Fish pie recipe: Chop veges

Cook Eat | Smoked Kahawai Pie Recipe

I got inspired by NZ Masterchef recently and decided we needed to add a fish pie to our meal rotation.  Not a canned fish pie though, and in terms of dollars and cents, buying a smoked fish is pretty much the cheapest protein you could buy to add to a meal so I do declare this meal Super-Budget-Friendly!

Smoked Kahawai Pie

You will need;

  • approx 600g shredded smoked Kahawai {this cost me about $6 for the supermarket}
  • Potatoes and pumpkin for mashing
  • Milk/sour cream for mashing
  • Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Garlic
  • Onios
  • Celery
  • Mixed veges
  • Flour
  • Grated cheese
  • Rolled flaky pastry sheets, enough to line the bottom of your chosen pan

As per usual no units, we cook off the cuff sorry, this How-To also assumes some rudimentary cooking prowe!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Yum!!! I haven't had smoked fish in a long time. My dad sometimes does it when I visit but it's been a while. I'm going to add smoked fish to the shopping list 🙂
