Ready in about 1 hour 10 minutes, plus cooling
Syns per serving: 2½
700g medium potatoes, peeled
Low-calorie cooking spray
2 leeks, sliced
1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100ml fish stock
200g plain extra-light soft cheese
½ small pack fresh dill, chopped
400g fish-pie mix, or a mix of skinless and boneless smoked haddock, salmon and white fish chunks
175g raw peeled king prawns
Boiled thin-stemmed broccoli and sugar snap peas, to serve
1 Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes, or until just tender. Drain, leave until cool enough to handle, then slice into 0.5cm-thick rounds.
2 Spray a large, lidded, non-stick pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat. Add the leeks and fennel, and cook for a few minutes. Cover and cook for a further 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the garlic, cook for 30 seconds, leaving the pan uncovered, then turn off the heat.
3 Stir in the stock and soft cheese. Leave to cool, then stir in the dill, fish-pie mix and prawns. Spoon into a medium baking dish and top with the potatoes, overlapping slightly.
If eating straight away: Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Spray the potatoes with low-calorie cooking spray and bake for 25-30 minutes until bubbling and hot all the way through. Grill for 3-4 minutes until golden on top, then top with freshly ground black pepper. Divide between 4 plates and serve with the broccoli and sugar snap peas.
If freezing: At the end of step 3, cover with cling film, then freeze in the baking dish for up to 1 month. To serve, defrost overnight in the fridge, discard the cling film and follow the instructions above.

Add in Healthy Extras®
To help provide a good balance of nutrients, enjoy two measured portions of milk or cheese each day – your Healthy Extra ‘a’ choices.

Also have one portion of wholemeal bread or breakfast cereal each day – your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice. To keep things simple we’ve built your Healthy Extra ‘b’ choice into the menu plan each day.
Choose your Syns®
Foods and drinks that pose a risk to your weight loss – those high in fat or sugar, as well as alcohol – can be enjoyed as carefully counted Syns. We recommend you plan between 5 and 15 Syns into your day (see the bottom of the next page for some ideas).
Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
