How to Make Cheesy Salmon Pie

  1. Line a tart pan with the puff pastry sheet and trim the edges. Poke holes into it using a fork. Cover with a sheet of parchment paper and fill with dried beans. Bake for 25 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
  2. For the red onion:

    Melt the butter in a skillet over low heat and add the red onion. Cook and stir until tender. Remove from heat.

  3. For the batter:

    Add the eggs to a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add the heavy cream and whisk until even. Set aside.

  4. For the pie:

    Remove and discard the parchment paper and beans from the cake pan. Spread the crumbled feta cheese on the crust, then lay out the bell pepper pieces as a star.

  5. Add the green olives and dill, then top with the yogurt and smoked salmon. Finally, pour the batter and add the cooked onion.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes at 360⁰F/180⁰C.
