My version Crustless Quiche, salmon, broccoli and a crunchy salad

The other day I entered a competition on Instagram through one of our local foodies, Sarah Graham, and I won! Sarah asked what our favorite ingredient to take on a safari would be and my answer was "lemons" they tenderise, flavour, add freshness, can be used as a marinade and a decoration for the table. My prize was 3 of Sarah's books all signed, her books are filled with quick and easy recipes, just what I needed on this off day with limited stock in the kitchen.

I decided to try the Crustless spinach and trout quiche which is gluten and wheat free due to having no crust but I also made it dairy free and changed the filling slightly to suit what I had at home, the name of the book I chose first " Home".
