  • Coronation Quiche (With a Scottish Salmon Twist!)
May 6th 2023

This weekend marks the coronation of King Charles III, and as part of the celebrations, the Royal Family have selected a Coronation Quiche to be created especially for the occasion.

As delicious as the quiche sounds, we thought it was missing one key ingredient to really elevate the flavour... that's right, Scottish salmon!

So if you want to add a tasty twist to your own coronation celebrations this weekend, here's how you can:

  • 250g block of ready-made shortcrust pastry
  • 125ml milk
  • 175ml double cream
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • Salt and pepper
    100g grated cheddar cheese
  • 180g cooked spinach, lightly chopped
  • 60g cooked broad beans or soya beans
  • 150g hot smoked Scottish salmon
  1. Lightly flour the work surface and roll out the pastry to a circle a little larger than the top of the tin and approximately 5mm thick.
  2. Line the tin with the pastry, taking care not to have any holes or the mixture could leak. Cover and rest for a further 30 minutes in the fridge.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190°C.
  4. Line the pastry case with greaseproof paper, add baking beans and bake blind for 15 minutes, before removing the greaseproof paper and baking beans.
  5. Reduce the oven temperature to 160°C.
  6. Beat together the milk, cream, eggs, herbs and seasoning.
  7. Scatter 1/2 of the grated cheese in the blind-baked base, top with the chopped spinach and beans, herbs and your flaked hot smoked Scottish salmon then pour over the liquid mixture.
  8. If required gently give the mixture a delicate stir to ensure the filling is evenly dispersed but be careful not to damage the pastry case.
  9. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until set and lightly golden and add a herb to garnish if you wish.
