    Michelin French Restaurant Emrah’s Fish Pie


    Serves 6-8

    Fish Cure:

    500g Pollack or any white fish
    50g sugar
    50g salt

    Pie Sauce:

    125g butter
    75g flour
    25g mustard powder
    600g Milk
    1 lemon

    Pie Filling:

    500g cured white fish
    250g diced smoked salmon
    100g peas
    50g parsley
    50g chives
    3 eggs (boiled, peeled & ½)
    All the pie sauce


    1k of Potatoes
    125g butter
    300g milk
    3 tbsp horseradish sauce
    1 egg yolk


    Fish Cure:

    Dice the fish and sprinkle with the salt and sugar. This will help to season the fish and draw out moisture so you don’t end up with a wet fish pie.

    After 20 mins wash and drain.

    Pie Sauce:

    Melt the butter and add the flour and mustard to form a roux. Cook this out for 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, stud the shallot and bay leaf with the clove and infuse into the milk on a gentle heat for at least 20 minutes.

    Strain and add to the roux whisking constantly until it becomes silky, shiny and beautiful.
    Season and add the juice and zest of a lemon. Allow this mixture to cool slightly but not too cold as we still need to pour it.

    Pie Filling:

    Ladle some sauce on the bottom of a heavy dish and then arrange your filling on top. Then ladle the rest of the sauce on. (which should be neither hot nor cold at this stage)

    Chill this in the fridge


    Boil the potatoes until tender and strain. Mash and mix in all the other ingredients.
    If you have a piping bag and nozzle, put it in there and pipe onto the pie. If not just spread it on top.

    Bake at 170 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve.
