Stargazy Fish Pie

Fabulous and Original Mediterranean Stargazey Fish Pie

Original Mediterranean Recipe

If you're looking for an Original Fish Pie Recipe that brings together most of the flavours of the Mediterranean in one dish - Look no further.
We have been wanting to create a Pie that owes nothing to Cream and thick Sauces. Something bursting with flavour and yet relatively quick and easy to make.
So David has packed this pie with Salmon and Hake and Juicy Prawns, along with Onions and Garlic - Green and Red Peppers - Lemon Juice, a hint of Chilli and, of course, plump Vine Tomatoes with fresh Basil Leaves.
Almost all the work is in  the Preparation - then it's just a case of putting it all together, pop it in the oven and you'll end up with one of the most original and tasty Mediterranean Dishes around today.

Fish Pie Method

Tomatoes and Spinach in the Stargazy Pie Recipe

First of all arrange your tomatoes and wilted spinach in the bottom of the casserole.

Fish in the Pie

Then arrange your fish - first shelling the prawns.
Leave that to one side and, in a pan, pour a good amount of extra virgin olive oil, and fry the sliced onion with the sugar on a medium heat. (the sugar is there to help the onion to caramalize).

Pie mixture ready for the ToppingThen add the peppers and sprinkle some salt and the crushed chillis.
Lower the heat and add the garlic.
Make sure everything is cooked and then add to your casserole.
Add the lemon juice and zest and the basil.
Now you're ready for the potato topping. First of all place your Prawns at strategic places around the edge of the casserole, as if they're gazing up to the stars.

Then arrange the potatoes all around with a sprinkling of salt and a good drizzle of
olive oil between each layer. Grind plenty of Black Pepper on top.
Cover with Aluminium foil and Cook in a hot oven - 200ºc./400ºf. for an hour.
Now take off the foil and sprinkle your grated Parmesanon top with some more EVOO.
Return to the oven and bake for a further 20 minutes until the top is crisp and Golden.

Now serve it up with plenty of chilled white wine.
And our Crusty Brown Bread Recipe to mop up the juices.
