This mouthwatering meal contains fresh herbs, salmon, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic and more. Salmon fans will really enjoy the delicious flavor of this extra special salmon pie and even those who are not sure whether salmon is appealing to them are sure to be won over by the combination of fresh flavors in this magnificent salmon pie recipe.
Phyllo pastry is easy to work with but you do need to chill it prior to cooking it, else it will be dense rather than flaky. Perfect phyllo pastry is light and flaky, providing a great contrast to the tasty fish filling.
You can make any shape you like with the pastry, even a traditional pie shape, but rolling it up to make a strudel-style pastry case works well with this recipe. Serve this with a salad or with rice and broccoli or green beans. This tasty salmon pie recipe makes a hearty weeknight treat or even a wonderful dinner for a Saturday or Sunday, when everyone is relaxing at home and you want to make something extra good.
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh herbs (maybe try parsley, thyme, and chives)
- 1 lb salmon filets, in 2 ½ inch strips
- 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
- 3 tablespoons drained sun-dried tomatoes
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 garlic clove
- ¼ cup butter
- 6 phyllo leaves
- 3 tablespoons green pesto
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- ½ teaspoon sesame seeds
- Put the sun-dried tomatoes, sour cream, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and process until smooth.
- Melt the butter in a pan and add the minced herbs.
- Put a phyllo leaf on a sheet of waxed paper with the widest part facing you. Brush the herb butter all over it. Repeat with the remaining phyllo leaves.
- Spread the sun-dried tomato mixture over the phyllo a couple of inches from the edge facing you.
- Make a phyllo strip as wide as the fish pieces. Arrange the salmon over the sun-dried tomato mixture, and then rub the pesto over the top.
- Fold the closest pastry edge to you over the fish. Keep rolling it into a strudel-style log until the pastry is all used up, and then fold the ends underneath.
- Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
- Put the pie on a parchment-lined baking tray and chill for half an hour (this will make the layers flaky).
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and bake the pie for about 18 minutes or until it is golden brown.
- Cut the ends off, and then cut it into 4 equal-sized slices to serve.
This salmon pie recipe is not difficult to make but the results are impressive. The salmon is flavored with pesto, garlic, herbs and more and the phyllo pastry is golden brown and crispy. Salmon is a very popular fish to use in recipes and it is really versatile. Not only can you bake, grill, fry, or poach it but you can wrap it in pastry and make a tasty salmon pie recipe. The photo shows you how the juicy salmon contrasts well with the flaky pastry and how some brightly colored salad leaves make a nice accompaniment for it.
