Serves :
4

Preparation Time :
45 minutes

Cooking Time :
50 minutes

Preparation Method :

  • To make the pastry (dough) put half the flour, salt, margarine and water in a bowl and mixes with a fork until well blended.
  • Stir in the remaining flour and mix to stiff dough, adding just a little more water if necessary. Knead on a board until smooth, and then chill.
  • To make the filling: place the milk and fish in a pan and poach for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the fish with a slotted spoon, strain and reserve the liquor.
  • Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Gradually blend in the fish liquor and wine.
  • Cook the sauce, stirring, until it thickens. Continue to cook for 1 minute, and then stir in the cod, prawns (shrimp), salmon and parsley.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. Place in a 600 ml pie dish (pan) and leave to cool.
  • Roll out the pastry to an oval larger than the dish. Cut a strip half inch wide from the edge and place around the moistened rim of the pie dish.
  • Moisten the strip and place the pastry over the top to make a lid. Trim, seal and crimp the edges. Roll out any trimmings and cut into fish shapes. Moisten these and place on top of the pie. Brush with beaten egg.
  • Cook in a preheated moderately hot oven (200°C/400°F, Gas Mark 6) for 40 minutes until the top is cooked and golden.
  • Serve hot with creamed potatoes, peas and baked tomatoes.
