Florida Shrimp Pie

I’ve done some awesome summer recipes this year, but I feel like they were a little on the heavy/rich side. I thought I would lighten things up with this Florida Shrimp Pie. Now, I’m from Florida and have never heard of this, but I’ll roll with it. It sounds like a simple shrimp quiche, and I’ve never made one before. I have come close with this Asparagus and Artichoke Breakfast Casserole (which I highly recommend!), but it didn’t have a crust. So let’s give this quiche-like recipe a try and see how it turns out!

This tasty shrimp and cheese pie makes a perfect light supper, or cut it into smaller wedges for a hearty appetizer.

The Ingredients

This recipe is simple, and it only has a few ingredients. I wasn’t able to find the Pillsbury™ Deep Dish Pie Crusts at my usual grocery store, so I ordered from a different one that had it.

The rest of the items were also in stock, but I couldn’t find shredded pepper jack cheese. No biggie, though, because they had a block of it, and I have a box grater that shreds too.

The Process

This recipe listed a total of 1 hour 15 minutes, but I had it done a little faster than that:

  • 20 minutes to prep
  • 35 minutes to cook
  • 15 minutes to cool
  • 1 hour 10 minutes total

The night before I planned to serve my Florida Shrimp Pie, I weighed out 12 ounces of frozen shrimp and put them into the refrigerator to thaw in a sealed container.

The next day, I turned on the oven to preheat and set the frozen pie crust out to thaw for 10 minutes as I gathered the other ingredients and began the prep work. I started things off by removing the tails from the shrimp and roughly chopping them. Then I moved on to shredding the pepper jack cheese.

The cream cheese had softened a little by this point, so I measured out 1/2 a cup and added it to my stand mixer to beat until it was smooth and creamy. The pie was thawed by this point, so I pricked the crust with a fork, put it onto a sheet pan, and into the oven for 9 minutes.

Then I began adding the eggs to the cream cheese, making sure each was thoroughly mixed in before adding the next. After that, all I had to do was gently stir in the shredded cheese and chopped shrimp with a wooden spoon.

The crust finished up right after that, so I poured in the filling and put it back into the oven for 35 minutes. When it was ready, I let it cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then I cut into it and served it up. Well, I did snap a couple of photos first, but you get the idea.

So how was it?

Before I found this recipe, I had never heard of Florida Shrimp Pie. Now that I've tried it, I'm in love! It's savory goodness with a touch of brine from the shrimp. The cheese didn't add an obvious onion or pepper taste, but it did make the filling a little creamy. That creaminess went so well with the crisp, buttery crust. A huge plus was that this recipe only has a few ingredients, and they should all be easy to find at a well-stocked grocery store. Including time to cool, my Florida Shrimp Pie was ready to serve in just over an hour. I served it warm, but I imagine you could serve it chilled too.

Pan-Seared Wild Duck Breast with Port Wine Reduction

This Pan-Seared Wild Duck Breast was phenomenal! Tender medium-rare duck breast sauced with a smoky-sweet port wine reduction makes such a special meal.
