Pie with fish and potatoes - nourishing and tasty!
The following recipe will certainly surprise all your relatives and friends, as it is not traditional and combines ingredients that seem incompatible to some. Today we will cook a pie with fish and potatoes. And the fish we will take is not fresh, but canned. With its help we will prepare a delicious cake. It would seem a strange combination, but a similar cake with fish and potatoes is very common in countries not only in the East, but also in the West. The secret of cooking is that due to the presence of juice in canned food, the cake is very juicy and salty. It will seem ridiculous, but such a dish can be used not only as hot, but also as a snack, because in the cooled state it will be just as tasty.
In principle, the recipe for how to bake a cake with fish is quite simple. But before cooking, you need to decide what kind of fish we are going to use. Canned food like sprats and mackerel should immediately be set aside, since sprats are smoked, and mackerel has many bones.It would be possible to try to make a pie using a pink salmon, but it is not particularly juicy, and therefore, the pie will come out dry and tasteless. Therefore, the ideal option for us is canned tuna. It is quite juicy, contains little bones, so this option suits us.
What do you need
Now tell you what ingredients we need to make a cake with fish and potatoes. It will take: half a cup of fresh milk, the same amount of potato broth (the potato itself is not needed), 400 grams of wheat flour, a pack of yeast, 50 milliliters of vegetable oil, three cans of canned tuna (if the cans are too large, you can get by with two) about 50 grams, 100 grams of hard cheese, onions, herbs and various kinds of spices for fish.
The process of creating a culinary masterpiece
Now we start to cook our pie with fish and potatoes. Since we do not need the potato itself, it is necessary to boil it in advance and pour the water into a glass. Next, cool the broth a little, add salt, yeast, some sugar. Stir until dissolved and add pre-sifted and refined flour.Immediately add all is not recommended, pour portions and thoroughly stir. To make the dough even softer, you can add a small amount of vegetable oil. After that, we postpone it and give rest for about 10 minutes.
Now prepare the filling. To do this, we drain all the liquid from tuna, since we do not need it. Knead it with a fork and add finely chopped onions, herbs and grated cheese. All the ingredients are mixed and poured to the mass of sour cream. The pie filling is also ready. Now we begin to combine.
Cooking a cake
Bake a cake with fish and potatoes is recommended in the pan. Pour there a small amount of vegetable oil and lay out a layer of dough. So that the filling does not flow out, we make small sides. In the middle lay out the prepared in advance stuffing, close the top with another layer of dough.
