PASTICCIO di PATATE  e  SALMONE – FISH POT PIE

If you’re having guests for dinner and you want to impress them, this dish is what you want to make. You cannot go wrong (unless your guest hates fish!). I love  to cook with herbs and fresh dill has  a unique flavor, which goes very well with this recipe.  This pasticcio di patate e salmone is absolutely delicious and yes, it does require a bit more work, but you will be pleased when each single bite will literally melt in your mouth and will satisfy your appetite leaving you with a smile on your face. I’m pretty sure that there won’t be any left over. I’ve been cooking this dish for years on special occasions. Today I made it just for my family and we all enjoyed it!

FISH POT PIE

Ingredients

  • 1 lb potatoes peeled
  • 1 lb salmon fillet cut in cubes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1½ cups of rice milk (or regular milk)
  • 4 Tbsp butter + 2 Tbsp for the sauce
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 lemon for juice and zest
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill
  • salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup cheese grated Parmesan or Emmental (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 F

Boil or steam the potatoes until they are cooked through. Drain the water and mash with milk, butter, salt and pepper. Put to the side and keep warm. In the meantime place the salmon on a skillet and cover with milk. Bring to boil and cook for 3 to 4 min. Drain the milk and reserve it for later. In another pot melt the butter with the onions and garlic and cook for a few minutes. Add the flour and stir  at the same time. Add the milk from the salmon, bring to boil while you’re stirring it to avoid clumping and reduce to simmer until you obtain a creamy consistency. Add the zest and the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Transfer the fish to a baking dish and pour the sauce over and mix gently. Make a layer on top with the mashed potatoes and sprinkle with some grated cheese.

Bake for about 30 minutes until you obtain a nice golden brown crust on top.
