This Keto Salmon Quiche is made with leftover baked salmon, eggs, cheese, and a super flaky low carb crust. The filling is a breeze to make, so this quiche one of those extremely easy and tasty keto recipes.
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.
