Hot Salmon Quiche

Hot Salmon Quiche

Pastry Ingredients   

400g plain flour
200g cold butter, cubed
130g ice cold water

Filling Ingredients   
500g salmon fillet
160g tasty cheddar, cubed
1 onion, peeled and halved
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
4 eggs
70g cream
70g cream cheese
A few snipped chives
Salt and pepper to taste

Pastry Method
Place flour and butter into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 6 or until it resembles large bread crumbs.
With dial set to closed lid position, add water through hole in lid a little at a time.
Knead for 30 seconds on Interval speed. Press into flan or quiche dish and place in freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Filling Method
Pre-heat oven to 180ºC.
Remove bones and slice salmon thinly. Lay onto pastry base. Set aside.
Place cheese into TM bowl and grate for 7 seconds on speed 6. Set aside.
Place onion and EVOO into TM bowl and chop for 2 seconds on speed 5.
Sauté for 3 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 1. Spread over salmon.
Place eggs, cream, cream cheese and chives into TM bowl and mix for 5 seconds on speed 7. Adjust seasoning and pour mix over salmon and onion.
Sprinkle with grated cheese and bake for 25 minutes or until just set in centre (time will vary based on deepness of dish). Serve with coleslaw or a fresh garden salad.

Christmas Tips
This is terrific hot or cold. To serve hot but prepare ahead, pre-make the pastry, wrap completely and leave in flan dish in freezer for up to 3 weeks.
Proceed with the rest of the recipe as instructed. This is really quick if you do not use a deep flan dish or better still, use individual tartlets tins to make a stunning entrée!

Customer Tip

Sarah found that this pastry recipe made too much so it ended up too thick and not cooking properly.  However she has found that if you use the pastry recipe in the Everyday Cookbook the quality is perfect 🙂  Thanks for the tip Sarah!

    Hi Simone- the pastry recipe above makes too much, and it ends up being too thick and not cookin properly. If you follow the recipe for short crust out of the EDC, the quantity is perfect!
