  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseeds (TRY: Bob’s Red Mill Ground Flaxseeds)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper


  • 7 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup 10% cream (half-and-half)

  2. Prepare crust: In a bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut flour, flaxseeds, eggs, salt and pepper. Evenly press the dough into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350ºF.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare filling: In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and cream. Fold in salmon, peas, onion, dill, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour egg mixture into crust and bake until eggs are set and center is puffed up, about 35 minutes. (TIP:To easily transfer to and from oven, place quiche on a baking sheet.)
  5. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around edge of pan, unmold quiche and transfer to a serving plate or cutting board.
