Our fish pie is topped with sliced new potatoes and is dotted with peas. The creamy cheese filling is very easy to make and uses a microwave to make the process even quicker. You’ll never want to use a ready-made sauce or sachet again. This salmon fish pie uses one salmon fillet and serves one, making it a great alternative for anyone who doesn’t like traditional fish pie recipes. You can easily multiply the ingredients depending on how many you are cooking for, just be sure to have enough individual pie dishes. Cooking the salmon fish pies in individual portions smartens up the presentation and is great if you’re trying to impress!
