Reviews for New England Salmon Pie
"When I make a salmon pie I use the red salmon. I do not add the onions and etc. I just mash my potatoes and add butter and some milk. I also add parsley and pepper. Serve it warm with butter and ketchup."
"This recipe is terrible. I had leftover salmon and wanted to use it. The mixture of salmon, onions, potatoes and milk was just sort of blah with an oniony salmon undertaste. I usually like Taste of Homes recipes and maybe someone's family likes this, but mine was unanimous and I ended up throwing most of it in the garbage."
"Just like I make except I save the drained can liquor and brush it on the crust instead of an egg wash,,,I also make an egg sauce and add frozen peas and a little of the liquor to that...Too good to waste. Good pie!"
"Perfect! I was trying to duplicate my mother-in-laws famous salmon pie and I hit the jackpot. Everyone loved it. Thank you!"
