Fish and Broccoli Quiche

Quiche is one of the food that I discovered during my Uni years. Its its very rich and hearty meal that I will choose if served in my cafeteria in Anglesea Building. Lately I've been missing my Uni years and i found a recipe book that stashed in Sijangkang. Upon browsing I feel an urged to bake this quiche so I can get over this feeling.

So here it is:
