Spicy Shrimp Gratin

Photo by:

The most popular seafood is cloaked with cheese sauce and broiled until golden

Yield: Makes 6 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1½ lb (675g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Few drops of hot red pepper sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 red onions, finely sliced
  • 3 fresh hot red chiles, seeded and minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup shredded Gruyere

Special equipment:

  • Large flameproof serving dish

Directions

1. Toss the shrimp, lime juice, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl and let stand for about 15 minutes.

2. Position the broiler rack about 8 inches from the source of heat and preheat the broiler. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes, until softened. Add the chiles and garlic and cook about 5 minutes more, until tender.

3. Spread in a large, ovenproof serving dish. Drain the shrimp and arrange over the onions. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in the cream sprinkle with the Gruyére.

4. Broil about 5 minutes, or until the shrimp turn opaque and the cheese is golden brown. Serve immediately.

Notes

Good with fresh bread and a crisp green salad.

Oven cooking

As an alternative, you can bake the shrimp at 400°F (200°C) for 20 minutes.
