Easy Steps To Making Fish Pie: Why walk into a fast food restaurant and ask for a fish pie when you can make yours from the comfort of your home? Well, you’d probably say the making process may be hard or nerve-wracking. We’re saying it’s really not. All it takes is your determination to want to make it, to want to learn it. Who knows, you could be making snacks every weekend for your family and friends in no time. You might as well fall in love with this recipe and start teaching others how to make irresistible fish pies.
Well, let’s start, shall we?
For starters, snacks, and foods have different ingredients, and we’ll be showing you the ingredients needed to make a fish pie.
Easy Steps To Making Fish Pie
- 500g flour
- 1 mackerel fish
- 250g of margarine
- 1 and a half teaspoons of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup of water
- Cooking oil
- Garlic powder
- Seasoning cubes.
- Start out by washing and boiling your fish. Add some salt, curry, and thyme to season it. Once the fish is ready, gently put them on a clean plate, remove all the bones, and mash them nicely into bits. Now, take out a clean cooking pan, and add some cooking oil.
- Add your sliced onions and ground pepper into the oil and stir nicely. Now, add your mashed fish into the mix, add some garlic powder and seasoning cubes, and stir again. Fry it for about five minutes and pour it out into a plate.
- For the dough, measure out 4 cups of flour, which is about 500 grams. Then add one and a half teaspoons of salt to it. Then, add half a teaspoon of baking powder and mix. Next, measure out 250g of margarine and mix again until it becomes smoother.
- Next, add one raw egg to the mixture and add some water. For the measurement of water, we're going to add little by little to suit the dough size. We'll add a tablespoon short of a cup of water (but in little quantities as we mold the dough).
- Mash the ingredients together and mold the dough into a ball. Let it rest for about 10-20 minutes in the fridge. You can wrap the dough in a clean transparent nylon before putting it in the fridge. After the time has elapsed, cut the dough into smaller pieces and start rolling them out flat.
- You can add some flour to avoid it sticking to the flat surface when rolling. After you're done rolling, use a brush to spread some raw egg onto the dough before adding the already-fried fish sauce. Place another already flattened dough over the one you're making and cut it out with a fish pie cutter.
- Repeat the same dough-making and fish sauce-filling process till you get as many pies as you want. Place a foil over a tray and sprinkle a little flour over the foil before placing the pies on top. You can start to poke tiny holes through the fish pie if you want to create some design. Use a toothpick to do this gently, not deep.
- Now, use your brush to spread raw eggs over the surface of the fish pies and gently even them out. When they're ready, place them in a 350 Fahrenheit (ca. 177 degree Celsius) oven for 30 to 35 minutes or as soon as it turns gold-brown. Your fish pie is ready to be eaten!
You don’t have to get it right the first time. We all make mistakes and there’s no perfect cook. It’s fine, just try again some other time if you didn’t get it right. We’re rooting for you.
