Fish Pie

I could potentially live on fish, so if like me your a fishy fan definitely give this one a go! Although this is a comfort and wholesome meal its very appropriate for this summer weather we are having, the flavours are quiet fresh and zingy and the cream sauce isnโ€™t too heavy! I would highly recommend avoiding shop bought, packaged fish take the time to go to a fish mongers or if its a lovely sunny day take a trip out to Howth or Dun Laoighre and get some fish fresh off the boats, its worth it and nothing tastes as good!
