La Receta del Dia: Pie de Pescado con Espinacas - Fish and Spinach Pie edit

What a fantastic day it has been today...Tasty Design was born. We invite you to stop by and check out the great pictures and stories on tropical food.

From now on, I guess, we will be posting recipes in English and Español regarding the Tasty Design pictures of the day!

So, here we go,


Fish and Spinach Pie

Pie de Pescado con Espinacas:


1 lb de fresh fish

1/2 lb spinach, fresh

4 oz mushrooms

2 layers puff pastry

1/4 cup heavy cream

juice of 1 lemon

2 large eggs

olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


1. Pre-heat the oven to 400º.

2. Clean, cut in chunks and marinate the fresh fish of your choice with the fresh lime juice, salt and pepper. Marinate 20 minutes in the fridge.

3. Clean and chop small the mushrooms and spinach.

4. Sautee the mushrooms and spinach in hot olive oil for 3-4 minutes or until have released and absorbed all the juices. Add the fish and sautee for 5 minutes more. Remove from stove and add the eggs and heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Cover a mold with 1 layer of the puff  pastry and top with the fish-spinach filling. Cover with the second layer of puff pastry and make sure to seal the edges. Use little water to seal if it`s necesary.

6. Open a hole on the top and brush the pie with 2 beaten egg. Bake for aprox. 20 minutes or until it`s golden brown on top.

Enjoy! Chef M

I would personally LOVE it if you posted more in English or in both Spanish and English.  I’ve been “sort of” reading your blog for a while now (or rather, reading it as best my Sesame Street and Seventh grade Spanish would let me) and chastising myself for not speaking Spanish better so I could fully enjoy your recipes and writing.
Barrett: I thought I was the only one reading my blog smile Thank you for your message! This is great, I feel motivated -enough- to post in English from now on—-The problem is that sometimes I get the -island fever-, the funny part is: -I do not live in an island!-
Thanks again,

Thank you very much for starting to post in English as well.  All this time I’ve been looking at your pics as saying to myself, “that looks so good and delicious, I wonder what those words mean”.  Now, I’ll be able to read your recipes as well. 

***Muchas gracias Lance for writing, ...now that I know some of you would like to see me posting in English—-How can I say no? impossible smile All the new recipes will be in English/Spanish, and will translate the old ones one at the time—-Thanks again!
