Fish Kuku

fish kuku

Fish quiche. This is a variant recipe from the New Food of Life cookbook (Meat Kuku, p. 102), also adjusted in size to fit the amount of fish I had. The original recipe called for the equivalent of 1 ½ c. fresh parsley, ⅔ c. fresh chives, ⅔ c. of oil, and yogurt on the side, but since I didn’t have it with me at the store I didn’t grab those. (It’s always parsley; I should have known.)


  • 1 ½ lb whitefish fillets (haddock)
  • 3 onions, sliced thin
  • handful of freeze-dried parsley
  • handful of freeze-dried chives
  • 1 ½ tsp. salt
  • ⅓ tsp. black pepper
  • 7 eggs
  • ⅓ tsp. salt
  • ⅓ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tsp. curry powder
  • olive oil for the pans
