Quick and Easy Pastry Topped Fish Pie with Princes

I was recently set a challenge from Princes to create a quick and easy recipe using their tinned fish products. I was told that the recipe must contain at least 5 ingredients including Princes tinned fish. It must also be possible to make the meal in 15 - 20 minutes.

I am always up for a cooking challenge and got my thinking cap on.

One of our favourite meals has to be a fish pie. However fresh fish is so expensive and to make a fish pie for the five of us I need to buy a lot of fish. That is where my inspiration for this meal came from. I wanted to recreate a quicker and more budget friendly fish pie.

This is what I did...

Quick and Easy Pastry Topped Fish Pie


1 x 160g tin of Princes skinless and boneless Atlantic salmon with lemon and black pepper
1 x 213g tin of Princes wild red salmon
2 x 160g tins of Princes tuna chunks in brine
200g cooked and peeled king prawns
1 onion, chopped
200g tinned sweetcorn
750mls white sauce
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
375g packet of ready rolled puff pastry (unroll 10 minutes before using)
1 egg


1 - Cut out discs of puff pastry the size of your serving bowl and place on a baking tray covered in baking paper. Brush the pastry discs with egg wash and place in the centre of a pre heated oven (200C) and bake for 10 - 15 minutes.

2 - While the pastry lids are baking gently fry the chopped onions in 1tsp of vegetable oil for 5 minutes.

3 - While the onions are cooking mix the fish and prawns in a bowl.

4 - Add the fish and prawns to the pan with the onions and cook for 5 minutes.

5 - Pour over the white sauce (for speed I used granules, however if you have more time you can make your own)

6 - Stir in the chopped parsley and sweetcorn. Heat for 5 minutes.

7 - Remove the pastry lids once the are golden.

8 - Spoon the fish in sauce into the serving bowls and top with a pastry lid.

This fish pie can be served as it is, with extra vegetables or even some new potatoes. Tinned fish is not only quick and easy to use but it is also cheaper than fresh fish.
