A sweet spot between simple salmon and comforting potpie, this dish is packed with iron and Omega 3 fatty acids. The rich, crisp puff pastry contrasts with the spring vegetable and fish filling: light, creamy, and nourishing.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place half of spinach in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring and adding remaining spinach as it wilts, until all is just barely wilted; drain. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess liquid; coarsely chop. (You should have about 1 scant cup.)

  • Unfold dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet; freeze 10 minutes. Turn a 9 1/2-inch deep-dish pie dish over on dough; cut a circle, using dish as a template. Cut out a 1 1/2-inch hole in center. Cut scraps into 1/2-inch-wide strips to decorate top, if desired. Freeze dough 10 minutes. Brush with egg. Arrange strips on top as desired and bake until puffed and golden, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, season fish with salt; place in pie dish in an even layer. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes.

  • Add flour; cook until it has a slightly nutty aroma, about 1 minute. Whisk in stock, milk, and 1/4 cup water. Add potatoes; bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, covered, until just tender, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in peas; return to a boil. Stir in spinach, tarragon, and lemon juice; remove from heat. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Pour mixture over fish in pie dish. Top with blind-baked crust; bake until bubbling around edges, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes before serving.
