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 make Curried Cod Quiche:
Make the pastry
, adding the 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 curry powder and cook for a further 2 minutes then leave to cool.
Wash the fish, remove any skin
hen dice it into bite-size chunks. Arrange these pieces and the prawns or shrimp in the flan case. 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.
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.
