Salmon Pot Pie With Georgia Pecan Biscuit Crust

  • Serves 6
  • Georgia Pecan Commission

Homemade pot pie is streamlined here by using store-bought pearl onions in a cream sauce as the foundation of the filling. The crust, made from a ready-made baking mix and plenty of crunchy pecans, is also fuss free-simply mix and pour. If desired, cooked chicken or turkey can be substituted for the salmon.


  • 12-oz. small red potatoes
  • 12-oz. salmon fillet
  • 2 packages (9-oz. each) frozen pearl onions in cream sauce, thawed
  • 1 cup frozen petite peas, thawed
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

In a medium saucepot, cover potatoes with water and heat to boiling; cook 20 minutes. Drain and spread potatoes on sheet pan to cool.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Remove and discard skin from salmon; cut fillet into bite-size chunks. Place salmon pieces in large bowl and add thawed onions and their sauce, the peas, celery, tarragon, and black pepper, mixing well. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut into small cubes and add to salmon mixture. Spread mixture in pie plate.
