Welcome to Sustainable Seafood in a Bowl Tuesday

In keeping with the British theme from Saturday's Cambridge Burnt Cream, I thought why not post another of my favorites.  Fish pie is a dish I can eat everyday, or probably not, because I'd be about 350 lbs and quickly lose my sex appeal.  However, it is an awesome way to eat incredibly wholesome sustainable seafood.

Again, here are some links for sustainable seafood information.

Lazaro's Blogcritics Author Page - Ha. See how I slipped that one in?!  Shameless self promotion.

Enjoy...


White Ocean Shrimp, Spiny Lobster Meat, Calico Scallops, Pacific Halibut, Coho Salmon.


Blanched Leeks, Sweet Corn, Green Peas


For the Cream: Half & Half, Sea Salt, Grated Nutmeg, Allspice, White Pepper.


Aged Wisconsin Cheddar


Decadent Yukon Gold puree topping

Bake in oven and...


Dig in.

That's it for now...till we exchange a few words again...Peace!

  5. Oh my gosh Lazaro, freakin' DROOL! I LOVE my seafood and am totally diggin' your pie! Creamy, cheesy, seafood-y? YES PLEASE! In fact, even the first picture already made me want to dig in.

  10. That is one stunning fish pie - I can just imagine the crispy cheese topping and tender fish underneath - definitely have to make this soon because it's a real favourite of mine. I love the way you always put a great twist on traditional recipes. Beautifully photographed too; if only we didn't live so far apart!

  11. Mmm, the yukon gold puree did it for me. That looks SO good!

  12. Ha. You won't believe me on this. I just borrowed a fish cookbook from my friend and read it last night. There's a fish pie recipe and I've put it on the must-cook list! It's similar but they use pastry for a pie shell. This makes my mouth water!!!

  16. Ooh, baby, your fish pie is delectable! I especially like those swirls of Yukon gold potato. And the baked cheese melting up through the mountains of potato ... feast for the eyes AND stomach.

    Voted!

  17. You know I love everything in this gorgeous pie! The choice of potatoes (YAY for Yukon!!), the choice of seafood, the inclusion of nutmeg for depth, sweetness and warmth, but what clinches the deal for me, is how simple you've made it all seem Bravo!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my!! This looks SOOOO good. I've never really thought to make a fish pie before, but you've definitely convinced me :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. My goodness....I just ate dinner and now I am dreaming of eating again! This is dangerous!!! I saw WHITE BEANS somewhere in this read, and I make a great white bean stew with salmon, roasted tomatoes, basil and olive oil. AND BASIL! Yikes, I better get outta here!

    DELISH! Anita

  20. Oh mercy, Lazaro. :-) I've heard of Fish Pie, wanted to try Fish Pie, but this is the most fabulous version I've ever seen. :-) YUM!!

  21. I'm grabbing my fishing pole, net, chicken necks on a string--whatever it takes (probably just a visit to the Chicago Fish House) to make this fish pie. I am salivating just looking at the photos. LOVE the potato topping! Thanks so very much!! Did Audi have a bite?

    Best,
    Bonnie

  22. I love to use nutmeg in cream soups and sauces. It gives it that little special touch. Anything is better with good cheddar.

  23. This looks amazingly decadent! And a perfect comfort dish for the upcoming cold months.

    I adore the touch of nutmeg and allspice. They're the spices in creamy dishes where, while you can't exactly pinpoint them, you'd definitely miss them if they weren't there. :)
