Have you ever heard of cod fish quiche?

Then today is a good day to discover something different and at the same time very tasty!

I'm going to give you a recipe for cod quiche which, as I said, is wonderful. This is because the quiche has a very creamy consistency and at the same time a diversity of flavors.

The quiche is like a masterpiece, starting with its dough very crunchy and tasty at the same time. Next, we have the filling and this is where many fail, because the filling of a quiche must be very balanced, neither too creamy nor too dry.

And finally the quiche topping, which gives this recipe its distinctive creaminess.

When we talk about cod quiche, we have to talk about the cod we use to make this dish. Thus, the cod we should use should be of medium quality so that we can shred it into fine chips and maintain its delicious taste.

One of the secrets of this dish is undoubtedly the quality of the cod and the filling of the quiche, because without these two well-prepared components the quiche won't be good.

The history of quiche

When we talk about quiche recipes, we have to go back in time to its history... Well, quiche is an original French recipe, more precisely from the Alsace Lorraineis located in the north-east of France, bordering Germany.

The original quiche was an open pie filled with bacon, sour cream and eggs. Nowadays, we find quiches with different types of filling, such as chicken, vegetables, spinach, cod, minced meat, mushrooms and many other variations.

Today this dish is famous all over the world because it is tasty, creamy and ideal to serve on any occasion.

The fame of quiche arose at the end of the Second World War, initially in the UK and later in the 1950s in the USA, and then spread all over the world.

Why this recipe works

  • Quickly. It's quick and easy to make, and great for feeding lots of people!
  • Versatile. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or cut the quiche into small slices and serve it as a snack.
  • Customizable. You can customize it by adding your choice of meat, vegetables, etc.
  • Convenient. It can be prepared the day before and also frozen if necessary.

Ingredients you will need

Main Ingredients:

  1. Wheat flourWheat flour should be unleavened.
  2. ButterI usually use salted butter because it gives the dough a special flavor.
  3. Natural yogurt: I recommend using any brand of natural yogurt.
  4. EggsI usually use medium eggs so it's not too big and the dough doesn't get soft.
  5. Grated ParmesanI use any brand of grated Parmesan to add a special touch to the pasta, but I recommend that you buy whatever you find in the market.
  6. Olive oilI like to use it to make quiche recipes. Gallo extra virgin olive oilbecause it's better quality than inferior oils. If you don't want to use olive oil, you can replace it with oil.
  7. Cod fishI usually buy desalted cod which makes it easier to prepare the quiche recipe. Alternatively, you can buy salted cod and desalt it yourself.
  8. Milk cream: I like to buy cream that has an amount of fat from 30%
  9. mozzarella cheeseI use grated cheese because it's more for a homogeneous mixture in the quiche topping.
  10. Cream cheeseI recommend using Philadelphia cream cheese, or alternatively making it yourself. Curd Creamy Homemade.

How to make cod quiche

Although this dish is relatively simple to make, it goes through 4 stages, namely:

  • Dough
  • Filling
  • Topping
  • Mounting

When you make a cod quiche, the cod doesn't have to be high quality, it just needs to be medium or even thin slices, because the cod will be shredded, so there's no point in spending a lot of money on high slices of cod, which are much more expensive.

Preparing the Dough (Part I)

The preparation of quiche dough It's simple: mix all the ingredients together and knead with your fingertips (very important) until you get a soft, elastic dough. This process can take between 10 and 20 minutes, but it will depend on each case.

When it's ready, wrap it in plastic wrap and leave it to rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.

Preparing the Filling (Part II)

Today I'm going to make a cod quiche, so the filling is cod, but... if you want to make a quiche with another filling you can do so without any problem. Some examples are: 

Chicken, ham, minced meat, tuna, spinach, etc...

In first placesauté the onion and garlic in the hot oil until they are transparent.

Second, then mix the shredded cod, check the salt and seasonings. Add the chopped parsley, mix again for a few more minutes and remove from the heat.

Quiche Assembly (Part IV)

First, Slowly roll out the dough and line the bottom and sides of the removable tin.
