It is a fish thing, not exactly a fish pie, smoked haddock, tomatoes, cheese, creme fraiche... and basil.

I have frozen parsley, will that do?

I should think any leafy green herb would be fine.

Thanks Titsalina, I'll give it a whirl. DP was growing basil quite successfully but suddenly it looks grim as anything.

Parsley is good with fish and oregano is nice with tomato if you have any.

parsley would do, probably pesto too but it won't really matter if you don't use any replacement
