Salmon Pie

I am going to tell everyone how to make Salmon Pie, a family recipe that has been in my family for generations.

You will need:

1. 1 can of salmon or fresh salmon, just make sure to take out bones.

2. 4 to 5 medium potatoes (peeled)

3. store bought pie crust or homeade

4. 3 tbs butter

5. 1/4 cup milk

6. salt and pepper

7. 1 garlic clove (optional)

8. lemon pepper or a slash of lemon juice

9. ketchup (optional)

10. pie plate

11. big mixing bowl

12. water

First, peel and cut potatoes into cubes, then boil until soft. Second, put potatoes in big bowl add some butter and milk then mash, do not whip you want some texture. Third, add your can of salmon, chopped garlic, salt pepper and lemon pepper or juice. Mix all together. Forth, spray a pie plate and put down first pie crust, add all of your potatoe and salmon mixture. Fifth, place top pie crust and crimp edges with fork, poke a small hole in center of pie to vent. Sixth, preheat oven to 375 and bake until crust is golden brown. Times vary so check after 30 minutes, it takes usually about 45 min. When done, brush top of pie with melted butter and let rest for 20 min. Anyone who wants ketchup on top of their pie can add their own if desired. It's tradition to have ketchup on it in my family but it is not needed. Enjoy!

I'm not really a fish person but this sounds nice enough to convert even me!

That sounds very good and unique. I never thought about putting salmon into a pie shell and baking it.

Are you French-Canadian? This sounds very similar to something my former mother-in-law used to make
