British Fish Pie Recipe

Fort Lauderdale Personal Chef

This is another of my comfort foods, which bring memories of cool fall and spring days by the seaside. If you happen to have access to some smoked fish be sure to add it in for an added treat. I saw a version of this by Jennifer Patterson with sauteed greens on the bottom for a meal in a pan.
Serves 4

1 pound/450g potatoes, cut into pieces
2 teaspoons/10ml salt
1 pound/450g cod, haddock or any mild white fish
1 1/2 cups/375ml rice milk
2 tablespoons/30g vegan non-hydrogenated vegetable spread
2 tablespoons/30ml rice flour (white or brown)
1 tablespoon/15ml capers, chopped
Juice of one lemon
1 teaspoon/5ml sea salt
1/2 teaspoon/2ml black pepper
1/4 teaspoon/1ml freshly grated nutmeg
8 ounces/225g cooked baby (salad) shrimp
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped small
handful finely chopped parsley, about ¼ cup/59ml
Preheat oven to 350F/176C/GasMark 4
Place potatoes in a saucepan large enough to completely cover them by 3 fingers width. Fill with water, drain and fill again to remove excess starch. Fill pot with water, add salt and bring to a boil. When the water comes to a boil remove from heat, cover and let sit in the water for 10-12 minutes. Drain reserving 1 cup of the liquid. Mash the potatoes adding in the liquid to make them smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Place the fish into a saucepan and add milk. Bring to boil and simmer for 7-8 minutes. Strain the fish from the milk, making sure to reserve the cooking liquid. Flake the fish into large pieces.
Melt the vegetable spread in the same saucepan that the fish was cooked in on low. Stir in the flour and cook gently for about 2 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup/250ml of the milk the fish was cooked in. Bring to boil and then immediately turn heat down and simmer gently for 5 minutes, or until it thickens. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the capers, lemon juice, salt, pepper, nutmeg. Stir gently to mix everything in well. Spread a small amount the filling into a shallow baking dish.
Add in layers the shrimp, then fish, eggs and topped with remaining milk mixture. Allow to cool and then spoon the mashed potato all over the filling, spreading to cover.
Sprinkle with parsley.

The Insulin Resistance Diet Protocol

NORMAN SCHMIDT DIABETES Insulin is a major issue for many individuals. While insulin is a natural part of a healthy system, when the body isn’t working perfectly then insulin can become a problem that results in pre-diabetes, diabetes, and weight loss, among many other issues. The rate of diabetes could easily become an epidemic that overwhelms the medical industry, especially as some numbers predict the rate of cases doubling from 190 million to 380 million over the next two and a half decades [1]. The good news is that in most cases insulin production in the body, and the body’s ability to properly handle it, is most often a dietary issue. This means that a proper eating plan that is carefully followed can be enough for most people to overcome their insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is a warning flag for diabetes and can make weight loss extremely difficult even for individuals who shouldn’t have a problem dropping pounds. This is where  the Insulin Resistance Die

Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain. The leafy stalk of the plant produces ears, which contain the grains known as kernels. For every kernel on the cob, there is a strand of silk. The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also.

Baby corn is available in cans or jars in the supermarkets and is used in Asian cooking. This grain is generally available in summer and can be
