Introduction: Salmon Pi Pie

A savoury Pi shape pie to celebrate Pi Day

Although the recipe asks for canned salmon, leftover salmon can be used. If you're allergic to fish use some leftover chicken. Not a meat eater? The pie could easily be turned vegeterian by replacing the salmon with other ingredients such as mushrooms and rice.

Step 1: Ingredients

1. Roll out half the dough into a thin rectangular shape.
2. Spread half the filling into the middle of the pastry. 
3. Fold the pastry around the salmon, seal all end openings and set aside.

Step 4:

1. Place the filled pastry pieces on a baking sheet as to form a Pi shape. The larger piece is the top part of Pi while the smaller pieces go on the sides.
2. Use the saved salmon juice from the can to brush all over  Pi, alternatevely you can use butter or milk. This will give the pie a nice golden colour.
3. Bake the pie at 375 F  until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes.
4. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

HAPPY Pi DAY !!!!!!!!

The only time I've ever tried canned salmon it had lots of bones in it *shudder* Is that typical? This looks really good! Thank you for sharing, and good luck on the contest!

Usually I tend to use fresh/frozen or left over salmon. This is the only time I've tried canned salmon and it did have bones, however, no one who tried the pie seemed to have noticed the bones. The bones seem to disintegrate.

Nice! I'll have to try the vegetarian version.
