Salmon Quiche

I am a huge fan of quiche. It’s a cheap and filling meal served in pie form- I mean, you can never go wrong with pie, right?

As a weekly recipient of Imperfect Foods deliveries, I often find myself with cheap odds and ends in the kitchen. Thanks to the good deals I now have a ton of smoked salmon in my freezer. No, this post was not sponsored by them, I’m just a big fan of affordable produce, meat, and foods!

Tips for making salmon and spinach pie

When making this pie it’s a great idea to make sure that you keep a baking sheet under the pan as it bakes. This will help to catch the spills that bubble over so that you save yourself a headache of cleaning the oven later.

The quiche will be done when it looks slightly underdone at the top and firmer around the edges. It would register 160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer, (just like chicken).

If you don’t have smoked salmon you can sub it out for a can of boneless salmon (drained) or 1 cup’s worth of leftover cooked salmon- like dinner leftovers. 😉 It turns out pretty great either way!

FAQ’s about smoked salmon and spinach quiche recipe

What to serve with salmon quiche

This pie is very savory and light/fluffy in texture. Paired with a buttery crust it’s a pretty perfect food as-is. But serving it alongside some other light dishes such as a broth soup, biscuits, or steamed vegetables are also great ideas.

Can I use frozen spinach?

Absolutely! Just thaw and drain out as much water as possible, squeezing it out as best as you can before incorporating it.

How to make salmon and spinach quiche

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Take your prepared pie crust and stab it with a fork several times along the bottom and the sides. Blind bake for 10 minutes and then remove from the oven. This will keep you from getting a soggy pie!
  • In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and cook the diced onions until caramelized. This should be about 2-3 minutes. Then stir in the garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds and remove from heat.
  • In a large glass bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in the milk.
  • Add the garlic and onion mixture and stir again.
  • Stir in the salmon, Swiss cheese, and spinach.
  • If desired, add in a dash of salt and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baked pie crust.
  • Top with sliced green onions.
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes until set. The top will look a little soft, but it will reach 160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer.
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
