Fish Pie

Today was one of those days. I tried to do too many things at once and in the end not nearly enough got done!

Quite awhile ago I made what I call a “Finnan Haddie Pie”. I made it up as I went along (no surprise!) using Grindstone Neck cold smoked haddock and some cod. I layered it up with veggies along with a garlic and sherry sauce in a couple of gratin dishes and topped it with mashed potatoes. Well, tonight I stumbled across a “Fish Pie” by Jamie Oliver. I haven’t made it yet (it’s been one of those days, remember?). But it’s a dead easy dump it all in and mix it up sort of recipe, which, ingredient wise, reminded me of the spirit of my Finnan Haddie Pie. Although, I have no problem admitting that there is no way on God’s green Earth I could dump all the ingredients in the way Jamie did! Mine would have to be more layered and arranged!

Anyhoo, go ahead and watch the short video of Jamie making his Fish Pie. I bet it will prove to be a good springboard for your own creation. Arranged or dumped - it’s up to you!

I'm a dumper, then I load up the mashed spuds (complete with and egg yolk and cheese) - O how I love fish pie, roll on winter!

Hi DMM -
You're a better man than I am re: your ability to be a dumper!
As I think about it I used cheese either in my mashed potatoes or perhaps some Asiago grated on top...
Yum!
I need to make some version of fish pie ASAP!
;o)

Hi Gail -
I know, he's so adorable when he says that!

I too was creeped out by the mish-mash way he assembled the filling. (Guess we didn't lick that up off the grass!) But the final version was mouthwatering!
Must go buy fish now...
;o)

Maybe if I come home for Thanksgiving you can serve fish pie as a first course???!!!

Sorry, I had to pause and take a moment to wipe the drool off my keyboard.

Hi Gail -
Perhaps Fish Pie as the main course!!!
Before I mention Fish Pie here again, maybe we should get protective covers for our keyboards. Wouldn't want them to short out from the drool!
