Fish Pie: A Family Meal

Fish is a superfood, and it should be an essential part of our regular diet because of its magical nutrients values. There are many ways to consume fish, but fish pie is one of the supper ways to make your dinner table more healthy and versatile. This supper dish with super taste is economical and effortless to make. There is nothing to beat this creamy dish. That's why it is frequently repeated at my dining.  This fish pie is made with a combination of different fishes so that you can use any readily available type of fish. Fish pie is a smooth and cheesy dish with mashed fluffy potatoes. Parsley and leeks add a lot of richness.
