This keto fish pie recipe is delicious and creamy low carb fish pie that taste better than classic fish pie recipe. Keto fish pie without cauliflower!
I just love this creamy keto fish pie recipe! I could eat this every day and my children approved it! That's really important for me because I don't have time to cook few meals for each family member in a day. 🙂 I prefer to cook the meals you can reheat and eat for 2 days or freeze and reheat after few days. Usually, that's not the often case with fish recipes but with this one is totally OK.
It is not very often here in Croatia to cook this kind of fish pies, so my first time to eat this kind of fish pie (non keto) was in England few years ago. And, I loved it! Probably that's the best place to try fish pie - England!
Taste of this dish is fantastic, it looks wonderful but you can make it really economically, especially if you buy your fish in a supermarket or even more if you buy it frozen! Yes, you can use frozen fish and it will still be so delicious!
HOW TO MAKE KETO FISH PIE WITHOUT CAULIFLOWER?
This fish pie recipe is really easy to make. Not so many steps and the result is fantastic! It could be perfect keto fish pie for Easter or for any other day. Wonderful yellow color will add even more style to your festive table!
I have made this fish pie with prawns or shrimp and fish and the result is amazingly delicious meal! Nice chunks of fish and shrimp smothered in a creamy white sauce and wonderful golden topping.
Best fish for low carb fish pie
I like to use combination of smoked and unsmoked fish and prawns/shrimp. Smoked fish provides a lot of flavor but don't use smoked fish only, use just a smaller part, because it could be too much. When you combine unsmoked fish with smaller amount of smoked fish and shrimp you get really the best balanced flavor and structure.
If you can't find smoked fish, this recipe will still turn out fantastic! It's full of wonderful spices and other flavorful ingredients that bring the flavor and taste to white fish that is sometimes without a lot of flavor.
For this recipe you may use fresh fish or frozen. I tried both and both works great.
Before putting the fish into the baking dish, you will need to poach the fish for 5 to 10 minutes into the boiling water with a pinch of salt and optionally clove of garlic.
Steps to making creamy fish pie
Here is a step by step procedure how to assemble this fish pie. On the bottom put fish chunks with shrimp, vegetable and spices.
Next layer are boiled eggs cut in quarters and on top goes so called white sauce for fish pie but I love making it very yellow because it looks so much better, colorful! And that's fantastic if you're making it for Easter!
Top everything with grated parmesan cheese. Parmesan cheese on top will give more of that golden brown color and it will be so tasty!
