Ingredients

  • 10 ounces salmon filet skinless; or smoked salmon, or mix
  • 1 pound frozen spinach thawed and drained
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 small bunch dill weed ~ 1/4 cup chopped
  • 1/4 cup French's Dijon mustard
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • frozen phyllo dough ~6 sheets; thawed overnight in the fridge

Instructions

  1. Cut the salmon into small cubes and set aside. If using some smoked salmon, leave a few thin strips to use as decoration. Squeeze out as much liquid from the thawed spinach as you can.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion and minced garlic and cook until soft. Add drained spinach, stir and cook for a few more minutes.
  3. Take off heat and add sour cream, lemon juice and zest, beaten eggs, chopped dill and French's Dijon mustard to the skillet and combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease a muffin pan.
  5. Unwrap the phyllo dough. Cut into squares and place into muffin pan; 4 layers per cavity. You can use cooking spray or brush melted butter between layers. Tuck in or trim off any overhang to prevent burning.
  6. Divide the cut salmon between the phyllo mini crusts and press down lightly. Fill spinach-egg mixture over top. Decorate with a salmon ribbon rose (rolled up strip of smoked salmon).
  7. Bake mini quiches for 30 minutes until golden. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then serve or transfer to wire rack to cool fully.
  8. Store leftovers covered in the fridge. Phyllo crusts will soften, but turn crispy again when reheated in the oven.
