The refrigerator light goes on...

Shrimp Mornay was on the menu the night I opened my restaurant. This was and is a classic and deserves a place in almost any menu rotation at your house. It is super simple to make while being rich and creamy. The addition of the panko gives the dish a nice crunchy texture.

Shrimp Mornay


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Stir the panko, dill, and parmesan together in a small bowl and set aside.

Place a large skillet over medium high heat.

Add the butter, and when it is melted, add the shallot. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

Stir in the flour using a whisk. Cook for about 4 to 5, minutes stirring frequently. The flour will be the texture of cornmeal.

Add in the cold milk slowly, while whisking continuously. This will help avoid clumps.

Cook for about 3 to 5 minutes until smooth and thick.

Add the Swiss cheese and reduce the heat to low. Whisk until the cheese melts and the mixture is smooth.

Place the shrimp in the bottom of au gratin dishes or small ovenproof bowls.

Top with the milk and cheese sauce.

Top with the breadcrumb mixture.

Place the bowls in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Switch the oven to broil and cook for another 3 minutes, until the breadcrumbs are toasty brown.
