Recipe – Roasted Salmon, Pea and Leek Quiche

I made this dish for dinner last weekend and I have to admit that it was absolutely delicious; so much so that I am going out to repurchase the ingredients so I can enjoy it again soon!

This is a real cheat’s quiche as I didn’t do my usual trick of buying ready-made pastry, but instead bought a ready-made pastry case. I still don’t have a problem with this though as a good quiche is all about the filling in my opinion and this salmon one is a good ‘un.

Now, let’s talk fish. Ordinary smoked salmon would work fine here but if you can get yourself a roasted salmon fillet then I think the flavour and texture will be that little bit better. I bought a kiln roasted salmon fillet that had a dill flavour to it and it was delicious!

How to make it

I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible.

And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
