Nasty fish pie

Mr Oliver, I do not trust your recipes at all.

How can fish pie be made nasty? Does not compute...

I tried a recipe that was simple and did not require poaching the fish or a white sauce. It included cheese, carrots and lemon juice. Russ liked it but I found it very bitter :-s

He's not as bad as Paul Hollywood who insists on using plain flour and baking powder. Yuck

We've only tried one of his - a white bloomer. Apart from looking like a giant deformed foot and lacking salt, it was OK...

Why do none of them use salt? It drives me up the wall. Only my baby books seem to actually replace the salt with flavoursome herbs and spices. Most other recipes are just Bland!

It's true. Everything seems to need more salt, more pepper and more thyme.

Fish pie is nicer if you *do* cook the fish...

It had its chance for 50 minutes in the oven...but next time I'm going to poach the fish first. And if that doesn't work, I'll have to face the fear and make a white sauce.

I have a theory about recipes/cookbooks...I'm starting to believe they purposefully miss ingredients out (like salt, herbs etc), just so you never quite make it as good as it should be. That way you always refer back to the book for more help or purchase additional books in the hope of one day achieving culinary perfection! It's all a marketing ploy...at least that's reasoning I'm attributing to my recent cooking disasters...

Hah! I like it!

I am sick of Jamie Oliver's sloshes, glugs, dribbles and drizzles. He seems incapable of specifying how much of an ingredient is needed. I am never buying one of his cookbooks again!
