Pie Week is HERE and do I have a tasty treat for you guys. As you know I try to keep my recipes as simple as possible and also quite fun as well as tasty. I didn’t want to go for any old pie for Pie Week that is just too easy, so for Pie Week I am cooking a fish pie, now what goes well with fish….fish and chips of course. So why not make a fish and chip pie.
Now usually you make a fish dish with cod or a sexy salmon but why? There are so many other tasty fillets of fish out there on the market and some are significantly cheaper so I have chosen my hero ingredient: Alaska pollock, this is one tasty fish with a lovely flake and white colour.
By using Alaska seafood you know its wild, natural and sustainable it is also really delicious and you know you are getting the max amount of nutrition including those ever so important omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins: iron and zinc. Pollock like most Alaska seafood in very lean and low in saturated fat so a great healthy alternative. You can also make the cooking process that little bit easier as you can cook from frozen, reducing the prep time required for cooking, they are helping me on my quest for easy cooking.
You can find seafood from Alaska in all major supermarkets in the chilled, frozen and canned aisles, but if you're not sure whether it's from Alaska just ask over the counter. Remember Alaska is home to some of the best seafood in the world and it's perfect for any occasion.
