Share recipe


  • 225g plain flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 100g white vegetable fat
  • 75g Cheese, finely grated, 25g for the pastry, 50g for the filling
  • 100g smoked salmon , snipped into pieces
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill , chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 150g low fat creme fraiche
  • 1 sprinkle ground black pepper, to taste


Step 1

Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Add the vegetable fat and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine crumbs. Add the grated cheese. Stir in enough chilled water to make a soft, but not sticky, dough. Knead for a few moments, then wrap and chill for 10-20 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat the oven to 200°C / fan oven 180°C / Gas Mark 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to line a 20cm (8 inch) quiche tin. Line with foil or baking paper and baking beans and bake 'blind' (without a filling) for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Take the flan from the oven and remove the foil or paper and baking beans. Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C / fan oven 160°C / Gas Mark 4.

Step 4

Put the salmon, spring onions, dill and Cheshire cheese into a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and creme fraiche. Season and stir well. Pour into the flan case then bake for 30-35 minutes until set. Serve warm or cold, with salad.

Step 5

Cook's tip: use Cheddar cheese instead of Cheshire, if you prefer.
