Pacific Cod Hand Pies

The Inside of our handpies


Hand pies go by many different names around the world, whether you're referring to an empanada, samosa, spanakopita or even a pierogi. Today we're calling these delicious little pockets, hand pies or pasties, in honor of St. Patrick's Day and the history of the Irish and this dish. 

In Ireland, hand pies were a popular lunch item among hardworking laborers. These pies were not only filling and delicious but also designed to be eaten without the need for utensils. With the extra crust around the filling, the hand pies served as a little handle to eat with, making it the perfect on-the-go meal for workers. Make the most of your St. Patrick's day with these pies in one hand and a Guinness in the other!

Have a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day and may the luck of the Irish be with all who try these tasty hand pies!
