Fish Chowder Pie


This fish chowder pie is something that I created in order to use some smoked trout that was hanging out in my fridge. After reading a handful of recipes for fish pie and cullen sink (Scottish fish chowder) I felt prepared to embark on my own take. Instead of using a pie crust or puff pastry for the lid, I decided to use the phyllo dough I had in the freezer. Fewer trips to the store, more cooking in the kitchen.
