Salmon Quiche

With the arrival of warmer weather, we will eat lighter. Fat-free sour cream can be substituted for a lower fat/calorie meal, as well as egg beaters instead of eggs. A nice toss salad as a side.

Salmon Quiche Recipe

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup almonds, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. paprika
8 Tbsp. oil
1 16 oz. can salmon
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Hellmans
1/2 cup shredded mozarella cheese
2 Tbsp. onion, chopped fine
1/2 tsp. dried dill

For crust: Combine flour, 1 cup mozzarella, almonds, salt and paprika. Stir in oil. Set aside one cup of mixture. Press remaining mixture into bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, set aside. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.

For filling: Drain salmon, reserve liquid. Flake salmon, removing bones and skin. Mix eggs, sour cream, Hellmans and reserved salmon liquid together. Stir in salmon, the 1/2 cup mozzarella, onion and dill. Spoon into crust, sprinkle with reserved crust mixture. Bake for 45 minutes, or till firm in center.

Oh gads, keep it up there :) Anything above freezing this time of year is "warmer weather" ... LOL !

We had a little sunshine today, then a fine drizzle of rain ... come summer we will be complaining of the heat !

Oh ... the quiche was real tasty :)

The food critic called me from work to rave about this dish ... he said to make sure I keep it in my handwritten recipe book :)

That DOES sound good! I have some leftover smoked salmon I brought back from Washington last year and I've been saving it for something special.

Salmon quiche, with a simple salad & vinaigrette, a glass of white wine. Heaven!

Hope you guys warm up soon! We're already in summer down here. We have two seasons: Summer and Christmas Day!

Oh this would be good with smoked salmon.
