Luxury fish pie

We've elevated a simple fish pie by adding in a tin of lobster bisque (it's a cheat's way to make it fancy) and it gives the pie a wonderfully rich and hearty taste. Finish with piped mash (or spooned on if you're not keen on the extra step) - just make sure you fluff it up with a fork to ensure you get all those lovely crispy bits when baked.
