Fish Pie Recipe

When I first heard about fish pie, my immediate reaction was “what?”.

Try it, it’s pretty simple and quick and I’ll guarantee you’ll love it.

I suggest doing basmati and/or a green salad as accompaniment.


  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ cup mushrooms
  • ¼ green pepper
  • ½ grated carrot
  • 1 Tin Middlecut or plain Pilchards & a squeeze of lemon
  • 1½ cups white sauce, with nutmeg & mustard
  • 1T chutney
  • ½ cup grated cheese
  • ¾ cup breadcrumbs

T=Tablespoon as against t=teaspoon


Pre-heat oven to 180oC (degrees Celsius).

Lightly fry vegetables and put aside

Make white sauce (1½T butter or olive oil, 1½T flour, 1½ cups milk or use ½ fish liquid)

Let sauce cool slightly. Beat 2 eggs and add to sauce. Mash fish lightly, squeeze over juice and fold with rest of ingredients, including the breadcrumbs & cheese.

Pour into greased deep rectangular oven-proof dish. Sprinkle the grated cheese and some extra crumbs & sunflower seeds on top.

Place in the oven and bake  for +- ½ hour @ 180oC (degrees Celsius).
