Cooking time: 30 minutes Calories: 567 Macros: P: 35g / C: 29g / F: 34g
150g hot smoked salmon
100ml coconut milk
1 tsp cornflour
60g green beans
1⁄2 tsp wholegrain mustard
Handful of parsley
Sea salt and black pepper
Coconut oil / olive oil
1. Boil a kettle. Peel and chop the carrots into 1cm rounds. Trim the green beans and thinly slice the leek, removing the root end. Roughly chop the parsley.
2. Place the carrot in a saucepan of boiling water and simmer with a pinch of sea salt for 20 minutes until soft. In the last 5 minutes, add the green beans. Drain the vegetables, remove the green beans and keep warm, and mash the carrot with a potato masher (or with a fork).
3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp of oil in a medium-sized pan and fry the leek for 5 minutes.
4. Pour 1 tbsp of the coconut milk in a bowl and mix in the cornflour to form a smooth paste. Add the remaining coconut milk to the leek pan with the cornflour mix and the mustard and simmer gently for 10 minutes until the sauce thickens.
5. Preheat the grill to high. Break the hot smoked salmon into pieces and stir into the coconut sauce with the spinach and half of the parsley and cook for 2 minutes. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
6. Place the coconut fish pie mix into an ovenproof dish and spoon over the carrot mash. Place under the grill for 5 minutes.
7. Serve the coconut fish pie alongside the green beans, and scatter over the remaining parsley.
