I must confess, this is one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever created but you should try this Fish and ham pie with buttermilk crust

Corlea's Fish and ham pie with buttermilk crust

But it was a huge hit in our home nonetheless.


  • I simply cut up about 6 – 8 Blue Cod fillets,
  • and about 6 thick slices of ham.
  • To that, I added a cup of mayonnaise,
  • a generous dash of lemon juice,
  • and 2 eggs,
  • and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and dill.


  1. I sauteed a large onion in a bit of soy sauce and mixed that in too.
  2. All that went into the casserole dish, topped with sliced tomatoes.
  3. And then the cheat:
  4. I mixed up two cups of buttermilk pancake mix as per package directions (which means all I did was mix in 1 1/3 cups of water!) and then spread that over the top.
  5. OK, that’s not entirely true: I added a liberal dash of salt to the pancake mix because I was afraid it would be too sweet.
  6. I sprinkled a bit of seasoning salt and dill over the top just to feel like I made an effort and then baked the whole shebang at 350°F until it browned.
  7. It was fantastic served simply with a little salad on the side.
