE SLIMMING WORLD FISH PIE?
Yes, you can freeze Slimming World Fish Pie!
When there is a mashed potato topping on any of my recipes, I freeze before cooking.
That way, it avoids over burning the top. Or you could bake then reheat in the oven from frozen with tin foil. It’s also up to you whether you want to add cheese before freezing or not.
