Looks like the Enchilada's are it this time around but if you need to impress another time this is a great recipe to make and serve at room temperature and it sure does impress.

Shrimp Quiche (Recipe for 1 but you can multiply it easily)

Cooked Shrimps - 10 medium, cut them further into small bite size chunks
Broccoli - About a cup cut into small florets
Garlic - 4 cloves (finely chopped)
1 Medium Onion finely chopped
salt and black pepper to taste
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Fresh Parsley - 1/4 bunch finely chopped

Add oil to a saute pan and cook the garlic and onions until translucent, add the broccoli and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp, salt and pepper and shut the heat.

Beat 6 large eggs
Add 1 cup of half and half to it
Add 1 cup of cheddar cheese to it
Add the parsley and mixture of shrimp, onions, garlic and broccoli
Stir it all the combine
Add a bit more salt and pepper

Use a frozen pie shell. I like to prebake mine for about 30 minutes and cool. Now pour the egg and shirmp mixture to it and bake for another 40 minutes until golden brown.

Cool, Cut and Serve.

It is an absolute hit and extremely elegant to serve. Seems like work but really is nothing much. The shrimps are pre-cooked and the pie crust is ready made. The Cheese can be bought pregrated so it impresses without a lot of effort.

I love just plain cheese enchiladas with sour cream and a tomatillo sauce and then fresh diced tomatoes on top. Heaven! And lots of people have never had a tomatillo sauce so it would definitely be unique!

How about gazpacho? It can be served in the small, clear, plastic cups.

If you do do this keep the soup in a bowl and keep that bowl in a larger bowl full of ice.

I'm on my second batch this week! lol It's a great summer meal.
