This is one of the most flavorable fish dish I have ever had. I had found a recipe for a Fisherman's Pie but it was lacking something. So, after a lot of tries, I finally came up with my own Fisherman's Pie. Also, feel free to use any combination of fish and or seafood. This dish is a definite crowd pleaser.
