Recipe by Sherrie-pie

The Women's Institute does more than produce nudie calendars! This is my favourite fish pie, from The Women's Institutes' book of 650 favourite recipes. I added my own touches, making up the amount of fish with a mixture of salmon (which I leave quite chunky), prawns and whatever else I have. This simple but classy dish is the ultimate in old fashioned English cooking, otherwise known as comfort food.
