Easy Salmon Pot Pie is a seafood recreation of one of the most popular recipes on Spicy Southern Kitchen- Chicken Pot Pie.
Made with Chicken of the Sea® Lemon Pepper Salmon, a refrigerated pie crust, and a thick and rich filling with lots of vegetables, Easy Salmon Pot Pie makes a wonderful family lunch or dinner. It’s filling enough to make a meal on its own or you can serve it with a green salad or fruit.
I love using Chicken of the Sea®’s flavored salmon pouches in recipes. Because there is already so much flavor and seasoning, you don’t need to add much to the recipe. They’ve done half the work for you!
Chicken of the Sea®’s Salmon Pouches come in different flavors to add variety to your meals. I love using the Barbecue Salmon to make a quick and easy BBQ Salmon Tortilla Pizza for lunch. So tasty!
The lemon and pepper flavors of the Lemon Pepper Salmon is perfect for a pot pie. It really compliments the potatoes and the veggies in the filling and gives the pot pie a fresh taste.
I love switching things up in the kitchen and using foods in new and unexpected ways. One of the easiest ways to get out of a cooking rut is to take a tried and true family favorite and use an unexpected ingredient in it.
Just like in life itself, take yourself out of the comfort zone in the kitchen and there’s no telling how you will be rewarded.
And to celebrate this, throughout the month of March, you can take the Sea the Possibilities Challenge on Chicken of the Sea®’s website. The theme for the month of March is “Live Large” and there will be three winners for the month ($1,000) plus a grand prize winner ($5,000) chosen from 9 monthly winners (January-March).
