Day 214: Dinosaur pie

Day 214 of #365 Creative #Ideas to do with your kids: Are you kids fussy eaters? Make this fun shape using a large cookie cutter. Fussy eaters might not notice that this dinosaur tastes like a fish and potatoes pie! Alternatively make a chicken or vegetable pie. Anything can be disguised in a shape!
500 g sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
75 ml cream
100 g butter
salt to taste
250 ml milk
600 g white fish fillets
3 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 small onion, finely chopped
100 g button mushrooms, sliced
30 g plain flour (or coconut flour)
You need: cookie cutters in dinosaur or other shapes, or ramekins.
1. Steam the sweet potatoes or boil in water until tender. Drain and mash with half the cream and a tablespoon of the butter. Season with salt and set aside.
2. Place the milk and fish in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked. Remove the fish and retain the poaching liquid.
3. Flake the fish, removing any bones, and place in a bowl. Add the parsley.
4. Fry the onion in half the butter, until soft.
5. Add the mushrooms and cook until tender. Sprinkle over the flour and cook for a minute, stirring to prevent lumps.
6. Remove from the heat and slowly add the poaching liquid. Return to the heat and simmer until the mixture thickens. Stir in the rest of the cream.
7. Add the onion mixture to the flaked fish and stir through until well combined.
8. Spoon the fish mixture into the dinosaur shapes or ramekins, filling them two-thirds full. Top with layer of mashed sweet potato, smoothing the surface.
9. Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C for 20 minutes, or until golden and bubbling at the edges.
