Cook, Eat | Smoked Fish Pie Recipe

So many iconic New Zealand brands are participating in New World’s Little Shop promotion but Sealord have taken it one step further this year; they have built two fully functioning Little Boats, complete with engine and rudder which will be given away to two lucky Sealord customers!  All you have to do is buy Sealord at New World and swipe your Fly Buys card to get in the draw.  Check out how cute the Little Boats are: 

Our family was treated to a delicious lunch by Sealord including an amazing salmon, smoked mussel, orzo and micro-greens salad {which I’m totally going to try and recreate} but our favourite dish was the smoked Hoki pie and being totally cheeky I asked for the recipe – to share with you of course! {FYI We don’t have a smoker so I’d sub out the Hoki for a 450g tin of Sealord Smoked Fish Fillets}.
