I made this recipe up the other day. We found it to be very good. Even the leftovers didn't last 24 hours. It is really a meal in a dish.

I loved this recipe and give it four stars but the rest of my family was not a fan and has asked me not to repeat. :( Not sure where it went wrong for them exactly. They like all of the ingredients individually but somehow they just weren't in love with it. I personally think it is a fabulous way to use up leftover salmon fillet and mashed potatoes which I often have in the fridge. Perhaps I will just have to make myself an individual portion in ramekins next time for lunch.
I really like this a lot! More and more with each bite. I love the mushrooms,spinach and potatoes in this recipe. Yummy! It was my first time making a fish pie so I did not know what to expect. It was easy to make. I used mashed potatoes from my supermarket's takeout. It did have a lot of liquid that I poured off about 10 minutes before it was ready. Great comfort food! I will definitely make this again!
