Salmon and leek pie recipe:

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
