There is no doubt that fish pie is a much-loved dish and a great comfort food for many. Giving a portion of fish pie to your children when they are young is an excellent way of introducing them to eating fish, especially as the fish is hidden in a delicious creamy sauce and sits under either a browned pastry or crispy potato topping.
There are many variations on fish pie. In a simple recipe for fish pie, cod and haddock are generally used. Other recipes call for any white fish
fillet, whilst more elaborate recipes ask for salmon, prawns and vegetables such as leeks or mushrooms.
