Dina’s tuna pie

This tuna pie is for Dina who wants to cook a fish pie for our time in isolation in Melbourne!  The fish I had to cook was a fillet of fresh tuna. I added various vegetables that attracted me when I peered into the fridge as well as garlic, ginger and some basil paste. I had intended coriander but the frozen stock I had of it seemed to have lost its flavour. However, the basil paste sufficed and was indeed yummy.  


1/2 red capsicum
2 spring onions 
1 mushroom
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 tsp crushed ginger root
2 tsp basil paste
200 gr fresh tuna
2 sheets frozen puff pastry
Poppy seed


Remove pastry sheets from freezer to thaw
Preheat oven to 180c
Chop spring onion
Slice mushroom and red capsicum
Crush garlic and ginger
Place one sheet of pastry in baking dish
Add tuna
Arrange vegetables around salmon
Add garlic, ginger and basil paste
Cover with second sheet of pastry
Roll edges to seal
Add pastry forming a Δ for Dina
Sprinkle with poppy seeds
Bake in 180c oven for 45 minutes

gotta love a pie! have you tried the gourmet garden brand of herb pastes and dried herbs? They're an aussie brand (and QLD brand) which is always a good thing :-) always good to use local. sorry, i sound like an ad for them ...
