Creamy Fish Pie

Fish pie can be the perfect low carb healthy fat dinner for all the family. By swapping out the potatoes for cauliflower, you can still indulge in the creamy sauce and crispy cheese crust of a fish pie. Buying frozen packs of cooked fish makes this meal cheap to make but also means you can add lots of different types of fish including haddock, salmon, prawns, mussels, squid.
