This easy Salmon Quiche recipe will be an impressive addition to your next brunch.  So simple to make, yet high on “wow” factor.



  • 9-inch deep dish pie crust
  • 6 oz salmon fillet
  • 2 oz goat cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk or half and half
  • 1 cup cheese (I used Trader Joe’s “Shredded Swiss and Gruyere”)
  • 2 tbsp fresh or 1 tbsp dry chives
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a skillet (or cast iron pan if you have one) sear the salmon fillet until cooked through. After cooking, remove any skin attached to the fillet.
  3. Add one cup of milk and four eggs to a bowl.  Gently mix until combined and add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Flake the salmon and add to the pie crust.  Crumble the goat cheese on top of the salmon and sprinkle with chives.
  5. Next, spread the shredded cheese over the rest of the fillings.
  6. Gently pour the egg mixture over the filling, making sure that it is completely covered.
  7. Place the quiche in the oven and cook for about 40-50 minutes.  Cooking time will depend upon your oven, so start checking for doneness around 30-35 minutes, to ensure that the quiche is not overcooked.
