I was recently in Phuket and had a very nice lunch near the Ao Por Marina, Fisherman's Pie. This was very good, salmon chunks and shrimp in a cheese sauce topped with more cheese. This is a filling meal. Make sure you remove the tails of the shrimp, unlike the restaurant I visited. This was baked in a bowl and served, I used a glass pie dish, my comments below, recipe slightly modified on my findings.

Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 190 C. Put the fish chunks and shrimp in a baking dish, set aside. (I used a glass pie dish.)
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium low heat. Whisk in flour, and stir until the mixture becomes paste like and light golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes.
  3. Gradually whisk warm milk into the flour mixture and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk until the sauce is thick and smooth, about 5 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup of white Cheddar cheese, then mix onion, salt and pepper, and garlic into the sauce. If sauce is too thick, stir in more warm milk, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  4. Pour sauce over the fish and shrimp in the baking dish.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Then sprinkle with the remaining 2 cups cheese. Continue baking until fish is easily flaked with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes more and the cheese should be a nice golden brown. Remove from oven, let rest for 5 minutes, serve with a green salad for a great meal.
Recipe Notes

For starters, this is not a $1 dollar meal. The salmon price is what I know from the Tesco website, I have not bought salmon here in Thailand yet.

Tesco has salmon for 1 piece of 250 grams for 155 Baht, this is 310 Baht for 500 grams for the recipe, 250 grams of shrimp would cost about 50 Baht in Tesco, if you buy inĀ  local market, you can get for less. The cheese will run about 180 Baht for a 200 gram block, you would need 1 1/2 of these. This comes out to about $3 per serving for 6 people. If you use white fish in place of salmon, and buy shrimp from a local market, you can reduce this to less than half. Overall, the meal is delicious and would be great for visiting family or friends, as written, not really a regular meal to put in the planner.

This is a good fair value meal using whitefish.

Variations would include adding scallops, oyster meat (cook the oysters first), even fresh squid cut into rings, but these will add to the cost of the meal. Also keep in mind, you may need to increase the sauce as well.

Adapted from what I ate and enjoyed in Phuket.

  1. I made this yesterday, 23 July 2016, the appearance what not what I seen at a restaurant in Phuket, the taste was spot on, and delicious! My sauce came out more watery than I had expected, but I did not pat the fish dry before placing in the pie dish. I modified the recipe with my findings. I used 800 grams of Pangasius, cubed and small shrimp, some were deveined, some were vein in. I increased the amount of the cheese in the recipe to 4 cups, 1 for the sauce, 3 for the topping. Over all excellent meal that we will get 6 servings from.

    Quite a pricey meal, but sounds well worth it….heavenly!! :p

    • Yep, salmon is pricey here, and the cheese is imported as well, I’ll post a comment when I make this.
