    KellyMac6's Note:

    A delicious recipe for a shrimp quiche. It is a great quiche that isn't too eggy, I have only made it with shrimp but I can only imagine how good it is with lobster or crab. I also made this easily into mini quiches by halving the recipe. Also, the egg mixture can be made the day before and poured into the quiche shell right before baking. Also it can be served hot or cold.
