Dommy’s Dinners: A New Fish Dish – Halibut Shepherd’s Pie

Dommy | Jul 12, 2007 01:54 PM

Here I was trapped in June Gloom and with a couple of Halibut Steaks to use up. It was summer! I felt it in my soul!! But the sky was telling me otherwise. Bleh... So really… I was in no mood to grill them… It also wasn’t cold enough to justify baking them either! So I went through my ‘must try’ files and came across this recipe which was just perfect! Halibut Shepherd’s Pie!

What attracted me most to this recipe (Aside from using a copious amount of mashed taters…) was that it was mostly stove top so I could really have fun with some additions (For some reason the stand alone recipe seemed a little bland!). So added diced carrots and mushrooms. I added some Tarragon and other herbs to make the flavor POP! And then added the fish and spinach… It all came together very quick and really nicely. YUM!!

I filled a lasagna pan with my mixture and then added the Potatoes on top…

Then, I sent it to blast in the Broiler for a few minutes! BEAUTIFUL!!

The smells were just driving P. up the wall! So I quickly served him up a slice…

Yum! Fish Pie!!! It was really good, the additions of the Carrots and mushrooms and spices really helped it from tasting a bit one note. Also the Halibut stood up on it’s own rather well and the recipe does say you can use Salmon or any other firm fleshed fish!

The verdict was that this is defiantly something we would do again. It was a nice change of pace to do with Fish and without the heavy meats, it felt comforting, but still lighter…. Just perfect for a gloomy summer day…
