Salmon Quiche

It's a variation on John's "Open frig, put in casserole, cover with cheese, bake" dish, and one that for some reason it seems I haven't made since 1983.
We've had company lately, been grilling fresh salmon and halibut and the frig was full of really good leftovers, but for some reason leftover salmon is not my favorite. And for some reason, I was hungry for butter. We had lots of eggs and heavy cream: Quiche.

Buzzed up a nice buttery pie crust in the Cuisinart, rolled it out (enough for a spare crust to freeze for later, hooray!) and lined pan.

Flaked the salmon and halibut, and put it in the pie shell. Topped it with lightly sauteed thinly sliced zucchini.
added a little chopped chives. Topped with grated cheddar cheese (not enough according to Ren). Poured in the eggs and cream, and baked. Put together a tossed salad with pretty purple carrots and celery. Made a strawberry cherry blueberry fruit salad.

It was a big, 10 inch pie, that would have, back in 1983, fed at least 8. The three of us (John's away) must have been hungry.
