PRAWNS IN THERMIDOR/WHITE CREAMY CHEESE

I am a lobster fan, and I always love a good lobter thermidor. But you can never eat them all the time. Not that they give you unhealthy levels of cholestral, they are expensive too. Especially if you want to serve them when you invite friends over.

So I've resorted to using Prawns as they are easily accessible and also they do taste yummy too. This recipe was altered slightly from some recipes I used.

You will need:
2 tsp of butter
Half medium onion (sliced)
30gms of green bell pepper (diced)
2 cans of condensed cream of potato soup
200mls half and half cream

4 slices of cheddar cheese
3 tsp of lemon juice
dash of ground black pepper
dried tarragon
half tsp of mustard seed
350gms of cooked prawns, unshelled

Parmesan cheese


Saute onions and bell peppers in butter in a pan, until they are tender. Add the soup, cream and using low heat, stir till it is all blended and coming to a boil. Take the pan off the stove, add the cheddar cheese, lemon juice, herbs and cooked prawns. Mix them well and serve it on individual caserrole dish, sprinkle some parmesan cheese and gratinate in over for 5 minutes.

If you have some cooked rice, you can place a layer of cooked rice before you pour the mixture.
