Salmon Quiche Recipe

Hi Guys! I know quiche can seem like a scary dish to make, but it is not as hard as you may think, and it's very healthy! This salmon quiche is packed with protein and omega 3 fatty acids. Try making it and let us know how it comes out!


1 Whole Wheat pie crust

1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 small onion, minced

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

6 eggs, whisked

1 ½ cups milk

¾ cup shredded gruyere

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons chopped chives

Pinch pepper


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. On a clean and floured surface, roll out the pie dough to a ¼ inch thick (if not

using a prepared crust) and fit into a pie tin, cutting off the extra dough. Poke a

few holes in the crust with a fork. Bake crust in the preheated oven for 5 minutes.

Once par-baked, remove it from the oven and let cool slightly. Turn the oven

down to 350 degrees.

3. Drain salmon liquid into a cup and reserve. Put salmon in a bowl and remove

large bones and skin; flake salmon.

4. Spread salmon evenly in the baked pie crust; sprinkle with lemon juice.

5. Cook onion in the butter until translucent; transfer to the pie crust and sprinkle

with parsley.

6. Mix 3 tablespoons of the salmon liquid with eggs, milk and cheese. Season with

salt and pepper; pour over salmon and onion. Sprinkle with some extra gruyere.

7. Bake quiche for 45 to 50 minutes, or until firm.
