How to make chef Charlotte Langley’s Dilled Trout Quiche

“The Dilled Trout Quiche featuring the responsibly sourced Ontario Trout with Dill is a personal favourite of mine as it packs a punch in herbaceous flavour,” says chef Charlotte Langley. “What’s more, it’s so versatile that it can be enjoyed with a glass of cava at breakfast or brunch, and is still delicious and satiating when paired with salads and sides for dinner or supper. It’s a dish that can be enjoyed around the clock!
