In the words of Faux Fuschia, this morning ‘the universe directed me’ to make fish pie. I woke up feeling like I just had to have it. I just had to make it.
How I love you, Coles Showground Village. You are so beautiful and have everything I need to get me through a fortnight, but your beauty makes me spend!
I sliced onion, leek, garlic and cooked them until they were soft with a bit of olive oil.
Then I added mushrooms, snow peas, celery, carrot and parsley. I cooked these until soft.
I used seafood mix and salmon.
Look how beautiful the pink salmon flesh is next to the silvery skin.
I added the salmon and seafood mix to the vegetables, and let it cook further for about 15 minutes.
Here are the remaining ingredients needed for the pie. I only used a smidge of cream, and the butter was for greasing the dish and brushing on the pastry.
The pastry was low fat, and I think this meant it didn’t turn out as flaky and crispy as full fat pastry. Still it was delicious, and very rich!
I love pie.
