Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using diced chicken breasts, follow same instructions as shrimp in Steps 1 and 2, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and on a clean cutting board, cut into 1” pieces. Follow same instructions as above.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Remove any pieces of paper from puff pastry. Cut each puff pastry square into three evenly-sized strips. Place on towel-lined plate and drape another paper towel over. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    Cut potatoes into 1/2" dice.

    Trim ends off celery and cut into 1/4" dice.

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into 1/4" dice.

    Mince chives.

    Mince garlic.

    Pat shrimp dry.

  2. 2

    Cook the Shrimp

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add shrimp to hot pan. Cook until pink and shrimp reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side.

    Remove from burner. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Start the Filling

    Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add carrots, celery, potatoes, and garlic to hot pan. Stir often until carrots and potatoes begin to soften, 4-5 minutes.

    Add flour and stir until no dry flour remains.

  4. 4

    Finish the Filling

    Add 11/2 cups water, softened cream cheese, and Chesapeake seasoning to hot pan and bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir often until creamy, potatoes have softened, and mixture has thickened slightly, 4-5 minutes.

    Stir in shrimp and half the chives (reserve remaining for garnish). Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Bake Pie and Finish Dish

    Transfer filling to prepared casserole dish. Place casserole dish on prepared baking sheet to catch any drips.

    Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Shingle puff pastry strips evenly over filling.

    Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 15-20 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 5 minutes.

    Serve family-style and garnish with remaining chives. Bon appétit!
