Good ol’ French style ‘comfort food’, great to eat in any season, perfect in the winter. Sample a crisp, fruity white wine while the aromas draw your family in for supper.


2 cups (500 mL) green beans, trimmed and halved
2 cups (500 mL) cooked, long grain brown or white rice
2 cans (213 g each) Clover Leaf Sockeye Salmon, drained
2 hard boiled eggs, peeled and chopped
2 cups (500 mL) milk
2 tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp (30 mL) white wine or chicken broth
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each finely grated lemon zest, salt and pepper
3/4 cup (175 mL) fresh bread crumbs
1 tbsp (15 mL) melted butter



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C) . Blanch the green beans in a large pot of salted, boiling water for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold running water until cool. Drain well. Spread the rice evenly in the bottom of a buttered, 8 cup (2 L) casserole dish. Remove the skin and bones from the salmon (if desired) and scatter the chunks evenly over the rice. Layer the eggs and blanched green beans over the salmon.
  2. Whisk the milk with the cornstarch. Heat in the microwave for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until steaming; stop twice to stir. Whisk the egg yolk with the wine or chicken broth. Stir some of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture; then stir the yolk mixture back into the remaining milk mixture. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened; stop to stir every 30 seconds. Stir in the lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  3. Spread the sauce evenly over the beans. (Casserole may be prepared up to this point and reserved for 1 day covered, in the refrigerator.) Toss the breadcrumbs with the butter; sprinkle evenly over the casserole. Cover and bake the casserole for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Uncover and broil for 2 minutes or until the topping is browned.
