Fish pie

Every family has their own version of the fish pie and boy I’ve tasted some good ones (I’m talking to you Lou).  This one’s perfect for making small bite-sized pies.  Now all I need to do is plan a fishing trip.

Inspiration for this salad came from a wee gem of a book which I picked up at a book fair several years ago held in a great old hall attached to the Anglican Church down the road from us.   I…
