Salmon Quiche: Your Weekend Brunch

Are you looking for the perfect weekend brunch meal? We have you covered. Our Salmon Quiche recipe is tasty, easy to prep, and even have as a leftover for the week ahead.

Here’s what you’ll need:

FOR THE CRUST

INGREDIENTS

1 c flour

1/2 tsp salt

⅓ c butter or lard

3 T ice cold water

DIRECTIONS

Mix flour and salt in medium bowl, cut in lard or butter using pastry blender or fork.

Continue mixing until coarse crumbs the size of peas form, sprinkle with water, 1 TBSP at a time, tossing with fork until mixture is moist.

Gather dough into ball and lay on lightly floured surface.

Using a rolling pin, roll out dough approximately 1″ wider than your pan. As Chef Josh says in the video, this quiche can be made in a round, pie shape, a big square pan, or whatever shape you’ve got.

Place dough in lightly greased pan and cut .5″ slits in about 6 spots throughout the dough, set aside.

FOR THE FILLING

INGREDIENTS

12-14 eggs

1/2 lb wild Salmon Bristol Bay Sockeye — previously cooked — here’s a suggestion for you.

1 c fresh arugula or spinach, torn or chopped — choice is yours! For a more peppery bite, go with arugula.

½ c mushrooms, sliced

½ c cherry tomatoes, cut in half

¼ c onion, diced

3 scallions, diced

¾ c cream or half and half

½ c cheese of your choice–Josh used sharp, shredded cheddar

½ tsp salt

1 T butter

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees\

Sautée onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, salmon, and scallions in oil for approximately 5 minutes

Whisk eggs in large bowl- add greens, cheese, and sauteed mixture

Slowly add half and half until just combined

Pour mixture over crust, even out veggies and salmon as needed

Bake 40 min or until egg mixture is cooked through.

Cut into serving-sized pieces and serve!

Enjoy!

2019 Bristol Bay Forecast!

Bristol Bay Forecast

What to Expect

A total of 40.18 million sockeye salmon are expected to return to Bristol Bay in 2019. This is 10% fewer than the most recent 10-year average of Bristol Bay total runs (44.4 million) while being 16% greater than the long-term (1963–2018) average of 34.2 million fish. All systems are expected to meet their spawning escapement goals (the amount of a salmon population that does not get caught by commercial or recreational fisheries and return to their freshwater spawning habitat).

The outlook for 2019 is looking to be very promising for another successful harvest. These great return years are what allows us to bring wild caught, sockeye salmon, directly to your door at a reasonable price per pound. While we are still reaping the benefits of the 2018 harvest, we are certainly looking forward to the 2019 season in Alaska.
