Creamy fish pie with flaky chunks of white fish in a mustardy cream sauce, given extra depth by the fish stock, makes a fabulous weekend lunch dish.

Whilst the fish pie may not be your first thought when you think of a warming and comforting pie, once you’ve tried this creamy and hearty pastry wrapped dish you will be sure to add it to your regular rotation. A rich and mustardy sauce that’s packed with vegies and a delicate fish flavour is a fabulous way to get more fish into your menu.
