I happen to have a biological mother who loves to throw parties to her amigas and amigos while I was growing up and she had our private chef prepare and cook all viands she felt like serving for dinner. One of the dish I have always enjoyed is his Stuffed Prawns. He called it Prawns Thermidor I guess because he loves how it sounded? Funny!

I was still little and clueless in the kitchen but I have always been interested in how he operates. Until one day, I could already understand and finally asked how to make them because I would love to make them one day.

Easy Stuffed Prawns

And so when I was living in Chicago, I thought I'd make them even if I was 8,000 miles away. There were times I stuffed them in their shells when I was serving guests but there were occasions when i just baked them in a small casserole and ate everything on my own with some garlic bread. That made a good crostini actually.
