Crab and Prawn Hot Pots couldn't be simpler but they will never fail to impress. Equally at home as a starter, light lunch or just because you feel like it, Crab and Prawn Hot Pots are original and tasty. If you can get Alaska king crab meat, chunked, all the better, but a good quality alternative like John West White Crab Meat Chunks in Brine works just fine.

to serve 4:
6 tablespoons
extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves
6 tablespoons
sun-dried tomato paste
2 tablespoons
tomato purée (concentrated tomato paste)
½ teaspoon
freshly-crushed black pepper
uncooked peeled prawns
1¼ lb
crab meat chunks
2 - 3 oz
gruyere cheese
2 oz


How to Cook Crab and Prawn Hot Pots

  1. Grate the cheese, peel and crush (mince) the garlic and drain the crab. Mix the olive oil, garlic, sun-dried tomato paste, tomato purée and crushed black pepper. Stir in the prawns and then mix gently through the king crab (try not to break up the chunks of crab). Divide the mixture between four heat-proof bowls, cups or dishes and top with grated gruyere cheese and small knobs of butter.
  2. Cook in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for 20-25 minutes until the cheese has melted and sauce is bubbling hot. Serve immediately.

Buy a French baguette and put it in the bottom of the oven for the last 5 minutes of cooking. It will be hot and crusty and perfect to use for dipping into the sauce.

Rating 4 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again September 07 2014
While starving, I threw this together and had a nice dish done in less than 30 minutes! :) I had no garlic so used a sprinkling of garlic powder and it was fine. I've made it again several times since. My youngest loves helping and it's so simple it is a great way to get children involved in cooking. Wonderful on a cold day when your in a hurry!

I first tried this as a snack lunch for myself when everone else was out. I loved it so much that I then used it as part of a family meal. They loved it so much I then used it as a starter course when we entertained friends one night. This one is a winner and a keeper.

In the 1970's, Prawn Cocktail (Shrimp Cocktail) became a favourite of many people when dining out. So much so that it has now become a bit "old hat".
