Lucky Star Pilchard Quiche

Ingredients

1 x 400g tin Lucky Star Pilchards in Tomato Sauce
80ml oil
1/2 onion, sliced
1 cloves garlic, chopped
15ml curry powder
300g puff pastry
3 eggs, lightly beaten
230ml cream
150ml gouda, grated/feta, crumbled
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1 Tbsp. fresh chives, chopped

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Open the tin and drain the Lucky Star Pilchards.
  3. Heat up the oil in a large non stick frying pan on medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until golden. Add the garlic and curry powder and sauté for a further 2 minutes until fragrant. Add the reserved tomato juice and reduce the contents until it becomes a thick sauce, stir continously to avoid burning and sticking.
  4. While the sauce is cooling after cooking, line a greased oven proof dish with the puff pastry.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, cheese salt and pepper until well combined. Stir in the fresh parsley and chives.
  6. To build the quiche, first place a layer of Lucky Star Pilchards on the bottom.  Pour the egg and cream mixture on top and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the puff pastry is golden brown and crispy and the egg and cream mixture is cooked through.
