Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sliced leeks (white and light green parts only)
  • 1/2 cup diced carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups sodium-reduced vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 300 g cod or other firm whitefish fillets cut in 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
Mashed Potato Topping:
  • 2 russet potatoes (about 500 g)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • pinch each salt and pepper

Method

In Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat; cook leeks, carrot, celery and garlic, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in broth and 1/4 cup water; cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk. Remove from heat; stir in cod, peas, dill, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper.

Mashed Potato Topping: Meanwhile, prick potatoes all over with fork. Microwave on high until fork-tender, about 7 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Peel potatoes; mash with milk, horseradish, salt and pepper.

Divide cod mixture among four 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins. Spoon potato mixture over each, smoothing tops. Bake on rimmed baking sheet in 425 F (220 C) oven until filling is bubbly, about 10 minutes.
