The whole family are going to love tucking into these easy to make fish pies in a mug. They take only 10 mins to prep and 30 mins to cook in the oven. They're a great potion size for each family member. This recipe uses mixed fish but if you'd rather stick with one type of fish in your pie you can - just make sure you use the same quantity. Fish pies in a mug include a great cheat too, using readymade puff pastry which certainly speeds up the cooking time. These one-pot meals will save on washing up and are perfect for the mid-week rush.


  • 600700g fish (salmon, white fillet or smoked haddock)
  • 300ml crème fraîche
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon fresh parsley (you can also use dill or thyme)
  • 1 packet of pre-rolled puff pastry, approx. 320g
  • salt and pepper, to taste

This recipe would work just as well with pieces of chicken or mushrooms for a veggie option.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4.
  2. Cut the fish into approx. 3cm chunks.
  3. Mix the fish with the crème fraîche in a medium bowl.
  4. Add the zest and juice of the lemon to the fish.
  5. Season with the herbs, remove a portion for baby, then add salt and pepper (for toddlers and adults) and set aside.
  6. Use the top of a mug to cut out discs of puff pastry and set aside. Pour the fish mixture evenly into 4 ovenproof mugs.
  7. Place a pastry disc on top of each mug.
  8. Bake in the oven for 2030 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the pastry is golden.
