Summer Fish Pie

I always enjoy a good old fish pie. However it is a warming, autumn/winter comfort food. In the summer I like to eat lighter meals and this one is perfect.

I have combined the classic fish pie flavours with summer vegetables finished off with a crispy cheese topping. This meal is not only full of summer flavours but only takes 30 minutes to cook so you are not spending a long time in the kitchen with the oven on!

This is what I did...

Summer Fish Pie


350g fish, mixture of salmon, cod and smoked haddock
1 red onion
1 red pepper
1 courgette
150g mushrooms
6 baby tomatoes, quartered
200g new potatoes, cut into cubes
Olive oil
100g Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar Crumble with Black Pepper


1 - Cook the cubes of potatoes in a hot air fryer for 30 minutes with a tsp of parsley and 1tbsp of olive oil. If you do not have a hot air fryer boil in water for 5 minutes and then roast in a pre heated oven at 200C for 25 minutes.

2 - While the potatoes are cooking heat a little olive oil a large frying pan and add the fish. Fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes.

3 - Add the onions, courgettes, red peppers, mushrooms, baby tomatoes and 1tsp of parsley to the pan and cook over a medium heat until the fish is cooked through and the vegetables have softened.

4 - Transfer the fish and vegetables into an oven proof dish and top with the cooked cubes of potato.

5 - Sprinkle over the Pilgrims Choice Mature Cheddar Crumbles with Black Pepper and place under a high grill until the cheese has melted and is beginning to brown and serve.

This is such a tasty, easy and quick meal that all of the family enjoyed. If you love fish and the flavours of summer this dish is for you!

  3. I've never thought of putting veg in a fish pie, but this sounds like the perfect combination, so I'll definitely have to give it a try now.

  4. I've only made one fish pie before (and it was certainly the winter classic), but I love the change up with these fresh summer veggies. It's lighter and sounds delicious...
