Preparation

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry to scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Fit into 9-inch (23 cm) quiche dish or pie plate. Trim edge to 1-inch (2.5 cm) overhang. Fold inside rim; flute edge if using pie plate. Prick all over with fork. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Line pie shell with foil; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in bottom third of 400°F (200°C) oven until rim is light golden, about 15 minutes. Remove weights and foil; let cool on rack.

Filling: In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry mushrooms, onion, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut shrimp in half lengthwise; add to pan and cook, stirring, until pink, about 3 minutes. Let cool. Add sliced green onions and dill to pan. Spoon into pastry shell.

In bowl, whisk eggs with cream; pour over filling. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until knife inserted in centre comes out clean, about 35 minutes. Let cool on rack for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool for 30 minutes. Refrigerate until cold. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Reheat in 350°F/180°C oven for 20 minutes.) Sprinkle with dill.
