Smoked Kokenee Salmon Pies

Postby Dingo » Fri Nov 23, 2012 3:24 pm

Hey hey, after seeing Brican's seafood pie recipe, i had a hankering. As it turns out the Kokenee Salmon (a fresh water salmon related to sockeye i think) happen to be "running" in the local river.....so went down with a pole and snagged around 40 of em......

here's the little buggers after a 7 min brine....waiting for the mysterious "pellicle"

Image

off to the smoker.....(i was bored and found out my phone has special effects)

Image

Image

After a few hours of smoking.......

Image

And more time to strip the white meat....

Image

The fish has a lovely smokey aroma that I think will work well in pies. My wife & i aren't enamored by fish in general, so I'm always looking for ways to "disguise" fish in our diet....

I was then thwarted by the local grocery store being closed and I had no frozen peas & carrots.....hmmmm ......

to be continued tomorrow. :oops:

awright....after the slight ingredient hiccup yesterday was rectified.....time to make pies!! :shock:

rueing the day......

Image

In with the prawns, smoked fish, etc.......

Image

Pie casings ready to roll....

Image

Fish mixture in pie casings heading for the freezer.....top with mashed potatoe tomorrow......

Image

Fresh from the freezer to be topped with mashed potato and a smattering of shredded cheese.....

Image

Image

Vac packed...ready for another day......

Image

All in all this was an enjoyable experience. The smoked fish mixture tastes great and am looking forward to baking some tonight. 8)

It was however a lot of effort to make 14 pies...which if you have time on your hands is great, i would make these a once a year project.
