Ingredients and substitutions

Ingredients needed to make a shrimp quiche.
  • Pie crust: I use a pre-made pie crust (shortcrust pastry) for this recipe for convenience but you can follow this easy 3-ingredient pie crust recipe if you prefer to make it yourself. Use a store-bought gluten-free pie crust for a dietary-friendly option.
  • Shrimp: This recipe works well with either raw or pre-cooked shrimp. If using pre-cooked shrimp, adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • Cheese: Use shredded Swiss cheese for a classic quiche flavor or feta cheese for a fresh twist.
  • Parsley: You can use 1 tbsp of dried parsley if you don’t have access to fresh herbs. 

Variations

  1. Seafood quiche: Substitute the shrimp with lobster, crabmeat, or smoked salmon.
  2. Add vegetables: Add fresh spinach (wilted), blanched asparagus, broccolini, or fresh peas.
  3. Shrimp bacon quiche: Cook bacon, crumble, and sprinkle over the bottom of the pie crust before adding the shrimp mixture.

Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 pie crust ready-made, thawed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 16 oz raw shrimp deveined, tailed
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3/4 tsp salt divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper divided
  • 3 spring onions sliced thinly
  • 4 eggs medium-sized
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese grated

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 9-inch quiche pan with 1/2 tbsp butter or cooking oil.
    1 1/2 tbsp butter
  • Roll out the thawed pie crust on a lightly floured surface and fit it into a 9-inch quiche pan. Trim the edges and place baking paper and pie weights in the pastry shell. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove it from the oven and set it aside to cool.
    1 pie crust
  • Add olive oil, minced garlic, sliced green onions, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp ground pepper to the raw shrimp.
    1 tbsp olive oil, 16 oz raw shrimp, 1 garlic clove, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper, 3 spring onions
  • Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until just opaque (they will cook further in the quiche). Remove from heat, drain any access liquid, and set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, heavy cream, parsley, lemon zest, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp ground pepper.
    4 eggs, 1/3 cup sour cream, 1/3 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup parsley, 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • Add the cooked shrimp and green onion mixture evenly over the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg mixture over the shrimp and top with shredded cheese.
    1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If the edges start to brown too quickly, cover the crust with aluminum foil.
  • Let cool at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Don’t overcook the shrimp: Shrimp cooks quickly, so be mindful not to overcook it during the sautéing stage as they will be baked later on. Overcooked shrimp will become tough and rubbery.
