My family loves pastry and eggs hence quiches do feature quite regularly on our table. There is always something in the fridge and cupboards that can be used for the filling which is also perfect for sneaking a veg or two. This particular Smoked Mackerel Quiche with Horseradish is one of our favourites.
Smoked mackerel is such a great ingredient to have in your fridge. It is relatively inexpensive, delicious and really good for you. In combination with horseradish and spring onions, this lovely eggy tart will have your taste buds do a little dance. 🙂 Pair it up with lovely green salad or veg on a side and you got yourself perfect dinner, lunch or brunch (that’s why I love quiche, so versatile)! 😉
Some people get put off by recipes involving making their own pastry but let me assure you, it really is easier than it seems. If you prefer, however, feel free to use ready made shortcrust pastry for this recipe.
- I would not recommend adding any salt to your filling as smoked mackerel will provide enough saltiness. Good amount of freshly ground pepper on the other hand, yes please. 🙂
- Don’t feel that you need to stick to the exact amount of smoked mackerel, use what you’ve got. Smoked mackerel has got a very strong flavour which will definitely come through.
- I find it is best to let your quiche rest for a few minutes after baking which makes it easier to remove from the tin and cut as well.
