Salmon Pie

Growing up in the Gaspé, near 
the Baie des Chaleur,  fish and 
seafood were regularly served.
My Mom made "fish hash"  from
Codfish and other fish, often to
  feed our large family. We ate
 a lot of Herring,  in every form,
 smoked, salted and freshly fried.

This recipe, salmon mixed with
potatoes was one of my favourites

Salmon is an excellent source of high 
quality protein, vitamins and minerals. 
High in omega-3 fatty acids.

This salmon pie is easy to make
with few ingredients and a pie
  crust on top. I used 2 cans of
  salmon (213g each) for this recipe.
I prefer (Red Pacific Wild Salmon)
Pink Atlantic Salmon may be used also.

 2 cups/ 2 cans of salmon
 with skin and bones removed.
About 6 potatoes
2 celery stocks chopped
1 onion chopped
1 garlic clove chopped
Pepper, parsley, dill
 and savory.


Boil and mash potatoes

Sante onions, celery and garlic

Add to onion mixture to salmon
along with pepper, parsley, dill and savory.
(Or your favourite herb)

Grease a 9 inch pie plate
Press 1/2 of the potatoes in the bottom

Place the salmon on top of the potatoes

Add the remaining potatoes on top of the salmon

Roll out dough to cover pie.

Place dough on top of pie
Bake 400 degrees F 25-30 minutes.


Serving suggestions: 

A  home-made white sauce:
     or a can of cream of mushroom or 
     cream of celery soup and 1/2 can water.
Or serve with ketchup or chili sauce.
