About this recipe: This pie is named 'the omega' because it contains fish that are rich in omega oils. It is also unusual because it doesn't use pastry as a top crust but instead uses a polenta soda bread mix.
The idea for using the corn soda bread as a topping is not mine but rightly belongs to Paul Hollywood although this recipe is not his. This cornbread recipe I have tweaked from a cook on here called "bluegirl" and I would like to thank her for it. It can be used as a topping for any pie that would normally have a pastry topping and it does away with the need to roll out pastry.
I used the polenta topping on my own fish pie recipe and it turned out great! My partner was v skeptical but loved the end product. I used only about 20g sugar and sprinkled some grated cheddar on top, both of which I think I'll omit next time (not sure why the original recipe contains so much sugar!) - 06 Nov 2016
