This recipe makes you think of summertime, when the living is easy. Though arguably more time-consuming than many other more simple recipes, this one is definitely worth the wait. With Southern flare and Southern care, you are sure to "wow" your guests with this deep-dish, hearty gratin. Nutmeg gives the white sauce it's unique flavor, and the harmonious bond between this, the traditional taste of a prawn, and the smooth and buttery flavor of fried eggplant gives you the full experience of true home cooking.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggplants (unpeeled)
  • 500 grams prawns
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 400 milliliters milk
  • 100 milliliters shrimp (cooking water)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • nutmeg (to taste)
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Slice the unpeeled eggplant, and sprinkle with a salt. Set aside.
  2. Boil prawns in water with a little bit of salt. Save some of the cooking water.
  3. To make the white sauce, heat the butter in a saucepan.
  4. As soon as it melts, add the flour, and stir vigorously until it forms a ball.
  5. Gradually, pour in the milk, and the shrimp cooking water.
  6. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens, and becomes smooth and velvety. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  7. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  8. Wash the eggplant to remove all the salt, and place on with paper towels to drain.
  9. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, and fry the eggplant until golden on both sides.
  10. Place the cooked eggplants on a paper towel to drain excess grease.
  11. Line a baking pan with the eggplants, spread the prawns on top, and cover with the white sauce.
  12. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake to gratin.
