Salmon mornay, oh why will you be another 30 minutes cooking when I am hungry now? You smell divine.
This is a combination meal of two of my favorite foods, Tasty cheese and red salmon served with steamed vegetables. I can hardly wait for it to cook.
Ingredients (serves 4)
100g extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup whole grain self-raising flour (store wholegrain flour in the fridge when not using)
1 1/2 cups tasty cheese, grated
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons plain wholegrain flour (store in fridge when not using)
1 1/2 cups skim milk
415g can red salmon, drained and flaked
4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
Rub oil into self-raising flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and dill. Mix with hands until it comes together to form a dough. Shape into a small rectangle, wrap in greaseproof paper and place into the freezer for 30 minutes or until firm.
Preheat oven to 200°C. Melt remaining butter in a saucepan over high heat. Add plain flour and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and slowly add milk, stirring constantly. Return to heat and stir over medium-high heat until sauce comes to the boil.
Add remaining cheese. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Stir salmon and egg into sauce. Season. Spoon into 4 x 3/4-cup capacity or 1 x 4-cup ovenproof baking dish.
Remove dough from freezer and grate. Sprinkle over mornay. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until top is hot and golden.
