Here is an easy savory quiche recipe with seafood and pesto! It might inspire you for your next buffet or dinner. You can use either a frozen seafood mix, easily found in grocery stores, or you can go with fresh fish cubes, mussels and crab flesh to make your own special mix. To vary from the classic wheat flour puff pastry, I opted for a spelt flour puff pastry. You can find some in organic stores.
Ingredient list for the seafood and pesto quiche
For 6 people:
- 1 puff pastry (Organic Spelt for me)
- 3 eggs
- 4/5 cup (200ml) of cream
