I saw the show and had to try the crab quiche. The quiche was delicious! Next time I make it I will use a little more lemon zest, use cajun spices instead of seafood spices and add a pinch of salt. 40 minutes was not close to enough time--it took over 50 minutes for the custard to set. I give the recipe 5 stars.
