Creamy Fish Pie with Choux Pastry Crust
My husband calls this Salmon recipe his Salmon wonder. Fish and shellfish are nutrient dense and salmon is no exception. It is rich in a protective antioxidant, astaxanthin, and it is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12). However, it is the content of omega-3 fatty acids in salmon that receives the most attention, and rightly so. It is this essential fat which is responsible for the reputation of oily fish as a valuable brain food.Salmon can be purchased as either steaks or fillets and be fresh, frozen, canned or smoked. Fresh salmon should have smooth, moist skin. If it has been sold whole, the eyes should be bright and clear, not cloudy or sunken. Rely on your sense of smell to tell you if the fish is fresh. If you cannot eat the fresh salmon within a couple of days, it's best to freeze it. Once frozen and thawed, it should not be refrozen.Trout fish is a great alternative to Salmon for this creamy fish pie recipe.
