 Directions for Making Nigerian Fish Pie 

*First place the fish in a pot, add a little water, onions , curry, thyme, garlic powder,, stock cube and salt to taste. Cook until the fish is done.
NOTE: You can also make use of any canned cooked fish, but you won't need to cook it again.

*Now, take out the fish and some of the cooked onions and leave to cool a bit(the cooked onions keeps the inside of the Fish pie moist after frying);then take out the bones of the fish and mash the fish .

*Next,In a wide bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt and mix together;Add the whisked egg and melted margarine/butter , mix well and add cool water, bit by bit . Keep mixing until you get a firm dough.

*Knead the dough and leave to sit for 10  minutes.After 10 minutes, place the dough on a flat table/board;cut out a bit and roll flat with a rolling pin.

*Now cut the flat dough into a square /rectangle or any desired shape.

*Place the mashed cooked fish in the middle of the dough and fold one end to meet the other end, and Seal the ends with the tip of a fork;repeat this process for the remaining dough.

*Heat up the vegetable oil on medium heat until very hot, and fry the Fish pies. Fry each side of the fish pie until brown and place in a sieve lined with paper towels, to absorb excess oil.

    1. It is not necessary , but if you want to add eggs, then add it to the filling instead.

    1. The original Nigerian fish pie is usually fried, but if you choose to bake, bake at 180ºC.
