Quick Reference

A coulibiac, or koulibiac as it is also spelled, is a Russian fish pie. As well as its main ingredient (which could be eel, salmon, or even sturgeon—and sometimes chicken is substituted for the fish) it contains rice, hard-boiled egg, and vegetables. This filling is encased in a crust of either puff pastry or brioche dough, which is usually simply wrapped around it to form a sort of pillow shape, rather than being baked in a dish.
