My Fish Pie Bites are perfect for babies and toddlers who enjoy feeding themselves. A delicious creamy snack, full of flavour that your little one will love.
This recipe is easy to make and packs a nutritional punch too. A fantastic way of getting more fish into your child’s diet and much healthier than supermarket bought fish fingers.
Serve with green vegetables as a delicious supper or individually as a snack or light lunch during the day. My daughter loves dipping her fish pie bites in tomato ketchup.
Fish Pie Bites can be enjoyed by adults as well as children. My husband sometimes takes them to work in his lunch box. I’m always making batches of these and freezing them as they do not last long in our house.
Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 1 hr 45 mins
3 medium baking potatoes
2 medium cod fillets
1 tbsp frozen sweetcorn, defrosted
1 tbsp frozen peas, defrosted
1 tsp fresh parsley, chopped
25g cheddar, grated
2 eggs, beaten
Olive oil for greasing
- Heat oven to 200C/180 Fan/Gas 6. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and roast in the oven for 1 hr 15 mins. Wrap the fish in foil, put on the same tray and cook for approx 10-12 mins until cooked through.
- Once cooked halve the potatoes and scoop put the filling into a mixing bowl. Flake the fish, remove any bones and skin and add to the bowl.
- Grease a baking tray with a little olive oil. Mix together the potato and the fish, vegetables, parsley, cheddar and egg.
Allow to cool a little, then take a golf-ball sized dollops of mixture and form into little croquette shapes. Arrange on a foil lined tray and chill in the fridge for 30 mins.
If freezing put the tray in the freezer instead. Once frozen transfer to a freezer bag and take them out when needed. Thoroughly defrost in the fridge before cooking.
- To cook, heat the oven to 200C/180 fan/gas 6. Place as many of the fish bites as you need on a baking tray and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. The inside will be very hot so make sure it has cooled down before serving to your little one.
