Yield: serves 6-8

Ingredients

  • 1 14 cups flour, plus more for dusting
  • 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 3 tbsp. ice-cold water
  • 12 lb. small shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • 4 oz. jumbo lump crabmeat, picked of shells
  • 2 oz. shredded cheddar
  • 2 oz. shredded mozzarella
  • 34 cup mayonnaise
  • 34 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped basil
  • 14 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • 5 eggs
  • Freshly ground white pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Pulse flour, butter, and 1 tsp. salt in a food processor until pea-size crumbles form. Add water; pulse until dough comes together. Flatten dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap; chill 1 hour.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12″ round. Fit into a 9″ pie plate. Trim edges and crimp; chill 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oven to 375°. Using a fork, prick dough all over. Line dough with parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans; bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Remove paper and weights; let cool. Reduce oven to 325°. Arrange shrimp over bottom of crust; sprinkle with crab. Whisk half each the cheddar and mozzarella, plus mayonnaise, sour cream, 1 tsp. basil, the Old Bay, eggs, salt, and white pepper in a bowl; pour evenly over top of shrimp and crab. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses and basil; bake until filling is set, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let quiche cool in pan, then unmold and cut into slices.
