Crab's quiche! or Chupe de Jaiba

Personally I love so quiches are easy and so nice!! This is with crab and you may use freeze crab without problem.
This is a quiche for 4 persons but if you wait more persons you may make two quiches.
Normally I serve with letucce salad.

1 and half cups of plain flour(aprox 220 grs.)
150 grs. ice butter in slices
1/2 teaspoonsful of salt
1 yellow egg
2 or 3 spoonfuls of ice water

Ingredients Filling

4 spoonfuls of unsaborized oil
2 teaspoons of chopped ciboulette or chives
1/2 teaspoonful of paprika podwer
300 grs. freeze crab's meat
or boiled and cut if is fresh
2 cups of double cream
4 eggs
1/2 cup of parmesan's cheese grated
salt and pepper

To the dough, place the flour in a bowl with the slices butter and salt, with the hands mix well making crumbs with the dough, add the yellow and the ice water, mix well until make a ball with dough and wrapped in a plastic film. Refrigerate by 30 minutes.

Now prepare the filling. In a frying pan,heat the oil, add the chives and cook by 5 to 6 minutes. Add the paprika podwer and incorporate the crab's meat and continue cook by 2 minutes.Take out of the fire and make lukewarm.

In a bowl place the crab's mix and add the double cream, eggs and part of the grated parmesan cheese. Add salt and pepper.Reserve.

Preheat the oven to medium heat (180°). Divide the dough in 4 little portions and rolling with plastic paper over it to make a circle about 16 cm diameter. Cover 4 moulds with the dough and spill the crab's mix over each one of the mould with dough. Podwer with the grated cheese and bring to the oven by 20 to 25 minutes. Take out the oven and serve.
