The crust for this keto quiche is simple to make. It’s buttery, yet crispy on the edges and soft enough to make it easy to serve.

Keto Salmon Quiche Filling Ingredients 

The ingredients are super low carb and common in a keto diet. You’ll need a few eggs, heavy cream, and some cheese for richness and depth of flavor. Here are the other ingredients for the salmon quiche: 

  • Salmon – To make this salmon pie, I used leftover baked salmon, and it turned out fantastic. This way, the overall cooking time is smaller than with raw salmon. Although this quiche has a fantastic flavor with either raw salmon or smoked salmon. Just adapt the baking time until the quiche is cooked through. 
  • Onion or Leeks – Leeks add a delicate flavor, but using onion tastes fantastic as well. 
  • Asparagus – optional, I like it for added texture and aesthetics (without it, the quiche is just all yellow and pink!)
  • Dill or Parsley – Dill is the best pair for salmon, but when I baked this pie, I hadn’t any, so I used Parsley and green onion. It is a delicious combo. You can also add chives and substitute the onion with shallots. 
  • Heavy Whipping Cream and Water – Usually, a quiche filling is made with eggs and milk. To make keto milk, I combine heavy cream and water. Super silky and delicious! To make a paleo quiche substitute heavy cream with coconut cream.

Salmon Quiche Filling

  • 8 oz. salmon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill finely chopped
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • ½ cup Whipping Cream
  • ½ cup Water
  • ¼ cup parmesan
  • ½ cup shredded cheese
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F / 175°C and grease a 10-inch pie pan. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, add all the pie crust ingredients. Pulse until the mixture starts to look like a dough ball.
  • Transfer the pie crust dough to the greased pan, and using your (oiled) fingers, press the dough into the pie pan. Poke holes into the bottom of the crust using a fork. Bake the crust for 10–12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Once ready, let the crust cool down for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small skillet, sauté the onion in butter until fragrant and translucent.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cheese, whipping cream, water, salt, and pepper.
  • Spread the cooked onion and fresh dill (or parsley) onto the baked pie crust. Add the flaked salmon and pour the egg mixture.
  • Bake the quiche for 45-50 minutes or until the top is firm. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve this salmon pie with a dollop of cream cheese, fresh dill, and a salad.
