FOOD DIARY: Wednesday, May 8th a fish pie that went wrong

Not all experiments turn out well and even brilliant cooks like Diane must hit the wall of unsuccessful recipes and such was the case last night.  Diane , in her search for new recipes, took an idea from a cooking magazine (something that she does not do very often.)  The recipe was for a seafood pie, sort of a Shepherd Pie but for seafood.  You have the idea: bake seafood with a little milk and some flavourings and then cover it with mash potatoes. 

Initially it sounds like a good idea but the recipe called for too much potato covering and not enough liquid.  I suppose it could be reworked but I do not think that mash potatoes goes well with seafood: in this case: salmon and prawns.

She served a luscious salad with the pie and we washed it down with a La Vendetta pinot grigio which made it all very nice.

    This recipe looked great but I must say that neither the potatoes nor the fish shone in this dish.
