Salmon Broccoli Pie

Prep time 2 minutes Cooking time 15-20 minutes
Serves 2

I had purchased a side of fresh salmon (for myself) and just didn’t want to freeze half of it. So, I cut the side into 3 pieces and griddled them. I ate 1 slice, froze another slice and made a pie with the last piece. This is the result.

  • 200g cooked/fried fresh salmon
  • 1 handful frozen prawns (optional)
  • 1 small broccoli (cut into florets, stem- peeled and cut into smallish pieces)
  • ¾l milk and fish stock (dissolve a fish-stock cube in ½l hot water & use half)
  • 20g butter (10g each for the filling and the broccoli mash)
  • 2 tbsp Cornflour (to make the roux gluten free)
  • Salt & Pepper and herbs (onion, garlic salt and green herbs) to taste.
  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
  2. Place the broccoli in a steamer and microwave for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove the skin from the salmon, flake it, making sure to remove all fishbones. Spread this into 1 big oven dish or 2 smaller portion oven dishes.
  4. Spread the frozen prawns evenly over the salmon.
  5. Make a roux with butter and corn flower, and gradually add the milk & water mixture.
  6. When the sauce is smooth add salt, pepper, garlic or onion granules and the dried parsley and pour this evenly over the fish.
  7. Place the cooked broccoli in a food processor (using a blade) and add the butter (flake it), salt, pepper and other herbs if wanted. Pulse it until it has a slightly grained consistency. I also use a little of the leftover fish stock to make it easier to pulse.
  8. Place in the hot oven for approx. 15 minutes, until the lop looks crusty.
  9. Finish off by placing the dish under the grill for 2 min to get a lovely crunchy brown top.

Enjoy!
