We have no doubt that this quiche will amaze you!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 package ready-made shortcrust pastry (if you have time, make it yourself)
  • 150 g smoked salmon
  • 1 small bunch chives
  • 6 tablespoons LIMMI lemon juice
  • 3 zucchini squash
  • 1 tablespoon Aulus extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ onion
  • A few parsley leaves
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt


Unroll the shortcrust pastry dough, lay it in a pie pan, and start making the filling.

Peel and cube the zucchini. Pour 1 tablespoon Aulus  extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan, add the 1/2 onion, cook till golden, and then add the zucchini, 2 tablespoons LIMMI lemon juice, 1/2 glass of water and sprinkle with parsley.
Cook the vegetables for about 10 minutes (remember: the zucchini have to be soft but not completely cooked).

Now preheat the oven to 180° C.

Place in a bowl the chopped salmon, zucchini, a dash of salt, chopped chives, 4 tablespoons LIMMI lemon juice, and 1 egg. Mix till thoroughly combined. Prick the bottom of the shortcrust with a fork, and then lay the stuffing in the pan.

If you wish to cover the quiche, we recommend using a second roll of shortcrust pastry, and then brushing the top with beaten egg yolk to give it a distinctive shine.

Bake for about 25/30 minutes (follow the instructions on the shortcrust pastry box), and let it rest for at least 30 minutes before serving.
