Slow cooker cooking – Fisherman’s Casserole.

This is a recipe for the slow cooker that I’d been meaning to try for a while.

It contains eggs, which I’ve come across in recipes for Fish Pie but have never added because I always thought it sounded a bit….ick, to be honest.

Yesterday I decided to try out the casserole.  A couple of people have asked for the recipe, so here it is:-

Ingredients

700g (1.5lb) cod

3 hard boiled eggs, chopped

100g (4 oz) button mushrooms, sliced

salt and pepper

50g (2 oz) flour

400ml (3/4 pt milk)

75g (3oz) Cheddar cheese, grated

1 bayleaf

2 cloves

 

Topping

50g (2 ox) Cheddar cheese, grated

2/3 tomatoes, sliced

4 slices toast

parsley

 

Instructions

  1. Cut the cod into pieces and put into the slow cooker.
  2. Add the eggs, mushrooms and season well.
  3. Heat the butter in a pan, add the onion and fry without browning.
  4. Stir in the flour and gradually stir in the milk. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously.
  5. Add the cheese, bay leaf and cloves.
  6. Pour over the fish and cook for 2 –  2.5 hours on the Slow cooker’s high setting, or 3-6 hours on the auto setting.
  7. Remove the bay leaf and cloves and stir gently.
  8. Sprinkle cheese on top and arrange the tomato slices in a circle.
  9. Brown under a hot grill, garnish with toast triangles and parsley.

My verdict?  Tasty but I’d leave the eggs out in future.  They’re filling, but even though I chopped them up into small pieces, I thought they were over powering.
