Prawns Thermidor

This dish was a big hit with the whole family! The preparation took a bit longer because of all the chopping we have to do, but the result was terrific!

1/2 kilo prawns (about 12 pieces)
1 bottle gin
2 T butter
1 t minced garlic
1/4 c chopped onions
1 & 1/4 c milk
1/2 bar grated cheese
1/4 c chopped green pepper
1 T chopped celery stalk
2 T chopped spring onions
2 T all-purpose flour
salt and pepper to taste
1 container cottage cheese
Chopped parsley, optional

1. Using kitchen scissors, carefully cut the shell of the prawns from the neck down to the tail, making sure to keep the shells intact. Carefully remove prawn meat and chop coarsely. Add enough gin to cover chopped prawns completely until ready to use.

2. Arrange prawn shells in a baking dish.

3. Saute garlic, onion in butter. Add bell pepper and celery stalk. Add prawns and saute only until its color becomes pink. Stir in flour, salt, pepper. Saute until flour is no longer visible. Pour in milk and allow to boil. Stir constantly until mixture thickens. Stir in cottage cheese.

4. Fill prawns with cooked mixture. Top with spring onions and grated cheese. Bkae at 375F for 15 - 20 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley or other fresh herbs if desired.
