Recipe For Snoek Pie

Snoek is a locally caught fish which exists in abundance. It is a well known Cape linefish and is available seasonally. Barracouta is the same fish but is caught in New Zealand. The sad thing is that one of the local fish mongers is selling the New Zealand fish as apposed to our locally caught snoek. In keeping with my regional, local support philosophy, I will not buy the imported version. When snoek is available we braai it. They are fairly large, and so for two of us, there is always left overs. This snoek was given to us by a friend, and we had it for a braai with a friend of ours. This left me enough left overs to make a snoek pie.
