Shrimp Au Gratin

Posted on: October 21, 2012

Yesterday we celebrated Melanie’s birthday and we have a tradition here where you get all of your faves on your birthday! So we had fettucine alfredo(gluten & dairy-free),  caesar salad with gluten-free croutons and shrimp au gratin! Melanie loves her shrimp, thank goodness as we love them too! They are easy to make, look impressive and taste so yummy! here’s how you do it:

Ingredients:

  • 6 clam shaped mini-casserole dish or any mini casserole dish
  • 2 lbs of raw shrimp peeled and deveined( I like the 16/20 or 26/30 size but 31/40’s will do)
  • 1 tsp butter,margerine or olive or coconut oil per dish
  • 1 clove of garlic per dish
  • fresh parsley
  • 1 cup cheese shredded & divided between all the dishes( cheddar, mozza, goats or any cheese you can have)
  • 1 lemon divided in 6 pieces

Directions:

  1. Pre-Heat the broiler.
  2. Spread all the dishes with the butter or oil of choice.
  3. Divide the shrimp evenly between the dishes
  4. Crush one clove of garlic per dish or to taste.
  5. Sprinkle with the cheese of choice.
  6. Garnish with some minced parsley for colour!
  7. Place under the broiler till cheese is melted!
  8. Serve with a wedge of lemon or lime.

** I found my clam shaped dishes at the dollar store…SCORE! They do the job just fine and have been for years!
