    Prawn Pie Recipes

    G,day everyone,

    I am looking to see what prawn pie recipes are around.

    I remember years ago having an amazing prawn pie that had a creamy / curry type sauce added with carrot and peas etc.

    I think it was an ol skool recipe, and would love to replicate that one again !!!

    Make up a curried prawn recipe, thicken and place in pie casing as filling.

    Never tried it but sounds ok

    How about dropping the prawns at my place, and I will give you a couple of bucks to buy a good old meat pie. That will work.

    Sounds fair David, I am lucky to eat a lot of prawn hence why im looking to do something a little different.

    There are Prawn and Scallop pies getting around in CQ.

    I was in Tassie last year and had a Scallop pie every day..

    Might have to have a crack at making them myself

    both sound like good pie fillers, I would add a wee bit of chilli instead of mustard though.

    Prawn and Scallop Pies
     600gm scallop meat roe on
     600g green prawns, shelled, head and tails removed
     40g unsalted butter
     1 leek, white part only, sliced into rings
     1 carrot, peeled and chopped
     2 washed potatoes (300g), peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
     2 tablespoons plain flour
     2 cups milk
     3/4 cup (180ml) fish stock
     1/3 cup (80ml) white wine
     1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
     Salt and cracked black pepper
     3 sheets ready rolled puff pastry, thawed
     1 egg, lightly beaten
    Select all ingredients
     Step 1
    Preheat oven to 200C. Heat a large saucepan of water over medium heat. When simmering, add fish and prawns, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until lightly poached. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel.
     Step 2
    Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add leek, carrot and potato, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until just tender. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Gradually add combined milk, stock and wine, stirring the mixture constantly with a wooden spoon to avoid lumps forming.
     Step 3
    Simmer sauce for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Add scallops and prawns, and cook for another minute. Stir through parsley, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool for 10 minutes.
     Step 4
    Spoon the cooled filling mixture into four 2-cup capacity ovenproof dishes. Cut the pastry sheets into rounds using a 4cm-diameter biscuit cutter. Gently press edge of pastry rounds onto rim of pie dish until rim is covered, taking care not to press pastry into filling. Working from the outer edge towards the centre, carefully arrange pastry rounds over filling, without pressing down, until pie is covered. (You'll need about 15 rounds for each pie.) Brush with egg. Repeat process for remainder pie dishes. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden and puffed on top.

    I have used this recipe twice now. The 2nd time worked the best. I replaced wine with Cream, added an extra tablespoon of flour as well as some curry powder. I also trade Scallops with Spottie mackerel flesh

    They make a large pie and now I am attempting to make individual ones.

    Re: Prawn Pie Recipes

    OMG Phill !!!! that looks unreal. Did you omit the wine and add cream to thicken it .? What do you reckon about leaving the wine and adding cream, reduce it to thicken plus use a little flour?

    And yes..... individual pies would be the way to go!!
