It’s Our Summer Seafood Recipe Round-Up!

As you might expect, the Skipper Otto team ends up cooking and eating a lot of Canadian sustainable seafood. You might even say we’re experts on what makes a fantastic seafood recipe. We thought we’d share some of the recipes we’re loving this month so you can take advantage of our diligent research. We hope you enjoy, and please share your favourite seafood recipe for your Skipper Otto seafood with us too! We’re always ready and willing to try recipes that our members share with us, like the ceviche and grilled scallops recipes shared to us by our member Emily De Sousa in Hamilton (thanks @seasidewithemily)!

Salmon Mini Quiches

Salmon Mini-Quiche

We originally shared this seafood recipe for Mothers’ Day, but we love it anytime!

Ingredients & Equipment:

  • 1 muffin tray
  • 12 muffin wrappers, or, well-greased pan
  • 200g lox, smoked, candied or cooked salmon
  • 1 doz eggs
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 10 tsp cream cheese (or ricotta, goat’s cheese, cottage cheese – any light cheese you love)
  • ½ minced red onion
  • 4 tbsp chopped capers
  • 3 tbsp chopped dill (or 2 tbsp dried)
  • salt and pepper to taste (whatever you would add in scrambled eggs)


  1. Preheat oven to 350f. Whisk together eggs, coconut milk, salt and pepper
  2. Chop onions, capers and dill
  3. Start with salmon. Rip fish into bite sized pieces and place in muffin cups.
  4. Add 1-2 tsp of cheese you chose
  5. To each cup, add a pinch of onion, caper and dill
  6. Pour egg mixture over top, as high as you can without spilling
  7. Place in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, until the edges start to brown
  8. Mini-quiches will look beautifully fluffed up like a soufflé, then will likely collapse when you take them out of the oven. Don’t worry about it! They still taste great!
