Salmon quiche is a new version of a classic quiche using canned salmon, mozzarella cheese, eggs and heavy cream. It is fancy enough for a party but is also down to earth and quick to prepare.

It’s no secret. We love quiche. There’s an endless list of our favorites, including Make-Ahead Ham Quiche, Cheeseburger Quiche and Zucchini Quiche.

Easy and Delicious Salmon Quiche

It may be because they are so easy to prepare. This quiche one is no exception. The number of ingredients is small; five in total (not including salt and pepper). Most of the ingredients are ones that we stock regularly.

Quiche with Canned Salmon

We keep canned salmon for Salmon Patties and Salmon Casserole. Frozen pie crusts can always be found for when we have a hankering for Grandma’s Pumpkin Chiffon Pie or Zucchini Pie. Heavy whipping cream is always on hand for whipped cream or Low Carb Chorizo Taco Soup. And eggs, well those are a given. We eat them a thousand different ways including Baked Eggs and Asparagus.

Another reason we love this so much is that you can prep it the night before, refrigerate and then bake when you are ready. Score!

Reason number three is that it can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Pair it with a simple side salad and fruit for a main coarse.

Recipe FAQs

  • You could make this a lighter version using half and half or fat free half and half.
  • For a crustless quiche, bake in a pie pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Feel free to customize by adding cooked onions, spinach or cooked broccoli, or you could change up the cheese option. Swiss cheese or cheddar cheese would be a good alternative.
  • If the top of the quiche starts to get to dark for your liking, cover lightly with foil at the end. This quiche can be served hot or at room temperature.
  • You can prep this quiche ahead in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Don’t put into the crust until ready to bake.
  • Sprinkle with sliced green onions or fresh dill.
