Instead of making a bechamel sauce, just add an undiluted can of cream of mushroom soup. Cream of celery or something similar would work, according to your taste. I make this in a prepared loaf pan, too, as Salmon Loaf. Peas can be put in, but, they look good on your plate next to a huge slice of pie!Reply
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 game4Reply
