Easy Fish Pie


Never a fan of fish pie, my mother told me that I had to try this Donna Hay recipe as it was delicious. I made this for the family, it was a hit and has become a staple for easy dinner parties.


  • ⅓ cup (80ml) olive oil
  • 800g firm white fish fillets, skin removed, chopped
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 250g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon store-bought horseradish cream
  • 1 cup (250ml) single (pouring) cream
  • ½ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 thick slices sourdough bread, torn
  • 30g butter, melted


Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F). Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add the fish and cook for 1–2 minutes each side or until browned.

Remove from the pan and keep warm. Add the remaining oil, onion, and garlic to the pan and cook for 2–3 minutes or until softened. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute.

Return fish to the pan with the tomatoes, horseradish, cream, and parsley and stir to combine. Toss the bread with the melted butter and place over the fish mixture. Bake for 25 minutes or until the bread is golden and crisp. Serves 4.
