Salmon Pie

If you love salmon and flaky puff pastry, you are going to love this recipe! This flaky salmon pie recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients, it’s fancy enough to make for a dinner party, and best of all, has amazing flavor.

The Fish

 When it comes to seafood, Atlantic salmon  is one of the favorites here in my house. So, whenever possible, I choose to buy wild salmon or frozen- at -sea fish.    Farmed fish may contain many contaminants like dioxins and PCB’s, which are known carcinogens. Yes, the are usually a bit more costly, but worth the extra expense for a healthier fish filet.

Flaky Puff Pastry

I chose to use frozen puff pastry for this recipe, made by Pepperidge Farm.   It is very easy to use and is always perfectly flaky and delicious.    Fill the pastry with a salmon portion and a bit of savory dill mayonnaise, bake, and place it on top of a bed of brown rice and then side with your favorite vegetable and dinner is done.  It’s that easy!

Ingredients:

  1. 2 salmon portions ( approx. 1/4 lb each) 
  2. ½ sheet puff pastry ( e.g.Pepperidge Farm) 
  3. ¼ cup mayonnaise  
  4. ¼ cup sour cream 
  5. 2 tbsp fresh chopped dill 
  6. 1 tsp seafood seasoning ( old bay or similar) 
  7. ¼ tsp salt 
  8. ¼ tsp pepper
