Florentine Fish Pie

This Fish Pie is made so simply with your Asko Steam Oven. Everything is cooked in the oven before being assembled and baked. It can be as basic or as decadent as you like by changing the type of fish. You can use Tinned Smoked fish, or a freshly smoked fish along with any type of fresh fish or shellfish. Prawns, mussels or even scallops will turn a regular weekday meal into something really special .

This recipe makes a very large pie, or 2 smaller pies. One can be frozen for later use.
