Louisiana Sweet Fish Pie
This is a recipe I received from a very proud elderly aunt in New Orleans. Her son and daughter confirm that she actually made this hideous thing at least a few times each year for decades. Some family members claim to have enjoyed it at the time, but that was probably due to large quantities of my aunt's famous iced tea made with rum. from John Macdonell

Louisiana Sweet Fish Pie

2 frozen pie crusts
12 ounces whitefish filets
1 small bag potato chips
1/2 cup orange blossom honey
1 pkg. instant key lime pie filling

Prepare pie filling and set aside. In standard size pie pan, place one of the thawed frozen crusts. Crumble the potato chips into coarse crumbs and cover the bottom of the crust. Cover with one half of the honey, then pour in the pie filling.

Cut the fish filets into strips, about 2 inches across and 5-6 inches long. Arrange the fish strips on top of the pie filling, covering the surface by placing them side by side and working in a circular fashion. Drizzle the remaining honey over the fish and place the other crust on top, crimping the edges together. Using a sharp knife, cut 3 or 4 slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 minutes, or until the crust is a deep golden brown. Serve hot with lime sherbet on the side.
