Defrost the spinach and squeeze as much moisture out as possible. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease a flan dish/tart tin with butter.
Peel the shallot and cut into thin half-moons. Heat a little butter in a small frying pan and sauté the shallot for a few minutes.
Remove the skin from the salmon and cut it into bite-sized cubes.
Mix the eggs with the crème fraîche, fried shallot and thawed spinach. Stir in the salmon cubes together with a small handful of grated cheese.
Line the greased dish/tin with puff pastry and prick the bottom with a fork.
Season the filling with salt and pepper and carefully pour the filling onto the puff pastry. Finish with a layer of cheese and bake the quiche until done and golden brown in about 45 minutes.
The exact baking time depends on the oven you use. Enjoy your dinner!
What is the best way to thaw frozen spinach?
Place the frozen spinach, not creamed spinach, in a colander with a bowl underneath. Discard the moisture and press the thawed spinach into the colander to remove even more moisture.
Can I also use fresh spinach?
You can use fresh spinach, wash it well first, remove the hard stems and chop the leaves finely.
Can I use frozen puff pastry?
You can also use frozen puff pastry, let it thaw first and make a single, large piece by sticking the squares together with a little water.
