I found this recipe in a magazine many years ago. I'm not wild about fish but gave this a try and it is now a firm favourite with family and friends.

Loved this deliciously different entree. Had a difficult finding the smoked haddock so subbed with smoked salmon. Our favorite ingredients topped with puff pastry and looking so elegant - was deemed a winner - looking forward to serving it to family and friends. Thank you for sharing this flavorful combination baked in a pie - and one tastes like you've spent all day in the kitchen!
