Halibut Pie


Everybody loves pot pie. It has got to be in the top five of all comfort foods. Its buttery, flaky 'lid' keeps all the creamy goodness piping hot until you finally dig in and take that first bite. It's heaven on a chilly day! So a halibut pot pie is the perfect meal to keep us motivated and dreaming of summer.  I used my delicious Sour Cream pastry for the top crust, but of course, you can always use ready made puff pastry or really change it up with creamy mashed potatoes.


Halibut Pie

1 lb skinned Halibut

2 large eggs- hard cooked, and diced

Sour Cream Pastry

1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
6 T unsalted cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 c. sour cream

In a food processor, combine flour and salt. Place the cold butter on top of flour and pulse machine a few times, until butter is cut into flour and resembles coarse meal.

Remove mixture to a bowl, add the sour cream and mix together. Dough will be soft. Turn out on a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Form into a ball, sprinkle with a little flour, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes. Can be made 2 days ahead and can be frozen.
