Prawn Thermidor is a simple way to fancy up a potluck. Bring a tray filled with rows of bright orange shrimp, oozing with cheesy sauce and a crunchy toasted topping, and you're bound to be the chef of the evening. We've taken the chore out of the dish by skipping the tedious filling from the traditional way of making it. Instead, we replaced it with a cheesy, creamy sauce that only needs to be poured over the shrimp.

The result is still the same prawn thermidor everyone knows and adores. It's got the natural sweetness from the prawns, the richness from the cheese sauce, and a bit of crunch from the topping. But this one's way easier to put together.
