New England Salmon Pie Recipe

New England Salmon Pie Recipe

My mom always made salmon pie on Christmas Eve. Now I bake this dish for the holidays and other get-togethers during the year. It takes little time to prepare, and with a salad on the side, it makes a satisfying meal. -Jeanne Uttley, Salem, New Hampshire
