If you're not certain, it's pronounced "keesh" (I've heard it pronounced "kweesh" and "kwitch" before now - both of which are wrong!)!

A quiche is an oven-baked dish made with eggs and milk or cream in a pastry crust that does not include a pastry covering. Curried Cod Quiche is a wonderful way to serve fresh fish and prawns with just a slight tang of spice. It makes a delicious meal with just a few fresh green beans. Or you can let it go cold and snack on it - it's just as good!

How to Cook Curried Cod Quiche

  1. Make the pastry, adding the level tablespoon of curry powder to the flour in the bowl. Roll the pastry out and use it to line an 8" (20cm) flan dish. Melt the butter in a pan and gently fry the onion pieces until they are soft (about 5 minutes). Stir in the 2 teaspoons of curry powder and cook for a further 2 minutes then leave to cool.
  2. Wash the fish, remove any skin then dice it into bite-size chunks. Arrange these pieces and the prawns or shrimp in the flan case. (If you are using frozen shrimp or prawn, be sure to leave them at room temperature for an hour or two before using since they give off a lot of water when defrosting.) Beat the eggs and cream together, add salt and pepper to taste then add the curry and onion mixture. Pour this mixture over the fish and prawns in the flan case then cook the whole flan in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 5 - 375ºF - 190ºC) for 30-40 minutes until it is golden and firm.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
You can use ready-made puff pastry if you wish, but you should then add more curry powder to the onion before cooking.

Reviews of Curried Cod Quiche

Rating 3 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again April 10 2013
I did everything according to the recipe but my husband left half of his and my daughter, who normally loves anything I put on her plate didn't like it either. I thought it was okay but won't make it again because of the response from everybody else. I think it would be a nice quiche without the curry powder.
