Fish Pie à la Wigglesworth

If you like a little fishy on your dishy, read this post and get your wishy…

Back

It’s not quite as de facto pub grub as bangers and mash. It’s possibly one-up from that, but it’s always been there.

Lurking in the realms of quick fix family dinners.

FISH PIE.

The sound of it draws imagery of flat colourless mush, splattered undignifyingly on a plate. Semi mashed spuds, singular fish content, and if things are really bad, no sauce.

There is a lot that can go wrong here.

I’m a lover of great food, but fish pie is one of those meals that often fails to deliver.

One of the many things I love about cooking, is that it gives the opportunity to abstract things and make them better, and that is where fish pie becomes an ideal candidate for this approach.

Well here is our family recipe, that turns a fish pie from a dull dry depressing idea, to a genuinely gorgeous gastronomic delight.

It’s the kind of dish where you go back for seconds, and then lick the serving spoon, and soak up the gubbins with bread and butter, then gleefully gaze upon your pot belly as you recline into a evening of pure contentment.

Enjoy.
