Poach the fish gently in a pan of shallow milk until cooked. Then drain the milk and flake the fish with a fork. Remove any skin and bones. Place in a bowl and stir in the tinned soup.

Roll out the pastry on a floured board and cut 2 rounds that will be big enough to cover a shallow, oven-proof dish.

Butter the dish and line it with the one pastry round. Spoon the fish mixture onto the pastry and making sure that the other pastry round will fit, place it on the top.

Moisten the edges with water and press with a fork to seal. Use left-over pastry to decorate pie.
