A fisherman's pie with a Japanese twist to it :)
Bought some really lovely Japanese sweet potatoes (purple sweet potatoes), so I used them for the topping instead of normal potatoes. I just steamed the fish fillets (unlike the original way of poaching it) and flake them and flavor them with a delicious Japanese goma dressing that I recently made and am still in love with (also unlike the original way of making a white sauce for it).. now, here's the reason why I call it 'A fisherman's pie with a Japanese twist'.
|Does it look like I'm sowing seeds on purple soil?|
Galatian 6:7 "For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" - a message that is inspired through my purple Fisherman's pie.
