"Govern a great nation as you would cook a small fish. Do not overdo it."
-Lao Tzu, Philosopher

The refrigerator light goes on...

This seafood variation on the classic British Cottage Pie is delicious with almost any seafood or combination of fish. The salmon is great but cod, grouper or tuna would work. Using a few clams, mussels or even a bit of crab in almost any combination will make a great dish.

The carrots give this dish added texture. You can, however cook them for longer or even use something else like diced parsnips or peas. The variations on this are endless.

You can use a pastry bag fitted with a star tip to pipe the mashed potatoes onto the top of the pie.It makes a great dish a bit more elegant.Don't worry if you don't have one, however.You can spoon the potatoes on top of the pie and swirl using a rubber spatula or a spoon if you want to add some decoration.
