Here is the pastry I use for my salmon quich below.

A delicious family favourite, great for a light summer main meal or lunch dish.
The recipe calls for red salmon, but you can use pink if you wish.
Pastry Ingredients:
1 cup plain flour
Pinch of salt
90g butter
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp lemon juice
Filling Ingredients:
250g can red salmon
4 rashers bacon
1 & 1/2 cups cream
3 eggs
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp paprika
2 tbsp chopped parsley
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Pastry Method:
Sift flour and salt into a bowl, rub in butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix to a firm dough with beaten egg yolk and lemon juice;add one or two tbsp of water if necessary. Turn pastry onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Roll pastry on lightly floured surface to a circle large enough to fit a 23cm flan dish. Lift pastry gently over rolling pin, lift into flan tin. Ease pastry into sides of tin and press well into grooves. Roll rolling pin over top of tin firmly to trim off excess pastry. Refrigerate the pastry shell for one hour.
Filling Method:
Place flan tin on an oven tray. Drain salmon, reserving the liquid. Flake salmon and remove any bones. Chop bacon and fry gently until crisp, remove from pan and drain on kitchen paper. Beat cream, eggs, salt, pepper, paprika-
, parsley, parmesan cheese and reserved salmon liquid. Arrange flaked salmon over the base of the flan, top with bacon, then pour egg mixture over the back of a spoon into the flan case. Bake in a moderately hot oven 190C for ten minutes, reduce heat to moderately slow 160C and cook a further 30-35 minutes or until filling has set. Serve with salad and fresh crusty bread. Serves 6 as an entree or 4 as a supper snack

I have a crust-less quiche recipe in there somewhere, real nice, and easy. I often make up a quiche to use up left overs. Really doesn't matter what goes in them , the cheesy egg custard makes, left overs shine.

Just make one up. I have a crust less recipe, so easy you just cannot go wronge. Cook the veg, and cut into cubes to put into a quiche, sprinkle pine nuts over the top, yummmmy.
