Prawns in a whisky cream sauce

This is a very simple combination of a tasty fish dish with Scotland's national drink of Whisky (whiskey is the Irish spelling). It can be used as a starter or garnished with a potato dish to make it more of a main course meal

Prawns in Whisky Cream

1 oz butter
2 oz grated hard cheese
2 tablespoons whisky
1 small onion
12 oz shelled prawns
5 fl oz double cream
salt and pepper
Garnish (commonly chopped parsley)

Butter 6 ramekin dishes. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the onion. Fry the onion until soft, then add the prawns and heat through. Adding the whisky cook the ingredients for a further two minutes.

Stir in the cream and remove from the heat BEFORE it reaches boiling point. Season to taste and then pour into the Ramekin dishes. Top with the grated cheese and brown under a hot grill. Garnish if desired

Serve immediately with a potato or pasta dish of your choice (if a main course). The dish should serve 6

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
