There are lots of fish pie recipes to choose from but this one is perfectly balanced. A generous amount of haddock and cod is topped with a creamy parsley sauce and mashed potatoes, and then the whole thing is baked until the potatoes go crispy on top. This beautiful fish pie recipe contains peas and corn for added nutrients (although you can omit these if you prefer), as well as nutmeg, lemon and cream for an aromatic yet creamy finish.

If you want to, you can switch the cod for fresh salmon, or for another similar fish. Pretty much anything goes with this exciting fish pie recipe so just use whatever fish is available.

It is important that you check the fish for skin and bones before using it. Run your finger up the center of each filet. If there are any bones, you will be able to feel them. You can simply pick them out with your fingers or tweezers. You will be able to see if there is any skin on the fish; this is easy to peel off.

The lemon and parsley flavored filling is smooth, indulgent and creamy and the nutmeg potato topping is beautiful. This is a well-balanced dish and it is suitable for any occasion, although it is especially satisfying in the cooler months.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
