SHRIMP STACKED CROISSANT – Sometimes in life you find yourself in a place here you just want to indulge in something incredible that is not your normal run of the mill sandwich. This prawn stacked croissant most definitely ticks all the boxes!
But How Do You Make It?
It really is as simple as it can be!
Firstly, preheat your grill to roughly 350-450 °F and make sure that you have set it up for direct cooking. Coat the prawns with some butter and season with Island Thyme Carabique seasoning. We have added tarragon and lemon zest in the past to make it even more delicious. If you cannot get hold of this particular seasoning, then of course substitute for a seasoning of your choice. Remember to remove the black line from the top of the shrimps before cooking. The black line is nasty, and you don’t want it spoiling the look and absolutely the taste of your food!
The prawns then need to be grilled over a direct heat for 5-7 minutes, halfway through the cooking you should turn the prawns. The outside of the prawns should turn a beautiful pink color when they are fully cooked, and the inside of the prawn should be a clean white.
Whilst this is happening, you can cut your croissants in half and give them a light toasting on the grill. Once ready, add a thin layer of butter to the croissant. You don’t want to overdo the grilling on the croissants, or they will turn out too hard and crispy.
When the shrimps are cooked, you can add some lettuce to the bottom half of the croissant and start stacking those shrimps up high! Put the top half of the croissant on, and you are good to go! Some people like to add a sauce to the top half of the croissant, but that is all down to what you do and don’t like!
As you can see, this recipe is incredibly straightforward. After all, it’s just shrimps inside a croissant. You can take this up as many levels as you like. If you love cheese, then a gentle sprinkling of Parmesan can work nicely to enhance the flavors. Alternatively, grill some asparagus coated lightly in olive oil and serve it as a side.
