I have a delicious Salmon Green Bean and Spring Onion Quiche recipe for you today. This Quiche is an all-season dish, as you can serve it hot, just warm or cold.

Depending on where in the world you are, cold weather or hot weather, you can decide whether to serve this minimum fuss Quiche with sides of vegetables or salads. At the moment we are in Salad-Mode in South-Africa !

The crust is quick and easy, and absolutely scrumptious - crispy baked cheese really. Whilst baking the filling will puff up, as is usually the case with quiches, but will settle again when cooling - make sure you use a deep enough dish.

We enjoy this Salmon Green Bean and Spring Onion Quiche tremendously, as the filling is very tasty and ever so creamy, and teamed up with the crispy crust it is a combination made in heaven.

You can leave out the last bit of Cheese over the top, use as per the recipe or only use one kind of Cheese instead of two - I like the two Cheeses mixed up together.

Salmon Green Bean and Spring Onion Quiche

6 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

CRUST:

1 cup Flour
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Butter, softened

FILLING:

1 TB Butter
4 - 5 Spring Onions, chopped
2 t Fresh Garlic, crushed
2/3 cups Fine Green Beans, cut into 2 centimeter pieces
1 can (210g) Pink Salmon, flaked  {leftover Salmon works as well}
3 Large Eggs
1/2 cup Milk
1 cup Fresh Cream  {double cream/whipping cream}
1 TB Lemon Juice
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated, to top {optional}
1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese, grated, to top {optional}

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 160 deg C (325 deg F) - spray a quiche or pie dish with cooking oil.
2.) In a medium bowl, mix together the ingredients for the Crust - by hand is fine, except if the Butter is still fairly hard {use a blender in this case} - a soft dough would form - press into and up the sides of the prepared dish - set aside.
3.) Heat the Butter for the Filling in a medium pan - saute the Spring Onions, Garlic and Beans 3 - 5 minutes until fragrant - remove from heat and stir in the flaked Salmon - spoon into the crust.
4.) Beat together the Eggs, Milk, Cream, Lemon Juice and season to taste with Salt and Black Pepper - pour over the Salmon mixture - bake 45 minutes or until set in the center - remove from the oven.
5.) If using - sprinkle over the Cheddar and Mozzarella - return to the oven for a couple of minutes until the Cheese has melted.

Let the quiche settle for 5 - 10 minutes before slicing into portions.

Serve with mashed potato and side vegetables or with salads and a dinner roll.

  4. This sounds so good! I canned a couple dozen pint jars of salmon this past summer, so now I have another recipe in which to use the salmon! The crust sounds fabulous - who doesn't like a cheesy crust! Thanks so much for the recipe!
