This is quite rich, but oh so good. It can be made in individual gratin dishes also.

Rich, creamy, cheesy, and buttery, this shrimp au gratin is definitely not a recipe to try if you're watching calories. But, oh my, it's delicious! Super simple to make, it's impressive when presented. The sauce just melts in your mouth and Panko crumbs on top add a nice crunchy texture. Simply divine. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Shrimp Au Gratin

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly spray a quiche pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Stir in the seasoning mix. Add shrimp and cook until just turning pink (shrimp will finish cooking in the oven), about 2 minutes. Stir in the chives. Remove mixture from pan into the prepared quiche pan.
  3. Add remaining tablespoon butter to pan and when melted, whisk in flour. Do not allow flour to brown. Whisk in the milk and cream and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture begins to thicken, 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the jack cheese.
  4. Remove from heat and spoon sauce evenly over shrimp.
  5. Sprinkle remaining cheeses over top and then sprinkle Panko evenly over that. LIGHTLY spray Panko with cooking spray to help brown.
  6. Place in oven and bake 15 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Serve over rice or pasta.
