    Yep what my family calls french comfort food! I too- drain the salmon and mix it with the potatoes. We also add a diced leek and thawed frozen peas.. - that and a nice green salad- there is nothing better

    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!

    Bechamel with some frozen peas added. Mixture of canned and fresh King salmon sautéed with the onions before mixing with the mashed potatoes. Salt and pepper. Bottom and top crusts. Heaven in a pie plate. Keep it simple! My grandmother always did.

    This is a traditional family food that was a staple in our household growing up. The only difference in ours is that we actually mix the salmon in with the potatoes. It infuses the entire pie with the flavor of the salmon and spices.... it's delicious! Now I want to go home and bake one!

    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
