“The original version of this recipe was found at Traditional Welsh Recipes. The coastal town of Oystermouth, in Swansea Bay, is not far from The Mumbles, sometimes known as the Gateway to the Gower Peninsular. This fish pie was originally made from salt cod and is traditionally served with parsnips. I wanted to include a Welsh recipe or two since one line of my family ancestry is Welsh. Made for ZWT #6--2010”
