I came across this recipe in an old family book I keep. This dish makes a nice meal. I like that it can be frozen and served as individual pieces — it’s actually great if you’re cooking for one. It makes a great lunch or dinner.
The fresh broccoli combined with the flavour of the smoked salmon makes this a winner. I also really appreciate having made my own pastry. Sure, it’s a bit more fiddly than some of the dishes I make, but on this occasion it was also worth the effort. You’ll need some baking beans to blind bake the pastry but, if you don’t, you can also use dried lentils or some raw rice (not that pre-cooked packet stuff).
