Saw this recipe for Fragrant Thai Fish Pie in Good Housekeeping and thought I would try it. It was so painlessly easy to make that it has become a firm favourite in my house.
“Fragrant Thai flavours and a crisp filo top make this a moreish, guilt-free dish” were the exact words that caught my eye when I first tried this recipe.
I was keen to conquer my fear of filo pastry (last time I attempted to use it it was a dried up disaster.) Using filo in this recipe, I’m delighted to report, was a breeze. I adapted the recipe a little and this is what I came up with:
