Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp light olive oil
  • 2 red onions, sliced
  • 750g raw beetroot, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 4 x sustainable white fish fillets (use hake, cod or pollock)
  • 75g full-fat crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp hot horseradish sauce
  • 200g full-fat greek yogurt
  • 2 large handfuls fresh dill (and chives if you have them), chopped
  • Buttery mashed potato to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wide, heavy-based pan (with a lid) over a medium heat, add the onions and cook for 10 minutes until softened. Add the beetroot and cook for 5 minutes, then put the fish fillets on top of the vegetables in an even layer. Cook for 5 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the crème fraîche, horseradish and yogurt in a bowl until smooth. It should be a fairly runny sauce so you might need to add 3-4 tbsp water to loosen.
  3. Slightly reduce the heat under the fish and pour the creamy yogurt mixture over the fillets. Cover with a lid and continue cooking for 8-10 minutes until the fish is just cooked through. Sprinkle over the herbs, grind over a little black pepper and serve with creamy mashed potato.

  1. Next time, make fish pie with a twist: Cook the vegetables as in step 1. Put them in an ovenproof dish, top with the fish, chopped herbs and the sauce from step 2, then cover with the mash. Bake for 25 minutes at 200°C/180°C/
    gas 6 until cooked through.
