Welcome to the Yourcounty Fish Pie recipe page, this is a staple that we tend to make once or twice a month, typically on a Friday. Once you learn the basic it should deliver good results every time. If you've tried this dish we'd welcome your feedback, if you wish to share your comments we'll publish your tips and suggestions at the bottom of the page.
Fish pie and fisherman's pie are usually taken to mean the same thing in British culinary terms. A pie is normally a dish with a short crust or puff pastry case and it can be sweet or savoury (a main course or dessert), the exceptions include shepherd's pie and cottage pie which cover the ingredients in mashed potato, so fisherman's pie is a fish pie with a potato topping. There do however exist fish pies where fish is cooked in puff pastry.
We have left the description of the fish you might like to use rather vague, this is not an oversight. We have some fixed ideas ourselves and normally use both white and smoked fish and usually have fresh mussels. But quite often we will buy fish in season and replace one of our stock ingredients with the fresh local seafood. Personal taste is also very important, one of our correspondents doesn't like mussels so uses prawns instead. Many of our users come from different parts of the world, a fish pie in Australia, Mumbai or Murmansk are all likely to use different seafood although the method could be identical. The choice is yours.
