Beloved Salmon Quiche

Adam brought a few recipes to our family when we got married. One of which is our beloved salmon quiche. He made this for me early on in our dating years and I think that's why I married him - just so I could have this recipe!

We opted for this last night for dinner since we had most of the ingredients in the house (having bought them piece by piece as they were on sale) and what a nice spring dinner for Easter (especially since we couldn't find a ham for under 18 bucks - so NOT buying that for the two of us!)

Do make sure you bake the pie shells first on this recipe. Last night we used shallot instead of green onion (because I forgot them!) and it was really nice actually - I will have to have Adam do this again.

I served the quiche with a nice spring salad of mixed greens with pear and goat cheese tossed with olive oil and lemon juice and fresh steamed brussel sprouts that I pan tossed in butter, salt, pepper and Penzy's Fox Pointe Seasoning. Delicious Meal!
