Seafood Quiche #SundaySupper

Seafood Quiche #SundaySupper Happy Mother’s Day! Do you have any special plans with mom today? Brunch, dinner out, or perhaps a family day at home? 

My mom lives out of state, so if it wasn’t for all the Mother’s day cards gracing the Duane Reade’s I’d fear I would almost forget it nowadays.  I can’t remember the last time we were actually together on Mother’s day (no guilt Mom, none at all :-) ).  However, I love my mom too much to actually forget everything she does for me despite our distance. 

Seafood Quiche #SundaySupper

While I can’t be there to cook her brunch, I can cook it virtually.  This year I had no idea what to make her, so I just asked! Mom, I said one day on the phone, what recipe do you want me to create for you for Mother’s day? It took her a few days, but finally she came back to me with seafood quiche.  Full of shrimp, crab, and scallops this is the perfect quiche to cook up for your brunch today.  I hope you like it mom, I sure did!

Sir Pugsley Now the real question is, will this guy give me a Mother’s Day gift tomorrow? All I want is the chance to sleep in!

Recipe type: Brunch, Breakfast, Seafood
Ingredients
For the crust:
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 10 tablespoons, cold unsalted butter, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 5-6 tablespoons cold water
For the quiche:
  • ½lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, quartered
  • ½lb Bay scallops or Dry Sea Scallops – quartered
  • ¾ cup claw crab meat
  • 1 large shallot, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt and pepper
Instructions
For the crust:
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender, two knives or your hands add the butter – 2 tablespoons at a time and blend until the mixture looks like pebbles.
  2. Dribble in the water until the dough just comes together, make sure there are no dry patches and it easily forms into a ball. You may not need all the water.
  3. Place on a lightly floured piece of plastic wrap, pat into a disk and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Dough can be made ahead of time.
  4. Once the dough is chilled, roll the dough between two pieces of floured plastic wrap until it is ¼ inch thick and 10-11 inches in diameter.
  5. Remove the top layer of the plastic wrap and transfer it to a 9 inch pie plate. Remove the other layer of plastic wrap and press the dough into the pie plate. With the tines of your fork, prick the dough all over.
  6. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. and once warm par-bake the dough for 15 minutes.
For the quiche:
  1. Increase the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the quartered shrimp, scallops, crab, shallot, parsley, and gruyere cheese minus 2 tablespoons.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the half and half, eggs and salt and pepper. Pour it over the seafood mixture and combine well.
  4. Carefully pour the seafood custard into the par-baked dough and sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top of the quiche and crust are golden brown. Let set for 5 minutes prior to serving.
  6. Quiche will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

  1. I’m going to have to make this one for my husband! He’s a seafood guy and just the shrimp and crab alone will be enough to have him swooning!

  3. Susan, you’ve been totally killing it with the amazing brunch recipes this week – I love this seafood packed quiche! And I hear ya on the sleeping in bit. I wake up every morning at 7:00 a.m. on the dot so that I can take my little Abby out of her crate and feed her. I don’t mind at all though – I never in my wildest dreams thought I would love a dog this much. My favourite time of day is holding her in the morning after she’s eaten and she’s all lazy on my lap. I hope Sir Pugsley let you sleep in a little and that he was a good doggy all day!

    • 7am! We’ve got Sir P. trained to sleep until 7:45. Sometimes he wants to get up earlier, but that does happened. I love our morning snuggles too (and also love that we both do that). He was a good boy yesterday, I slept in while someone else walked him!
