This is a very easy recipe for when you want a quick lunch or a starter for your special dinner. It doesn’t require a lot of looking after or preparation, and it’s absolutely delicious. The prawn and blue cheese bake is inspired by the owner of the Chester Cheese Shop, Carole, who is well known for the delicious family meals she cooks. 

The dish also uses Burt’s Blue Cheese, which is made in Cheshire. It has a semi-soft texture, perfect for melting in the oven. The blue veins give it an intense flavour and a lot of character.

This recipe serves 2 people.

Ingredients:

  • 200g peeled prawns
  • 250g blue cheese, diced
  • 150g mushrooms
  • 1 onion

Method

Heat the oil in a frying pan and soften the onions, garlic and mushrooms together. Add the prawns and cook for further 3-4 minutes.
