Quiche aux Fruits de Mer looks fantastic when served hot and tastes simply delicious! It is the dish that is perfect for entrées and tastes best together with a delicious cream mushroom soup.
I explained how to make pastry in my previous recipe of the Quiche au Camembert or Camembert Cheese Quichet. So I followed those pastry instructions when making this quiche, too.
A quiche is a French tart or pie that is straight sided and open faced. A quiche is a mixture of cream and bacon, cheese and milk, tomatoes and onions, prawns, crabs or anything else combined with eggs, poured into a pastry shell and baked in an oven until it puffs and browns.

To make pastry, use the instructions in the Quiche au Camembert recipe.
Prepare Pastry Shell
Take the dough that you've got in Step 1 out of the fridge. Shape it into a shell.
Bake Pastry Shell
Preheat oven to 375 °F / 180 °C. Roll out pastry, place it on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for 5-7 minutes.
Cook Shallots and Shrimp
Cook shallots in the butter for 1-2 minutes over the moderate heat until they have become tender. Also, add shrimp and stir gently for another 2 minutes. Put out the ready shrimp and shallots on a plate.
Prepare Cream Mixture
Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl, add cream, tomato paste, Swiss cheese, dry white vermouth, salt and pepper. Mix everything together.
Add mixture to shell
Meanwhile, pour the cream mixture along with shrimp into the pastry shell.
Preheat the oven to 375 °F / 180 °C. Place the Quiche aux Fruits de Mer into the preheated oven and bake it for 15 minutes. The quiche will become puffed and browned. Then reduce the temperature to 300 °F / 150 °C for another 10-15 minutes.
