This is a fish pie with a difference!
It contains the perfect combination of creamy smoked haddock and leeks topped with a celeriac and garlic cheesy mash. Not only do these ingredients make a winning combination-they are so economical on Smartpoints it's hard to believe!
If you haven't tried celeriac before, please try this method using garlic and yoghurt added into the mash-it's a delicious alternative to potato without all the carbs but with all the soft, silky textures we look for in a comforting dish.

YOU WILL NEED : (Serves 4)
1 tablespoon skimmed or soya milk
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
2 medium courgettes
4 medium fillets smoked haddock (100g each)
60g lightest Philadelphia cream cheese
1 large celeriac
2 cloves garlic
100g Total 0% fat Greek yoghurt
Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas7
Slice the leeks and fry in a little frylight oil until soft. Add the milk to the pan.
Spiralize, julienne or slice the courgettes and add to the pan with the dried herbs.
Turn off the heat then add the smoked haddock cut into chunky pieces. Stir in the lightest cream cheese.
This is the base of your fish pie.
Pop the haddock and leek mixture into a large oven proof dish.
To make the celeriac and garlic mash, peel and chop the celeriac into chunks. Add the peeled garlic cloves-these add sweetness and take the slightly sour taste of the celeriac away once cooked. Either put in a bowl or pan, cover with water and microwave or boil for around 10 minutes or until the celeriac is really soft.
Drain well and add the yoghurt.
Puree using a hand blender or food processor until you have a really smooth silky mash.
Season with lots of freshly ground black pepper.
Dot the celeriac mash onto the fish mixture. I find this is the easiest way to distribute the mash evenly.
Once the surface is covered with the mash, take a knife and gently smooth out the mash until it evenly covers the whole surface of the fish.
Grate the cheddar finely and sprinkle an even layer over the surface of the mash.
Put the dish into a preheated oven
for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden and the fish thoroughly cooked.
Don't worry if the underneath has produced a little liquid-it's delicious and the mash soon absorbs it.
Serve in warm bowls on its own or with a green salad.
Heavenly and saintly all at the same time!
