Salmon and Shrimp Pie

December 29, 2012

Spending time in England you certainly must have tried some of their famous ‘Fish Pie’.  This is a variation that takes me back to some wonderful comfort meals shared with good friends in some famous English pubs.  I changed it to salmon and shrimp (two of my favorites), but any fish will do. Typically I always saw peas and/or carrots served with this pie and sometimes in the pie itself.  Here I just sautéed quickly some spinach.   I do like the idea of having at least two types of seafood.  Enjoy.
