HELP! ideas needed

  • e

I am having a dinner party tomorrow and suddenly a piscatarian is coming- chicken pot pie out.

Any ideas for a seafood pie type dish or other suggestions-

  1. You could always try throwing in chunks of Salmon or even oysters (love 'em both raw and cooked) in there instead of chicken... although there is always the chance that the seafood will be overcooked.

    Btw, what's the reason for this person's piscatarianism, if you don't mind my asking?

      Just to add, that the seafood pot pie would conceivably work better if the sauce base within was cream-based, as opposed to gravy-based.

    2. What about a seafood stew- either a Bouillabaisse or a cioppino. That way you can preserve the "make ahead" spirit of your previous menu.

      1. excuse me for my ignorance, but what the heck is a piscatarian?

          as in pices, only eats fish...

          silly me.

            Well, I'm a pescatarian, meaning I do not eat meat/poultry but do eat seafood. I'm assuming that's what edinaeats meant rather than piscatarian.

          2. Paella. Leave out the sausage and chicken and throw in some chunks of fresh fish instead - salmon, monkfish or halibut would work.

            1. I've made a really great lobster pot pie. It's in one of the Barefoot Contessa books but you might be able to get it online (I am not near the book).
