Ingredients for 6 people:

the ingredients for the salmon and leek pie are simple and affordable, making it quite economical.

  • 2 puff pastry
  • 3 salmon steaks
  • 1 packet of smoked salmon 200gr
  • 2-3 fine whites leeks
  • 15 cl of liquid cream
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Herbs (dill, basil, chive)
  • Mustard (1 teaspoon of mustard)
  • 1 egg yolk

Salmon and leek pie recipe:

  • Start by cutting the leeks into slices.
  • Cook them in the microwave in a bowl with baking paper (5 min)
  • If you don't have a microwave, use a saucepan with a knob of butter and cook for 10 min.
  • After this cooking time, remove from microwave or pan
  • Add the liquid cream, mustard, juice of 1/2 lemon, salt, pepper, aromatic herbs

Placing the salmon and leek pie:

The set-up is actually a superposition of the different ingredients (as in the photo)

  • Put the 1st dough at the bottom of a dish
  • Add about 1/3 of your leek preparation
  • Cut the salmon steaks lengthwise
  • Put on top half of the pavers cut in 2
  • Add another third of your leek preparation
  • Put on top of the rest of the salmon steaks
  • Layer the slices of smoked salmon
  • Finally, complete with the rest of the leeks
  • Cover with the other puff pastry and connect the 2 doughs together

If your dish is large you can only make 2 layers instead of 3.

We can then spread 1 egg yolk with a brush on top to brown the dough a little more during cooking

Cooking the salmon and leek pie:

The pie is preferably baked in the oven, using conventional heat, for a better distribution between the top dough and the bottom one.

  • Preheat the oven to 200 °
  • Bake and cook for 20 minutes
  • Lower the oven to 180 °
  • Leave to cook for 20 minutes at 180 °

You can serve this delicious pie with a well seasoned salad!

Enjoy your meal !
