Fisherman’s pie

fishermans pie

This delicious healthy pie is a balance of all the nutrients you want for the whole family. If I have any spinach in my fridge I always add a handful into the sauce.

Feel free to use frozen or fresh raw fish for this recipe. Serve with any green vegetable or green salad. Omit prawns if you want to reheat left overs.
