    • For the filling

    • 2 medium onions, sliced
    • 6 medium potatoes, diced
    • 300g frozen peas
    • 2 fillets salmon, diced
    • 2 fillets smoked cod, diced
    • 150g smoked salmon, flaked
    • For the béchamel sauce
    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 1 tablespoon plain flour
    • 3 cups (750ml) milk

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour15min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease a 23x33cm baking dish.
    2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions; cook and stir until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
    3. Place the potatoes in a separate saucepan and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat until tender enough to pierce with a fork. Drain and transfer potatoes to the prepared baking dish.
    4. Add the onions, salmon, haddock, and smoked salmon to the baking dish, tossing to mix.
    5. In the same frypan that the onions were cooked in, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in flour so there are no lumps. Cook and stir for a few minutes, then gradually stir in the milk. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce begins to thicken. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; remove from the heat. Stir in most of the cheese until melted, reserving some to sprinkle over the top of the pie. Pour the sauce over the contents of the baking dish, and sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar cheese.
    6. Bake in preheated oven until the salmon is cooked through and the cheese on top is browned, about 30 minutes.

    used smoked catfish in this dish and used sharp cheddar cheese, fresh peas and about a cup of chopped vidalia onions. never tried anything like this but it was very good.  -  16 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy enough to make, however when the milk mixture was hot I added the other ingredients to cook through. Then I poured the mixture into a "6 pie shell and topped with cheese and baked for 10 minutes  -  05 Mar 2014  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
