I didn't use the savory. Here in Quebec, the salmon is mixed in the mashed potatoes. For me that's a real salmon pie. When I made that recipe, I couldn't imagine doing a layer of mashed potatoes with the salmon on top. I mashed the potatoes with butter and milk and then added the salmon with onion. It turned out so yummy that way. Thanks Shirl :) Made for Cookbook tag game

This pie is tasty and easy to make. I think it would benefit from the addition of a sauce such as bechamel sauce as suggested in some of the other reviews. I also like the idea of mixing the salmon with the mashed potatoes rather than layering it.

I have made this pie quite a few times now and I'm finally rating it.....Excellent! My son is a big fan of anything with salmon in it and he loved it. Very easy to make and when I was pressed for time and had no leftover mashed potatoes I have even used store-bought prepared mashed potatoes. Delicious. Thank you Shirl.
