Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C /gas 7. Tip the spinach into a colander sitting in the sink and tip the potatoes into a saucepan. Bring a kettle full of water to the boil and pour enough over the potatoes to cover and slowly pour the rest over the spinach to wilt it. Bring the potatoes to the boil and cook for 8-10 mins until tender, then drain and roughly mash.
  2. Leave the spinach to cool, then squeeze out excess water with your hands. Scatter the spinach over the bottom of 2 individual or 1 small ovenproof dish leaving two gaps for the eggs. Crack the eggs into the gaps, then season with salt and pepper. Distribute the fish over the spinach and eggs. Spread over the crème fraîche and drizzle with the lemon juice. Loosely spoon over the potatoes, drizzle over the olive oil, then bake for 20-25 mins until the top is crispy and golden and the sauce is bubbling at the sides. Leave to stand for a few mins, then serve straight from the dish.

Really liked this - quick and easy. The creme fraiche makes it moist without being creamy. I used salmon and half the amount of spinach. I also mashed the potatoes so they were smooth - worked really well.

very disappointing. fish dried out even though i shortened the cooking time. Sauce tasted very bitter bitter, may have been the lemon juice? Even husband didnt like it and he eats anything.
More than half of dish ended up in the bin!

I love a traditional fish pie, and although this is quite different it is still delicious, and all the better because it takes hardly any time to make (as apposed to poaching fish and making sauces). I did add some king prawns and also a sprinkle of grated cheese over the potatoes. My children liked it too, so I will definitley be making this again and will try using salmon or a mixture of fish.

sometimes i use a mixture of fish or just salmon, and it is really nice either way.
