Healthy Fish Pie Recipe
When it’s Friday, fish day, and you want some comfort food, why not think about making this healthy fish pie? It is easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious. Our local market sells fresh fish on Thursday which is perfect timing for a Friday Fish Pie.
But we also normally have the main ingredients in the freezer and the fridge anyway, and it is so easy to make. It is fine to make this recipe with frozen fish.
This seafood pie recipe is so good we often make it when we have friends round for dinner as it is always a success.
Using up the catch
A few years ago I went fishing a few times with Fishing Adventures Ireland in a boat between Loop Head in County Clare and Kerry Head in county Kerry.
The fishing, as always in Ireland, was fantastic and we caught plenty of Pollock and Mackerel which went into the freezer at home.
The mackerel I used for bait as I believe it really needs to be eaten fresh. And I would not use mackerel in this recipe due to its distinct taste.
But the pollock goes nicely into this recipe as part of the white fish content.
Frozen fish is fine to use in this recipe and I like to use a nice mix of white fish meat, salmon and prawns or shrimps, depending on what I have at home or can find in the local supermarket. Sometimes some smoked haddock is available which also adds some extra taste to the mix.
Make it upfront
If you are having people for dinner this meal is great as you can prepare it upfront and just put it in the oven before you want to eat.
This means you can spend your time entertaining your guests and do not have to be worried about any faffing around in the kitchen.
I love this fish pie, and though it is maybe not the quickest of my meals to prepare, it is well worth the effort and tastes delicious!
Good luck trying out this recipe. If you do try it please let me know how you get on in the comments section below.
And hey, you can of course eat it any day of the week!
