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.
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!
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!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 10 tablespoons, cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 5-6 tablespoons cold water
- 1/2lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, quartered
- 1/2lb Bay scallops or Dry Sea Scallops - quartered
- 3/4 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
- 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Once the dough is chilled, roll the dough between two pieces of floured plastic wrap until it is 1/4 inch thick and 10-11 inches in diameter.
- 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.
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. and once warm par-bake the dough for 15 minutes.
- Increase the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the quartered shrimp, scallops, crab, shallot, parsley, and gruyere cheese minus 2 tablespoons.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the half and half, eggs and salt and pepper. Pour it over the seafood mixture and combine well.
- Carefully pour the seafood custard into the par-baked dough and sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese over the top.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the top of the quiche and crust are golden brown. Let set for 5 minutes prior to serving.
- Quiche will stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

I love this quiche! Quiche is for me one of the best comfort foods that can also get all dressed up for a party. This is a perfect example of that!! Love!!
Even though I’m not a huge fan of cheese and seafood, I have to admit quiche breaks that mould. Gruyere is a great choice too
Look at those big juicy shrimp on top, gorgeous looking recipe!!!

Though I don´t like seafood, I´m into every type of quiche. They´re so versatile, and this one does look incredibly good!

This looks fantastic. Of all types of quiche, a seafood one will always remain my favorite.
This looks and sounds amazing! I have yet to make a crust that doesn’t fall apart…must keep trying….
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!
holy cow this looks amazing! i’ve been on such a seafood kick lately – i’ve gotta try this!
Love Quiche and yours with yummy shrimp,scallops and crab sounds delish!Would love to try for sure 🙂
My mom request quiche every Mother’s Day, but I’ve never thought to make a seafood one! How different and delicious! I’m pinning this to make one year from now 🙂
Shrimp, crab and scallops in quiche sound amazing! I had never thought of trying that. Yum!
That is one good lookin’ quiche! Love how tall it is. Great recipe for #SundaySupper!
Oh wow – now this is a quiche I’ve never seen before! I love that you incorporated seafood…I definitely need to try a slice!
I am so glad your mom picked seafood quiche. This is one I could really sink my teeth into and keep it all to myself. So different than the usual quiche. Fabulous!!!
