Hot smoked salmon, lemon and Gruyere quiche method

1. Line a 260mm 45mm x tart ring with the shortcrust pastry. Dock the base. Chill for 30 minutes.
2. Blind bake the tart base at 180°C in a fan-assisted oven. When almost cooked, remove the greaseproof and cooking beans/rice inner, brush with egg wash to seal the pastry and return to the oven for four or five minutes to cook out.
3. Gently mix the onions with the flaked hot smoked salmon, parsley and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Place half the grated cheese in the base of the tart base.
5. Place the salmon and onion mixture on top of the cheese and evenly distribute. Scatter over the remaining cheese. Pour in the quiche mix. Evenly distribute the quiche mix between the ingredients.
6. Cook in the oven at 180°C for approximately 40-45 minutes until fully cooked and golden brown. Chill.
7. Cut into 12 portions and enjoy!
