Just finished this, was lovely! As we live in Holland and have no fish pie mix, we used a small cod fillet and one salmon fillet for 2 persons. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definately make again.

Lovely flavour and very easy to prepare. My children aged 6, 4 and 1 loved it and I will make it again. I didn't have mace but the result was fantastic.

This is delicious so easy and very tasty - you can get away with adding a bit more Cayenne pepper and giving it some spice- don't (unless you really like hot) do what i did and add over a teaspoon - read ingredients wrong trying to multi task too much! Even so was loved by everyone!
