Snapper and Scallop Pie


Last night I made Not Quite Nigella's Scallop and Snapper Pie. I have been wanting to try a fish pie for a while as it is something I have never eaten before so when this amazing looking dish was posted by the lovely NQN I had to try it. 


It is so simple. Golden eschallots are cooked down before adding fish stock, reducing and then simmering with cream until thick and a lovely golden colour. This is then pureed to make a delicious sauce then stir in some diced golden eschallots that have been softened.


Then just add half the sauce top with the snapper skin side down, add the scallops and then the remaining sauce. Top with some broccoli and then cover with puff pastry and bake.


Well it was incredibly delicious. The fish was so moist and soft. The sauce was so flavoursome and complimented the fish perfectly. 
I really loved this meal and will definitely be cooking it again.
