Holiday Entertaining: Grilled Prawns with Bacon Mousse
- 1 pound 21-25 Shrimp
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese
- 2-3 pieces of Cooked and Crumbled Bacon
- 2-4 oz. of Cheese Stumps from your Fridge
- 1 tsp Garden Seasoning
- Dash of Worchestershire Sauce
Make your own mousse in a food processor using room temperature cream cheese, bacon a dash of garden seasoning, worchestershire and your favorite cheese stumps. Remember to use caution with particularly fragrant or pungent cheeses as they will overpower the flavor profile quickly. Pulse until well blended and season with a bit of salt or pepper if needed.
Season cleaned prawns with pepper, a bit of old bay, fresh herbs, or lemon pepper. Grill or pan sauté the prawns until just done. High heat will produce some nice color on the shrimp.
Pipe or spoon the whipped mousse onto pretzel crackers, crostini’s or flatbreads and serve with the prawn standing up.
Serve warm or cold. If serving warm, grill the shrimp just before serving!
Be sure to bring the mousse back to room temperature if you make it in advance as it needs to be soft enough to pipe as well as to hold the prawns.
Prep time: 20 minutes
