* This is a beautiful pie recipe and is in stark contrast to the easy-to-make tuna bake.

* To make this really special, use the quick puff pastryalthough more effort is required, the results are well worth it.

* If you are concerned about bones when buying fish for this dish, request pieces of fish from the tail end as a guarantee of no bones. Or you could ask your supplier to take the bones out and dice the fish for youat a possible extra charge.

* Instead of the puff pastry lid, try topping the pie with mashed or crushed potato. Cut some butter into small dice and sprinkle over the mash topping before bakingsame temperature and time. Or you could sprinkle grated cheese over the mash topping.

* From fish pie to seafood pieuse the combination of seafood mentioned in the recipe for seafood crepes.

* Any number of vegetables can be added to this pie, the most common being peas. Adding vegetables is not necessary and if serving with a good salad, there is no need to worry about a lack of greens with this dish.
