SWEET POTATO, COCONUT MILK & CHILLI FISH PIE

Autumn is for comfort and as soon as the temperature drops we find ourselves craving soups, pies & stews. This fish pie is all I wanted today! I tend to find fish pies quite dry but in this recipe the fish pretty much cooks in the coconut milk which keeps it moist thanks to its high fat content. This recipe is a concentrate of flavour and quickly became a favorite and I am sure it will be one of yours too.
