Kahawai Pie

The horrid winter is finishing here - so Im getting a chance to use the BGE for the first real time (they only have a few of the here in New Zealand).

So I thought I would try a smoked Kahawai (fish) pie.

I didnt smoke the fish - but started with a already smoked one (Will try smoking in the egg next time).

Its a easy to catch fish - we can normally get them off the shore at the end of our street:


Its a Kahawai (Sea Salmon) (Not me in the pic) - but hey - its about the fish:


Anyway - it turned out great 400F / indirect about 35 mins:




The "T" is for Tanky. That way the wife cant take credit ! B)

Anyway - I'm very happy. Thanks to all on here for the inspiration to try something other than sausages on the BBQ.

Tank the Kiwi.

    Looks delicious. Whis I had access to fresh fish like that. You are a lucky man indeed. What wood will you use to smoke the fish next time. I use alder usually, but that is a North American wood as far as I know. :)

    I think we need to see a recipe here. :laugh: I wanna try that too! :P

    Thanks for the complements.

    Actually it was pretty easy - For the crust - there is a recipe in the BGE cookbook that is pretty nice.

    For the filling - I used one smoked Kahawai - although any 'not greasy' white fish would do - Kingfish, Snapper etc etc - Depends on what we catch I guess.

    I made a reasonable think white sauce:

    If its too 'sloppy' it will run everywhere.

    Cooked off some leeks, and red onion in butter - just a little to get them slightly cooked. Added carrots, broccoli (small pieces) and small dices of a few small potatoes I had left over in the fridge from the night before.

    layered pie - vegs, smoked fish, sauce, loads crated tasty cheese, repeated - add top.

    Indirect @ 400 or 200 for the metric thinkers.

    Remove and sere with a nice glass of Kiwi Sauvignon blanc.

    Kiwi Tank, nice cook! :) Must be nice to go to the end of your street and see that view and catch fish! We'll look forward to your spring cooks.
