Definition of coulibiac in US English:



  • A Russian fish pie typically made with salmon or sturgeon, hard-boiled eggs, mushrooms, and herbs, in a puff pastry shell.

    • ‘If you have a thermometer, you can remove from the oven till the internal temperature of the coulibiac reads 150 degrees.’
    • ‘Classic brioche dough is suitable for koulibiac.’
    • ‘Cut the coulibiac in half lengthwise, then across into serving pieces and serve hot.’
    • ‘Now place the coulibiac on to the high shelf of the oven and bake it for 20-25 minutes until its golden brown.’
    • ‘A further variation is found in the rich shortcrust used for the Russian coulibiac, which differs in being made with yeast, which makes it light and puffy.’
