Easy Peasy Squeezy Fish Pie





Fish Pie

 I have made a couple of version of fish pie now and my favourite is probably based on a Jamie Oliver recipe using Indian spices such as cumin seeds and mustards along with coconut milk to form the pie filling, however evenings in our household no longer allow for meals to take longer than 20 minutes to make therefore that is a Fish Pie saved for the weekend. The version below is a super quick mid-week alternative, still tasty and toddler friendly, even for those babies weaning this could easily be made without any salt and mashed up afterwards smoother for a delicious dinner. Hope you all enjoy this warming comfort meal as I have heard there is snow and cold weather in store for us in England over the next few days.
