Cameroon fish pie is the perfect comforting snack for every season and occasion. This crispy, brisk snack will give a lively spark to a dull day. Even though it is simply dough filled with fish, and seasoned vegetables, it has the capacity to nutritionally change your life!

As a pastry queen, I fully endorse Cameroon fish pie for all occasions. This goodness is always highly sought-after by my clients. Remember I told you earlier about my snack home ‘café’ when I released my fish roll recipe. A good number of my clients lean more towards fish pie than meat pies as such, the demand for it is always high. By the way, I stopped taking orders for Christmas, so my friends you just have to prepare this easy snack yourself! There is so much comfort in curling up on your sofa with a warm cup of tea and some fish pies to see you through a cold evening.

I will show you how in a few clear steps. Cameroon fish pie recipe is quite similar to the meat pies with a slight difference which I leave you to discover. Cameroon meat pie recipe here


For the dough:

  • 4 cups (500grams) all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup melted butter (about 250 grams)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup water (78ml)

For the filling:

  • 2 cans of mackerel or sardines fillet (250grams i.e 125grams each)
  • 1 grated carrots
  • ½ chopped onions
  • 1 seasoning cube
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper

I will recommend preparing the filling first:

  • Open and drain excess oil from the mackerel in a colander
  • In a small sauce-pan, cook carrots, onions for 5mins
  • Pour in the mackerel
  • Sprinkle the seasoning cube and white pepper
  • Stir, give it 2 minutes to just mix nicely
  • Remove and keep aside

Then the dough:

  • In a large bowl, put all the dry ingredients: flour, salt, sugar, baking powder
  • Gently mix the ingredients together
  • Beat eggs and set aside
  • Pour in the melted butter into the flour
  • Closely accompanied by the beaten eggs
  • Now mix everything nicely
  • Pour in the water
  • Knead vigorously to get one big lump
  • Your dough should be smooth, not sticky and slightly elastic

Now cut dough into small balls

With a rolling pin flattened the balls into circles


Place in spoonful of the filling and close from one edge to the other

With a fork close the edges

Place on a baking sheet
