Gluten Free Prawn /Shrimp Quiche - With Homemade Gluten Free Pie Crust#FishFriday

This is my gluten free pie crust with a my own All Purpose Gluten free flour Blend. I have to yet refine this blend recipe so will post it after my perfect trail. This was delicious but delicate to handle, so will refine this by making this blend again then post the recipe. I have used my own blend so I do not know if you can substitute this for other blends.

Makes a 7" Pie Crust
For The Pie Crust

105 Grams Homemade Gluten Free Flour + extra for dusting
60 Grams Butter - chilled butter cut into cubes
1 Egg- beaten - I used half to make the dough
½ Teaspoon White Vinegar
1½ Teaspoons Ice water or as required to make a dough

In the bowl, place flour and add salt. Add butter and using your fingers or a pastry blender, blend into butter until the size of large peas.
Pour the vinegar and beaten egg into the bowl and to combine with a fork, slowly add water a teaspoon at a time. You may not need the full amount of water, depending on your climate. When the mixture comes together in the bowl, stop mixing. Please note that, gluten free pie crusts do better when they are slightly wetter (because the flour will soak up some of the liquid).
Divide the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap, flattening each into a round disk. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes.
Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface into approximately a 15 inch round, moving constantly to avoid sticking. If it does stick, lightly sprinkle more flour. Roll dough onto rolling pin and carefully lift and unroll into the pie plate. Trim the edges of the dough and crimp the edges.

To Blind Bake
Prick the bottom of the dough all over with a fork. Place the crust in the refrigerator and chill for about an hour, or the freezer for about 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180° C. Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and line it with a piece of parchment paper. Fill it with pie weights, beans, or rice. 
Bake for approximately 15 minutes, until the edges start to brown. Carefully remove the parchment and beans and I brushed the base with egg (this i did so that when I add the filling the base should not get soggy) continue to bake for about 5 more minutes, or until the bottom and sides are lightly browned and no longer shiny. Cool the crust completely before proceeding with your recipe.

For The Filling

200 Grams Peeled & Wash Prawns/Shrimps -chopped
1 Large Onion - finely chopped
2 Big Clove Garlic - finely chopped
2 Green Chillies -finely chopped - I used red chillies
½ Teaspoon Chili flakes or to taste
1 Large Eggs - beaten
2 Tablespoons Chopped Scallion/Spring onions
1 Teaspoon Each Butter or Olive Oil
Salt to taste
Salt, Black pepper & Cayenne powder to taste
2 Tablespoons Heaped Fresh Cream
2 Tablespoons Heaped Grated cheese - add more to your taste
For The Filling
Heat olive oil and butter then add the garlic and when the raw aroma vanishes add the chopped onion and chillies sauté till translucent, add the seasonings, salt, pepper, cayenne, mix well, add the prawns and cook it done, add the cream and mix well. Cook till mixture is thick. Cool completely. 
In a bowl, beat egg, add little cheese add this to the cooled mixture and pour this into the baked pie crust. Sprinkle more cheese and chopped scallion greens. 
Bake the quiche in a preheated at 180°C for 15 - 20 minutes or until it is done and toothpick comes out clean. 
Serve at room temperature.
