Snapper Pot Pies


Snapper Pot Pies
A creamy snapper filling topped with a crisp, puff pastry makes these individual snapper pot pies a winner at any dinner table.

A Pot Pie is a savoury pie baked in a deep dish, usually with pastry only on the top. These Snapper Pot Pies are made in deep dishes, the savoury filling combines leeks, salmon fillets and cream. There is no need to make pastry, we have used packet puff pastry sheets for a quick and flakey crust. You can use any seafood, scallops, prawns or blue cod will work.
