USA Wild Caught Gulf Shrimp Au Gratin.


  • 1 lb 31/40 pd Wild Caught Gulf shrimp (Poached and cooled)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 celery rib finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp green onions sliced, save some for garnish
  • 1 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 large egg yolks slightly beaten
  • 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 tsp Louisiana hot sauce
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Fontina cheese grated


Time: About 30 minutes | Serves: 4

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the onion, celery, green onions (white parts), and garlic, and cook, stirring, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

While the vegetables cook, vigorously whisk the egg yolks and evaporated milk together in a small bowl until well blended; set aside.

Add the flour to the skillet, and blend well into the vegetables to create a white roux; be sure to not let the flour brown. About 2 minutes.

Using a whisk, add the milk mixture, stirring constantly to blend into the roux mixture.

Stir in the lemon juice, hot sauce, salt, cayenne, and black pepper, and continue to stir for another 4 – 5 minutes (If sauce seems to think, add a little water or milk to thin: should be the consistency of thick creamed soup).

Remove from the heat and fold the cheese in half; blend until it is totally melted and fully incorporated.

Gently divide the shrimp among four mini oven-proof casserole dish, or iron serving dishes. Or, pour into 1 large cast iron skillet, or 8″ x 8″ baking dish.

Pour the cheese sauce over the shrimp, and then sprinkle with the remaining grated cheese on top (you can also place a few whole poached shrimp on top).

Bake until bubbly, about 15 minutes, then reset the oven for broil, and broil until the cheese begins to brown, about 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and serve at once!
