My new favorite pot pie is this one, a Seafood Pot Pie, made using frozen shrimp and imitation crab.
I used to buy those frozen pot pies, thinking it would be WAY too much work to make my own pot pie. But thanks to prepared pie crusts, it is actually really easy to make my own!
It started with my friend Danielle and her super-easy chicken pot pie recipe (check it out! Danielle's Super-Easy Chicken Pot Pie), and now I am experimenting with all different kinds of pot pies.
When buying shrimp, and seafood in general, I always try to choose the brands that are wild-caught, if at all possible. They are healthier than the farmed seafood. Wild-caught is usually a little more expensive, however, so that is the trade-off.
For the crab, I love to use the imitation stuff instead of the real thing, because it is a LOT less expensive, and in this kind of dish it really doesn't make a big difference. If I wanted to make this recipe for a special occasion or to serve to dinner guests, I would probably use real crab, though. 😉

This recipe looked like it would be delicious, my husband was very skeptical because he has never had seafood in a potpie, he preferred chicken, dug his heels in, it didn't sound good. I made it anyway, he loved it and now prefers it over chicken! I made the recipe exactly as it was written, I use fresh shrimp. This is a keeper! We don't have enough for leftovers, he wants another one....lol
Kristin, prior to baking, can this recipe be frozen, vacuumed sealed and cooked at a later day?
I have never tried that, so I can't say for sure. If you give it a shot, please come back and let me know how it turns out, I'm very curious! 🙂
Made this for dinner to tonight and it was amazing ! I substituted the imitation crab for real crab .. kept everything else the same . thank you so much for sharing ❤️
Oh yay, so glad to hear it! Thanks for stopping by to let me know! 🙂
Amazing recipe, I tweaked it just a bit by adding a couple handfuls of bay scallops and using part of a large bag of medium shrimp (cut into bite-size pieces). And it was so delicious! We will definitely have this again... but for now, we have half a pie left over. For now, that is!
Simple to make, quick, and uses stuff I usually have on hand. I can see using canned baby shrimp, or small pieces of a hardy fish like cod or maybe even salmon, as part of a variation on this recipe. The only thing I need to stock would be cans of cream of shrimp (found Campbell's at Wal-Mart).
We're happy to have another seafood option for dinner!
Never tried seafood pot pies, my husband is very old fashioned - - it has to be peas, chicken, carrots and mushrooms. I love seafood and will definitely try to make this recipe nxt time 🙂
Kristin, I found your group board on Pinterest and was wondering if you can accept us. (https://www.pinterest.com/grabmyrecipes/)
I would be happy to add you, Natalie. Which group board do you mean? I have a few! 🙂
I made this for my husband and it was DELISH! Before I knew it, I ate almost half before he had a chance to taste it. I omitted the bacon since we don’t eat pork and left out the cheese. Everything else was spot on. Thank you for sharing this quick and easy recipe.
Glad you both enjoyed it! Thanks so much for stopping by to let me know! 🙂
You can use turkey/beef/vegan bacon.
This was so easy and fast! I loved it. I used fresh crab and mixed monterrey jack and sharp cheddar cheese. I will be keeping this recipe.
Yum, that sounds great! I am so glad to hear that you liked it. Thanks for stopping by to let me know!
This was not my cup of tea. Imitation crab and canned soup. Enough said.
I totally understand! My kids love this, but if I was cooking for just myself and my husband, and had more time to prepare dinner (and wanted to spend a little more money), I might do it differently. However, I find this is good for a quick family meal on a budget that everyone in my family enjoys. I appreciate you stopping by!
It looks great Kristen! I bought one with scallops and tomatoes so I’d tweak it for preferences. Thanks so much!!
Glad you liked it! I agree, there are many different things you can do with this dish depending on preferences and what ingredients you have on hand. Thanks for stopping by!
