Creamy Salmon fish pie

I love making pies, such an easy way to make a really fab meal, that the whole family enjoys.  The recipe below is wonderful and an adaption of a few recipes all put into one.  Fish is full of those fabulous brain boosting omegas, and most kids live a pie.

1 Tbls (15ml) Olive oil
1 Onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
100g fresh mushrooms (optional)
250ml Milk
1 tsp (5ml) Fish spice (or seafood rub)
500g Salmon, (skinned and de-boned)
100g Smoked Haddock, (skinned and de-boned)
5 anchovy fillets, chopped (optional)
2 tps (10ml) Capers (optional)
2 tsp (10ml) Dijon mustard
2 tsp (10ml) Cornflour (Maizena)
250ml Cream or creme fraiche
20ml Fresh lemon (or lime) juice
50g Cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 
400g (1 roll) ready made puff pastry

Method for the Filling:
- Fry the onion in the olive oil until translucent
- Add the garlic and mushrooms  
- Add the milk, spice, salmon, haddock and anchovies
- Poach the fish for about 10 minutes until it flake apart easily.
- Add the capers and mustard
- Mix the cornflour with a little cream in a separate bowl, adding a little cream at a time to the cornflour, until a smooth paste is formed.  Add this to the pan.
- Stir gently over a low heat until the sauce thickens (about 10 minutes)
- Lastly stir in the lemon juice, and cheese
- season to taste.

Method for putting the pie together:
- Pour the filling into a medium sized pie dishes (25 x 15cm)
- Roll out pastry to fit over the sides of the dish by about 5mm all round
- Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees for about 35minutes, over until pastry is golden brown.
