Autumn fish pie with carrot mash

This is a colourful, healthy and warming fish pie which is perfect for cool autumn evenings.

It’s based on an idea from Mindful Chef – our version uses BigFish™ Natural salmon fillets but you could choose our Organic salmon or Loch Trout fillets, the results would be equally tasty!
