This perfect Shrimp Quiche is creamy and soft with textural contrast from shrimp, sautéed onions and healthy spinach or Swiss chard. The creamy texture comes from eggs, mozzarella cheese, milk & greek yogurt.

Ingredients

  • Start by gathering all of your ingredients. You can use a homemade pie crust or a store-bought one like Pillsbury. Make sure it’s at room temperature so that it’s easy to expand on the pie pan.
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 lb raw shrimp cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups diced white or yellow onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt plus 1/4 teaspoon divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Now these ingredients are a flexible and you can use whatever you have at hand:

  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk – or use almond or coconut milk. Any kind of milk goes!
  • 1/4 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 1 cup finely chopped spinach or Swiss chard
  • 4 ounces lite mozzarella cheese shredded. Or any other melting cheese like Monterrey jack, gruyere, provolone, white American, etc.
  • Tomato slices for topping – any type of tomato will work

How to make Shrimp Quiche

  1. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees F and place the pie crust on the pie pan. Set aside. Mix the eggs, milk, yogurt & salt and set aside.

Serving suggestions

Since it’s a very versatile & hearty dish you can serve it for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner!

I think that when serving it for breakfast you don’t need anything else! However something sweet like Baked Cinnamon Donuts or Banana Crumb Muffins would be the perfect finisher.

If serving this Shrimp Quiche at lunch or dinner you can pair with Grilled Parmesan Asparagus or Calabacitas for a perfectly healthy meal.

How to Store & Reheat

  • Fridge: To store any leftovers just cut them into individual serving slices and place in an airtight storage container.
  • Freezer: Just wrap in plastic wrap and double wrap with aluminum foil. Place it in the freezer for up to 3 months. You can also store the whole quiche in the freezer, either before baking or after baking.

Reheating In The Oven

  1. Set your oven to a temperature of around 325°F (160°C) and allow it to preheat while you prepare the quiche.
  2. Slice the quiche: If your quiche is whole, slice it into individual portions. This will help the quiche reheat more evenly and quickly.
  3. Wrap the quiche in foil: To prevent the quiche from drying out, loosely wrap each slice or the entire quiche in aluminum foil. This will help retain moisture and maintain its texture. Place the slices in a baking dish or on a baking sheet.
  4. Reheat the quiche: The reheating time will depend on the size and thickness of the quiche slices. Typically, it takes about 15-20 minutes for individual slices and 25-30 minutes for a whole quiche to reheat fully. Keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking.
  5. Serve the quiche while it’s still warm and enjoy!

Note: Reheating the quiche in the oven helps to retain its texture and flavor better than using a microwave, which can make the crust soggy.

However, if you prefer using a microwave for convenience, you can reheat individual slices for about 1-2 minutes on medium power, checking periodically until heated through.

Muy Delish Notes:

(Nutrition information provided is an estimate and will vary based on cooking methods and brands of ingredients used.)
  • Place the pan with the quiche on a baking tray prior to baking so that it’s easier to place in oven and when taking it out. 
  • I used to Greek yogurt to increase the protein but sour cream works as well.

    I love shrimp. This shrimp quiche is my kind of dish – high protein and healthy. My family is going to love it.

    First time I used shrimp in a quiche, but it was absolutely delicious. Great texture, creamy but lighter made with yoghurt instead of heavy cream! Lovely combination of flavours! Will definitely make it again!

  3. Quiche is a tradition in my house Christmas morning and I’m always looking for new recipes. It was good and I will make it again. However, I will not cook the shrimp before putting it in the quiche and I will sauté the spinich first. The shrimp was over cooked and the quiche was too moist. Spinch has a lot of water and by not sautéing it first made the quiche too moist.

  4. What’s the difference whether I mix all ingredients in a bowl or layering the ingredients for Shrimp Quiche (De Camarones)

    I just made this quiche this morning for breakfast…it was amazing! I added a few of my favorite ingredients to make it my own. Next time I will definitely add lump crab meat to take it over the top! That’s all I’m saying!

    1. Oh I love the sound of lump crab meat Bobbi! I’m going to try it next time too. I’m truly happy you enjoy this quiche for breakfast. It is truly a treat! Have a great one! XO, Ana
