The Best Salmon Quiche Recipe

Hello Dear Reader,

I love all seafood and are lucky enough to have a wonderful fisherman for a hubby, but there is one fish we will buy and that is Salmon. I love Salmon anyway you could serve it and I love this Salmon Quiche so much, I could happily eat it everyday. It is a simple, one bowl, mix and cook recipe and it is made with no pastry crust so it is super light and no fuss. You can make it in a pie or Quiche dish or as I have done here little individual ones (I have used little silicon cupcake moulds) Served warm or cold, it is delicious. I try and source the Salmon from Tasmania.

Ingredients for Salmon Quiche
To Poach Salmon-put Salmon in a small frying pan, add parsley stalks and lemon or lime slices and almost cover with cold water, cover frypan with a lid
Cook on medium heat with lid on until it just comes to a simmer and has changed colour
Now, turn over salmon fillet, turn off heat and replace lid. Let in rest for 10 minutes. The salmon fillet will now be cooked and easy to flake. Drain well and flake with a fork and set aside until needed
While Salmon is cooking, in a medium bowl,  add flour, salt and pepper and 2 of the eggs
Whisk until smooth

Add remaining 2 eggs, mustard and dill and again whisk until smooth
Now whisk in milk
Finely chop parsley and spring onions
Take out Salmon and flake with a fork
Add flaked Salmon, parsley and shallot and gently mix until just combined. Now gently stir in grated cheese
Pour or spoon into a greased pie or Quiche dish or individual moulds
Cook at 175 C for 35 to 40 mins for the individual Quiches or 45 to 50 mins for the big size


250 grams skinless Salmon fillet 

3 tablespoons plain flour

1 tablespoon finely chopped dill or equivalent out of a tube

Salt and Pepper

4 large eggs

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 1/4 cups of milk (I make mine up from powdered as we don't drink milk)

2 spring onions, chopped finely

good handful of parsley, chopped finely

1/2 cup tasty cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 175 C and grease a pie or Quiche dish or individual moulds

Follow instructions above for poaching the Salmon fillet

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt and pepper and 2 eggs until smooth

Add mustard and dill plus the last 2 eggs and whisk until smooth

Whisk in milk

Now add cooked and flaked Salmon, spring onions, parsley and grated cheese

Mix gently until combined

Gently pour or spoon into prepared pie or Quiche Dish and bake for 45 to 50 minutes for a large dish or 35 to 40 minutes for little individual ones

This is lovely served with a salad and lemon wedges and a little mayo

So, tell me, what is your favourite Quiche recipe? 

Have a great day and thanks for reading.
