      About the Recipe


      This Shrimp Quiche or Quiche aux Fruits de Mer in French is incredible when served hot – the taste goes through the roof!

      What Is a Quiche?

      A quiche is a French tart or pie that is straight-sided and open-faced. It is a mixture of either 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.

      This Shrimp Quiche recipe is so good that you will be happy to share it with your family and friends!

      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      Shrimp Quiche knows no bounds when it comes to seasons. Its versatility allows it to make year-round.

      However, I recommend cooking with fresh, plump shrimp as they give an extra touch of deliciousness and juiciness to your quiche.

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      Shrimp, the star of this dish, has lots of nutrients, boasting high levels of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins and minerals.

      Combined with eggs, cream, and cheese, this quiche offers a wholesome dose of protein and calcium.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      I recommend visiting your local farmer’s market for fresh shallots and Swiss cheese.

      Your trusted seafood market will provide you with succulent shrimp, while the dairy section of your grocery store will offer cream and butter.

      Dry white vermouth and tomato paste can be found in the liquor and condiment aisles.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients?

      Yes, of course. This recipe is versatile.

      You can swap shallots for onions, butter for olive oil, or Swiss cheese for Gruyère for a twist on tradition.

      If you are a vegetarian you can substitute shrimp with mushrooms or spinach for a delightful variation.

      You could use mussels, calamari, crab, oysters, your favorite seafood mix, you name it… The quiche will still be delicious!

      Can I make this dish part of a menu?

      Absolutely! Shrimp Quiche is an elegant centerpiece for brunch gatherings, luncheons, or intimate dinners.

      For an appetizer, serve my delicious Shrimp in Garlic Sauce, Spicy Salmon Tartare, or Tuna Carpaccio.

      You can pair it with Cucumber Red Onion Salad or Mediterranean Tomato Salad for a complete meal.

      For dessert, go with my Chocolate Raspberry Tart, Kiwi Pavlova, or Raspberry Pavlova.

      Which drinks pair well with this dish?

      The delicate flavors of Shrimp Quiche harmonize beautifully with a variety of beverages.

      For a classic touch, serve it with a chilled glass of dry white wine, such as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.

      For non-alcoholic options, consider sparkling water infused with citrus or herbal teas for a refreshing palate cleanse.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      Though Shrimp Quiche is best enjoyed fresh from the oven, leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days.

      Reheat slices in the oven or microwave for a quick and satisfying meal.

      Just be sure to cover it tightly to maintain its moisture and flavor.

      Recipe tips & tricks:

      • Ensure your quiche crust is properly pre-baked to prevent sogginess.
      • Customize your quiche by adding your favorite herbs or spices for an extra layer of flavor.
      • Allow the quiche to cool slightly before slicing to ensure clean, neat servings.
      • The steps of making the pastry are the same as in other quiche recipes, so once you master them, you will be able to make any quiche that you want.

      5 min

      Start with Pastry

      Place flour, salt, sugar and butter in a big mixing bowl. Rub the flour and the butter together rapidly between the tips of your fingers.

      1 h

      Make Dough

      Add water and gather dough into the mass. Press the dough firmly into a roughly shaped ball. After that, place the dough into a fridge for about 1 hour until the dough is firm.

      Note: the dough can stay ready to be used for several weeks. Its quality shouldn't change if it stays in a deep-frozen section of your fridge.

      3 min

      Prepare Pastry Shell

      Take the dough out of the fridge. Shape it into a shell.

      5-7 min

      Bake Pastry Shell

      Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the pastry shell to a half-ready state for around 5-7 minutes (depends on the oven). I use lentils as weight to pre-bake shell.

      4 min

      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.

      2 min

      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.

      2 min

      Add mixture to shell

      Meanwhile, pour the cream mixture along with shrimp into the pastry shell.

      25-30 min

      Bake Quiche

      Place the quiche 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.



      When you see that the top has browned, your shrimp quiche is ready. Enjoy!
