Gluten Free Fish Pie with Cauliflower Top

Fish Pie

Gluten Free Fish Pie

This is very easy to put together…The topping is Cauliflower. The white sauce is made with rice flour but you could substitute this with corn flour. Its a very economical dish as the ingredients below made four pies, two of which are in my freezer ready for a day I don’t have time to cook 😉 I put raw onions on top of the fish mixture as I love the bite it gives the dish when cooked. Enjoy 😉


  • 1 Salmon Fillet – cut in to bitesize chunks
  • 1 Smoked Coley – Fillet cut in to bitesize chunks
  • 1 Hake Fillet – cut in to bitesize chunks
  • 2 Onions – sliced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 and half heads of Cauliflower (large heads) broke in to florets
  • 150ml White Wine
  • 400ml of Skimmed Milk
  • 50g Butter (I used Flora Light)
  • 50g Rice Flour
  • Dijon Mustard to taste
  • 10g Dill (I use freeze dried dill but you can use fresh)
  • Handful of chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 20g Parmesan
  • Handful of Gluten Free Breadcrumbs
  • 60g Cheddar

To Serve:

  • Petit Pois
  • Lemon Wedges
  • Fresh Parsley


1.Fry 1/3 of the onions in the olive oil on a low-medium heat until they are soft and translucent

2.Add the Wine and let it reduce by half

3. Add the butter, Rice Flour and Milk all at the same time and keep whisking until it starts to thicken up (add more liquid if its too thick)

4. Once its a nice consistency add the Parmesan and Dill

5. Add your fish and take off the heat. Pour in to your dish/dishes. Top with the remainder of the raw onion (this gives such a nice flavour once cooked as theres still a bit of a crunch from the onions)


6.Cook the Cauliflower in a large pot of boiling water until tender

7. Puree the cauliflower up in your food processor and season to taste, add Dijon if using

8. Add half of the chopped Parsley to the Cauliflower and put on top of the onions and make sure its covered completely


9. Mix the breadcrumbs, cheddar and remaining parsley together

9. Bake for 15 minutes at 200’c

10. Add the breadcrumb topping and put back in the oven for a further 25 minutes

Serve with lemon wedges, petit pois and a nice glass of White Wine 😀
