Keto salmon pie
- ¾ cup 175 ml (75 g) almond flour
- 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (35 g) sesame seeds
- 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (25 g)
- 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (10 g) ground psyllium husk powder
- 1 tsp 1 tsp (5 g) baking powder
- 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
- 3 tbsp 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
- 1 1 eggeggs
- 4 tbsp 4 tbsp water
- 8 oz. 225 g smoked salmon
- 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
- 3 3 eggeggs
- 2 tbsp 2 tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
- ½ tsp ½ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- 5 oz. 150 g cream cheese
- 5 oz. 150 g (325 ml) shredded cheese
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Place the pie dough ingredients into a food processor fitted with a plastic pastry blade. Pulse until mixture forms a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a fork to mix the dough.
- Fit a piece of parchment paper into a 10-inch (23-cm) spring form pan. (This makes it a cinch to remove once it’s cooked.)
- Oil your fingers or a spatula, and gently press the dough into the spring form pan. Pre-bake the crust for 10–15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Mix all the ingredients for the filling, except the salmon, and pour that in the pie crust. Add the salmon and bake for 35 minutes or until the pie is golden brown.
- Let cool for a few minutes and serve with a salad or other vegetables.
Be flexible! Feel free to swap cured, boiled or grilled salmon in for smoked salmon – just make sure you adjust salt and spices accordingly. And don't be afraid to make it ahead of time! This pie freezes well, so you can always keep one on hand for a quick midweek meal.
