This recipe has a lot of potential. With a few tweaks, this was a seriously yummy meal! I, too, am always looking for new recipes to use canned salmon. This was quick, easy, and the finished product looked great. I had extra potatoes so I followed the other suggestions to use mashed potatoes instead of rice. I boiled two large baking potatoes, mashed them up with some sour cream and a bunch of seasoning ( 1 t of oregano, fresh ground black pepper, basil, thyme, parsley, plus a healthy kick of cayenne pepper!) I doubled the cheddar cheese and layered everything twice (bottom crust, mashed potato mix, sauteed onion mix, salmon, cheese, sauteed onion, salmon, potato, cheese, top crust).
We could barely wait for the pie to cool before trying it since it smelled so good. My husband actually wiped the bowl clean with his finger-not normal behavior, believe me! Thanks for the inspiration!
I'm sorry to rain on the parade, but I thought this was a little weird. It's entirely possible that I messed it up. I used instant mashed potatoes instead of rice (mashed potatoes mixed with cream of mushroom soup is pretty good). If it sounds good to you, then by all means, listen to the other 15 reviewers!
I tried this recipe and loved it, and then tried making it with potatoes instead of rice, and used cream of asparagus soup...even better!
This recipe turned out great! I love the sauteed onions on top. I'm surprised that the recipe didn't specify this, but I definitely recommend using RED salmon - it's more costly for a reason! For those who prefer, 3-4 cups of mashed potatoes (not instant) can be substituted for the rice, and adding parsley, pepper, and a teaspoon of thyme or your favorite seasonings (Italian) add nicely. A great, tweakable recipe.
I followed this recipe exactly, except I halved it for the two of us, put it in a quiche pan and just used the top crust. It was very good, and a different way to use salmon. The flavor was satisfying and good as is, but I might take the suggestions of other reviewers and add some dill and/or lemon pepper next time.
This is SO good! I used brown rice instead of white rice in an attempt to make it a little healthier. I also used leftover baked salmon instead of canned -- I just flaked it on -- and it turned out great! I just wish pie crust weren't so bad for you... otherwise, I'd make this recipe all the time!
This is great and pretty easy to make. Per a few others' suggestions, I used mashed potatoes instead of the rice. I also added the cream of mushroom soup to the mushrooms and onions. Lastly, it turned out that I had enough filling to make two pies so I did that instead. The mashed potatoes were the top layer and I didn't put more pastry on top. I sprinkled on the cheddar cheese ten minutes before the pie finished baking.
I didn't have fresh mushrooms, so I substituted 2 4oz cans drained well. Everything else as recipe stated and it was very nice. Served with Tomato pie II from this site. Good combo according to those who ate the supper!
