I made this dish last weekend with the scallops but never got round posting it. I'm still feeling a bit lazy and am knee deep in decorating so I won't post the recipe yet unless anybody desperately requires it.
The pie was simple enough but a little time consuming making all the various components. I like a smokey flavour to a fish pie, but I couldn't get any undyed smoked haddock or cod so I plumped for lightly smoked salmon fillets. To the salmon I added some of the scallops and a small handful of raw prawns. I would have also liked to put in some Garden peas but the freezer disappointed me. I put a couple of soft boiled eggs in, then topped it with a simple bay leaf flavoured bechamel sauce and some soft mashed potato. It was really delicious and even more flavoursome when finished it off the next day. It made me wonder why I don't make them more often. The scallops were lovely and sweet and went so well with the smokiness of the fish. Thanks once again Nick Pledger from Island Seafare Ltd for the delicious scallops.
