Nemo Pie

Finding Nemo is one of my favourite kids films, indeed I even have a cuddy Nemo at home which temporarily distracts the nieces & nephews when they come a-calling. However I'm much more fond of Nemo & his underwater buddies for my dinner.

Tonight I was home alone for dinner, seeing as The Hubs was off somewhere watching Man U-Bloody-nited play football in a pub, so I decided to have a very nice but very lazy dinner. I am a huge fan of Delia Smith and her part cheat/part cook approach to food, so here's how I made my Nemo Pie.

I chopped up some carrot, shallot, broccoli and green beans, tossed them into a reused Chinese takeaway container, added a drop of liquid stock and water, and popped it into the microwave (lid on) for 90 seconds on high.

Then I chopped up some smokey Coley (reduced to clear in Tesco to 80c) and took the tails off some deveined cooked prawns (which were lurking in my freezer as a free gift from my Mum)
Then I made up a packet of Beurre Blanc sauce we bought in France last year, added a handful of chopped flat leaf parsley and mixed it all up with a handful of frozen petit pois. Finally I topped it off with some frozen spring onion mash and threw it into the oven on 200c for 25 minutes until it was all bubbly and yummy.

It tasted even better than it looks.
