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.


  • 600–700g 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


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 4.

  • Cut the fish into approx. 3cm chunks.

  • Mix the fish with the crème fraîche in a medium bowl.

  • Add the zest and juice of the lemon to the fish.

  • Season with the herbs, remove a portion for baby, then add salt and pepper (for toddlers and adults) and set aside.

  • 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.

  • Place a pastry disc on top of each mug.

  • Bake in the oven for 20–30 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the pastry is golden.
