Talk about an easy and impressive dinner! This Salmon Pie has 6 ingredients (if you don’t count oil and seasoning), takes around half an hour to cook and is so damn delicious you’ll keep making it again, and again. It’s a family favourite in our house and I’m sure you can see why. Warming, filling and one-pot. What’s not to love?
I like to serve it with creamy mashed potatoes, but it is equally delish on its own. Enjoy!
700gm Fresh Salmon – skinless and boneless, cut into 2cm dices
2 Leeks – washed and finely sliced
1 cup Butternut Pumpkin – peeled and cubed into 1cm cubes
1 small bunch of Dill – roughly chopped
300mls Thickened cream
1 sheet Butter Puff Pastry – use good stuff, please.
Salt and Pepper
- Preheat your fan forced oven to 200c.
- In a heavy based pot or dutch oven, heat 2 tbs of oil over a medium heat and fry the sliced leeks and pumpkin together for about 5 minutes until they start to soften, season really well.
- Once the veg is soft, take the pot off the heat and add the raw salmon and roughly chopped dill with the cream. Stir well and add a little more seasoning if you think it needs it, then carefully place the sheet of pastry over the top, tucking into the sides well.
- Cook for 20 minutes until the pastry is puffed and brown, then leave to sit for 5 minutes. After resting, eat immediately.
