M&S Fish & Chip Pie (Food Review)

A little over a week ago I was browsing the internet and saw that upmarket supermarket Marks & Spencer were releasing a Fish and Chip pie. At first, I thought it was a little odd but then I thought, well, Fish and Chips are a British institution, as is savoury pie so why the fuck not?

I mean, after thinking about it a little more, I wondered why nobody had done this before.

As massive fans of fish and chips, Emily and I were amazed so I promised her a fish and chip pie for dinner last Friday, because I'm a classy motherfucker.

So what makes a fish and chip pie?

A layer of minted peas, a layer of fish in a tartare sauce and topped with chips in a pastry crust. To some people this sounds amazing, but to others it sounds disgusting.

So what's it like?

After tasting it, I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with it. I mean, when you have a dish, to ensure it all works you put everything that's on the plate on your fork to ensure it works together and that's exactly what this is, but in a pie with the added benefit of pastry.

You get the minted peas and the creamy tartare sauce but you can still taste the fish to full effect, with the delicious chips to top it off and make it fuller.

We both really enjoyed it, and will buy it again but probably not too often at the £3.49 per pie pricetag. It's a nice treat when we don't want to spend an even more absurd amount on a takeaway. They're not small either to be honest. We were satisfied without any sides!

So yes, we would recommend the M&S fish and chip pie!
