Fishcakes have a long tradition in Asia and Scandinavia. There is definitely a creation that requires getting used to our taste. But this salmon pie is very different. The combination of dough, salmon and winter onions is a real treat.
This recipe has already convinced many who have previously said that they do not like fish. Try it. Worth it.

Scandinavian salmon pie – here’s a recipe
You need it
500 grams of skinless salmon fillets, 250 grams of cold butter, 400 grams of flour, salt, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon white wine vinegar, 2 red onions, 1 garlic clove, 4 onions, 2 tablespoons olive oil, pepper, 1 teaspoon lemon zest from organic lemon, 2 tablespoons chopped parsley, 200 grams of crème fraîche, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon cornstarch
This is done
You can use fresh salmon as a pie, but of course also frozen food. But then you have to let it cool for 6-8 hours first.
Cut or into small cubes and mix with flour, salt, egg, vinegar and 5-6 tablespoons of ice-cold water. It should be a smooth dough that you divide into two parts. Wrap both in cling film and let them stand in the fridge for about an hour.
Preheat oven to 220 degrees top / bottom.
Wash the salmon, dry and cut into large cubes. Peel an onion and a garlic and chop into small cubes. Also wash the winter onions and cut them into rings. They can be a little tougher.
Then heat the olive oil in a pan and simmer the onion and garlic for 2 minutes. Add the salmon cubes and fry, stirring, for two to three minutes. Season with salt, pepper, lemon zest and parsley. Then fry for another two minutes. Salmon pieces should not decompose.
Then pour the contents of the pan into a bowl. Fold in crème fraîche, 1 egg, cornmeal and winter onion. Season again with salt and pepper and allow to cool slightly.
Now unroll both dough ports on the floured surface. Use one of them to line a 24-centimeter-diameter pie tin. You can also use a greased spring mold. Be sure to pierce the dough several times with a fork. Then fill the cooled salmon filling and smooth.
Beat open the rest of the egg and brush it over the edges of the pie.
Cut some shapes out of the second sheet of dough. Be it hearts or stars or circles – it’s up to you. Put it aside.
Now cover the dough sheet with a lid and close the edges tightly. Then brush one side of your dough with an egg and spread it on the lid. This is how you give the cake its personality.
Now the pie goes to the oven. Lower the temperature to 200 degrees and let the cake cook for 35-40 minutes.
You can then serve the pie hot or cold. A colorful salad goes well next to it.
Enjoy your meal!
