It's been a long time since my last post I'm back and try to update my blog as much as possible..

Here is the recipe for a great prawn dish!


600 g (1,3 pounds) Shrimps with shell
2 Tomatoes
1 tablespoon Butter
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
2,5 dl (1 cup) Double Cream
2 tablespoons of Tomato Paste
1 clove of Garlic, finely chopped
1 Egg Yolk
Grated Cheese
Cayenne Powder
Salt and freshly grounded Black Pepper


Heat oven to 250°C (482 F).
Peel the shrimps and spread them in lightly greased individual molds.
Scald and cut the tomatoes. Remove the seeds and cut the flesh into thin wedges. Place the wedges on top of the shrimps.
Blend cornstarch together with little bit of water.
Heat double cream in a sauce pan and add salt, pepper, cayenne powder, tomato paste and garlic and let the sauce simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add cornstarch liquid and let it simmer for another couple of minutes until the sauce thickend.
Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the egg yolk and a knob of butter. Turn the sauce over the prawns in the molds. Sprinkle a little cheese on top.

Serve immediately with freshly baked bread.
