Smoked fish toasties

Artisan loaves form the base of many quick dinners and are an integral part of weekend breakfasts and lunches.



1.Melt the butter in a pot, then add the flour and some salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute, stirring with a whisk.
2.Add the milk ½ cup at a time, whisking after each addition. Whisk until the sauce thickens then add the parsley, fish, lemon rind and juice and stir to combine.
3.Slice sourdough loaf into thick slices, buttering 1 side of each slice. Make into 6 sandwiches, buttered sides out, with a generous filling of fish in each.
4.Heat a frying pan, then fry the sandwiches gently for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden.

The fish sauce can also be used to make a lovely fish pie. Transfer it to an ovenproof dish, top with mashed potato and bake at 180°C for about 30 minutes until golden and bubbling.
