My mother-in-law shared the recipe for this cheesy salmon dish. It dresses up convenient canned salmon in a very satisfying way. We enjoy this pretty quiche frequently during Lent. -Jane Horn, Bellevue, Ohio


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour and salt; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Stir in milk.
  2. On a floured surface, roll dough to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to an ungreased pie plate; trim and flute edges. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine salmon, cheese, green pepper, onion, flour, salt and pepper; spoon into crust. Combine the eggs and milk; pour over salmon mixture.
