There’s something about a warm, flaky crust and a flavorful stuffing that both fills you up and puts a smile on your face. And when you shape the dish in the form of an animal, like a fish, it’s just that little extra mile that will make anyone feel loved!

This recipe uses up mashed potatoes along with smoked salmon, onion, and other flavorings to fill a crusty, flaky homemade dough. The latter is super fast to make, and the results rival anything in the frozen section of your grocery store by far (both in flavor and healthiness). Serve this with a bowl full of fresh vegetables or fruit, and you have yourself a filling, from-scratch lunch or light dinner. Enjoy!
