I made this fish pie a few weeks ago. It was so unbelievably delicious. It was so moorish I had to lick the yumminess from the plate. So tasty.
The recipe was in a library book I borrowed, and I can't for the life of me remember what the book was called. So this recipe is from my memory banks as I couldn't find the book again!
500 grams fish (this could be a mixture of any seafood. I used Basa and Ling from the deli at Woolworths)
700 mls milk
1/4 cup flour
75 grams butter
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
1 cup frozen mixed veggies or peas
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 egg, beaten well
Pour milk into a large saucepan and heat on a medium heat. Add the fish and poach for five minutes. Do not boil.
Strain the fish, retaining the milk. Break the fish into chunks and set the fish and milk aside.
Heat the butter on a medium heat, add flour and stir for a minute. Stir in the milk gradually. Add the mustard and cook, stirring until it thickens. About five minutes.
Add veggies, herbs and fish. Stir to combine and heat through. Season with salt and pepper.
Place in a pie dish.
Cover the fish mixture with puff pastry. Brush the pastry with beaten egg.
Cook in a 180 degree oven for 25 minutes, until the pastry is golden brown.
