Salmon Pie

My passion in the kitchen is not only limited to baking cakes and preparing cookies, but I also enjoy cooking flans, different types of quiche and pies! Here is a simple yet delicious salmon pie recipe;
Ingredients:

5 onions cut in wings

1 whole diced leek

1/2 a cup of milk

1 tablespoon flour

3 eggs

300 grams of grated yellow cheese ( I use a mix of emmental, babybel, cheddar)

Seasoning to taste: a dash of salt, fresh ground pepper, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger powder

250g salmon baked fillet

I usually marinate the salmon fillet in the following ingredients;
1 squeezed orange
1 tablespoon grain mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cloves of garlic

Salt, pepper, and ginger powder

Bake in the oven until cooked.

Flake the fish and set aside. The interesting part, is that you can use leftovers of a salmon fish from the night before. In this case, I would heat the flakes of fish using a knob of butter.

Now that the salmon is ready, spread the ready made pie crust in the desired pan. Cover with wax paper and add some beans on top. Bake in a preheated oven until the sides become a bit golden in color. (around 20 minutes) I usually use Marie or Carrefour brand for the puff pastry.

Now for the filling. Cook the onions in some cooking oil or butter until caramelized. Add the leeks and continue cooking for five more minutes. Set aside to cool. Beat the eggs along with the peppers until fluffy. Add the flour, milk, and some of the grated cheese. Fold in the onion mix.  Fill in the crust with the mixture. Sprinkle more of the cheese on the top.

Bake in a preheated oven until the eggs mixture is set – around 25 minutes. Serve warm along with a green salad.
