Salmon and Leek Quiche Recipe

My eldest daughter came back from France and had tasted the most delicious quiche. She wanted to make her own so came up with this recipe which I am going to share with you.

The quiche is really easy to make, and the Roquefort gives it a real bite. The cheeses can be a little pricey but you only need to use a little so you can use them in other recipes or save them for making another quiche. The Emmental Cheese gives it a lovely stringy texture, but you don’t use too much so it won’t be like a pizza.
The pastry you can buy ready made or make your own. I do either, it depends how much time I have. When I make my own I just use a recipe of half fat to flour, so 200g plain flour and 100g butter, then bind together with a little water. I always leave my pastry in the fridge for at least half an hour before using it. 
Then l line a flan tin with the pastry put in a lining of foil or greaseproof paper and weight it down with either baking beans or flour. I cook this for around 15 minutes at 190C. Then the pastry case is ready for the filling. 


  • 1 piece of salmon steak chopped into small pieces
  • 20g Roquefort cheese
  • 50g Emmental cheese grated (you can buy this in packs already grated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 150 ml single cream
  • 50g Chedder, grated
  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • small blob of butter for frying


  • Using a large frying pan melt the butter and gently fry the salmon and leeks for about 5 minutes.
  • Put the mixture into the pastry case
  • In a large bowl mix together the eggs, cream and grated Chedder cheese
  • sprinkle the grated Emmental cheese over the salmon and leek mixture
  • Break up the Roquefort and sprinkle over the salmon and leek mixture
  • Finally add the egg, cream and cheese mixture. 
  • Bake at 190C gas mark 5 for 15 minutes or until it is set and lightly brown.
Thank you eldest daughter for letting me share this delicious recipe, I guess it’s a guest Big Kids in the Kitchen post 😉

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
