We all love pies, Meat pie, Chicken pie or fish Pie. In this recipe I used tuna fish to make the fish pie but you can use your favorite fish.

9. Put the fish mixture in the middle and brush the end with the egg yolk. Close it and seal the edges with a folk.
10. This can be baked for 30 minutes or deep fried.
11. FOR DEEP FRYING: In a deep frying pan, heat the oil on medium high heat and fry the pies until done around 15 minutes each.
