Pot-en-Pot Madelaine Isles Style
© Paula Trites
Pot-en-Pot is a traditional seafood pot pie made in Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Québec.
To make it, soften shallots, onions, celery, carrots and small cubes of potato in a cooking pot for about 15 minutes, then add fishstock or water and seafood (scallops, lobster, shrimp, etc.), and cook a bit more. Then add flour to thicken, cook a bit, then add cream to make a cream sauce, and season with salt and pepper.
Put in a dish lined with pie pastry, and cover the top with the remaining pastry.
Bake for about 40 minutes until pastry is browned, and serve hot.
