My children didn’t enjoy spinach until they tried it in this yummy quiche.  It’s quick and easy to make and always turns out looking quite special.  Serve it with new potatoes and a green salad.

2 Salmon Fillets (skinned and boned and cut into small chunks)

1 Red Onion

3 handfuls of Spinach

4 Eggs

250ml milk or double cream

35g Parmesan Cheese (grated)
