Ingredients Pastry case: 10 oz flour 1 pinch of salt 7 tbsp olive oil 6 floz hot water
Filling 7 oz sliced smoked salmon 1 pint heavy cream 4 eggs 1 handful grated cheese (I use an Italian blend) Ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl sieve the flour and salt together. Add the olive oil and hot water, mix with a tablespoon then work with your hands until a ball forms. Add some flour if too sticky. Grease a 12-inch round pie or quiche dish with butter and press the dough into the bottom and up the sides. Prick the bottom of the dough with a fork. Arrange the salmon slices on the dough and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Crack the eggs into a bowl, add ground black pepper to taste (no salt) and whisk for a few seconds. Add the heavy cream and whisk again until well combined. Spread the cream preparation over the salmon slices and place the tart pan in the middle of the oven. Bake about 30 minutes until filling and crust are golden brown. Remove from the oven, let stand about 5 minutes and serve.
"A tasty and easy brunch recipe delicious on a bed of lettuce! You can prepare the quiche in advance and reheat it just before serving. To vary the taste, you can use the same recipe and do a Ham Quiche. Just replace the smoked salmon with your favorite ham! The dough recipe was passed on by my paternal grandmother. She was the first person to give me a taste for cooking. I loved cooking and baking with her whenever I was visiting her in the small town of Ardèche (France) where she lived. " ~ Nathalie
