"It's almost like a shepherd's pie but with fish and spinach. Great dish for a cold gloomy day. It's Irish comfort food at its best."

Method for Fisherman's Pie

  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • 2
    Arrange cod in a single layer in a large baking dish; set aside.
  • 3
    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste-like and light golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Gradually whisk warm milk into the flour mixture and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk until the sauce is thick and smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • 5
    Whisk in white Cheddar cheese, then mix onion, spinach, salt, and black pepper into the sauce.
  • 6
    Remove saucepan from heat and stir in garlic. If sauce is too thick, stir in more warm milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • 7
    Pour sauce over fish in baking dish.
  • 8
    Layer mashed potatoes on top.
  • 9
    Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, then sprinkle with yellow Cheddar cheese. Continue baking until fish is easily flaked with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes more.
