    A creamy pastry-free fish pie. The fish is first poached with the mushrooms, then topped with mashed potato and baked in the oven. I found this recipe on an English website and I'm posting it here for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. If you cannot find the specialty mushrooms specified in the ingredients, use field mushrooms or your favourite variety of mushrooms.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6 and butter an ovenproof dish, scatter the mushrooms in the bottom, add the fish and season with salt and pepper, to taste; pour the boiling milk over the top, cover and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
    2. 2

      My husband is British and grew up eating fish pie and he loved this one! Also I just used 1 small filt of cod for our 2 servings, also threw in 8 half-cooked shrimp and 6 scallops! Was all amazing and went really well with roasted asparagus.

      I used oyster, baby bella and regular button mushrooms - this was so delicious. However, next time I won't top it with the mashed potatoes. I just did not find that appealing. I'd serve it over the potatoes, instead. My milk had turned, so I used evaporated milk, which added creaminess to the final dish. I also omitted the celery, as I never seem to have any, but used some celery flakes, and added some red bell pepper for color, which worked out quite well.

      This was great--although I didn't make it as a pie. I used portabellow mushrooms, as that was what I had. I put those in the casserole dish, and placed whole cod filets on top. I followed the directions for the sauce, put everything back in the same dish, but didn't add the potatoes (I did cook it for an additional 30 minutes as the directions state) It made a fabulous main dish with carrots and rice.
