I followed the instructions to the letter and it came out more like a seafood chowder! I wouldn't make this again.

Reply from Di Swann

It is really important that the fish is patted dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. The filling will be saucy but delicious with the mashed potato and kumara topping.

Following your comment Christine, I used flour on fish in a hope to thicken. Certainly better than chowder consistancy but really needs a rue sauce to thicken Pasta bake.

Chance would be a fine thing to try this recipe. I'd need to be a billionaire! So I'll stick to my usual curried tuna fish pie recipe. But I'm puzzled that for Christine Meade it came out like a chowder. With all that mashed potato and kumara on top of it?

I also followed the recipe and this was a seriously delicious fish pie.

I followed the recipe plus added a few bits of my own like nutmeg and bay leaves but I can tell even without these the flavors would be awesome. I have had many fish pies. This was one of the best. The pasta sauce definitely provides a good creamy and flavoursome base.

I used this recipe in conjuction with my own very similar one - EVERY plate was emptied - the potato Kumara mash was a hit!

Christina Ahearn's Review | Rating

I made this and have made it twice more in the past two weeks, it is great ! I replaced the white fish with surimii as one family member doesn't like fish, and also used coriander instead of parsley. For a dinner party, I added fresh scallops instead of surimii, together with the white fish and prawns and salmon. Important to dry out the fish and prawns , and although you do get a bit of the runny sauce at the bottom, this works in favour if you serve with broccoli or cauliflower which lend themselves to a cheese sauce . 5 stars for me !

Candiss Palalagi's Review | Rating

I made this dish twice. First lesson I learnt after the first time, you really need to pat the fish & prawns. It was a bit wet. The second time, I did pat the fish & prawns, that's OK, a little bit wet still, but I might not put all of the sauce in next time.

Louise Higgins's Review | Rating

Highly recomended. My partner says its the best fish pie he had ever tasted.

Shona Edwards's Review | Rating

Very tasty, like Candiss i would only use half of the sauce. Might swap the expensive salmon for crabmeat see how that turns out.

Brenda Gutsell's Review | Rating

in reply to the woman who said she needed to make a roux , use a packet of pams seafood soup to thicken it , works brilliantly (:

Ruby Thompson's Review | Rating

Made this great recipe last week and froze the leftovers. The pie was enjoyed by everyone who tasted it and was reported the frozen portions tasted just as good when thawed and re-heated at a later date.
Will be making this again without doubt.
ps: I used Hokie and folded in a tin of Red Salmon (only just broken up) some frozen Scallops I had along with the Prawns, DELICIOUS....
