When one thinks of pot pie, chicken traditionally comes to mind, but in this version, we use roasted wild pink salmon fillets instead for a fun twist. The salmon is cooked in the oven, then cut into bite-size pieces. As well as the salmon, the filling features bell peppers, baby peas, new potatoes, fresh dill, half-and-half, and chicken broth. It's thickened with a bit of flour, and hot pepper sauce gives it a little heat. Using store-bought crescent roll dough cuts down on prep time but doesn't sacrifice any flavor. For a quick version of this pot pie, you can use a 15-ounce can of drained salmon instead of the fillets.

Instructions

  1. Preheat to 400°F. Place salmon on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Roast salmon 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Salmon does not have to be cooked through. Discard skin. Cut salmon into bite-size pieces. Set aside.
  2. In medium-size pot sprayed with cooking spray, sauté bell pepper 2 to 3 minutes. Add peas, potatoes, dill, half-and-half and 3/4 cup chicken broth. Simmer until peas are warmed, 5 minutes.
  3. In a cup, stir together remaining 1/4 cup broth and flour. Stir into pea mixture and cook until slightly thickened, 2 minutes. Stir in salmon, scallions, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce.
  4. Pour into 2 1/2-quart casserole dish. Arrange crescent rolls around inside edge of dish, leaving center clear. Bake in oven until biscuits are browned, 10 minutes. Yields about 2 cups per serving.
