bouchees-a-la-reine

This one is a favorite in my mother-in-law’s house and is super easy for kids to help make.

Serves 2 grown-ups and two young kids.

  • Puff pastry cups (you’ll find them in the freezer section at your supermarket)
  • One can cream of chicken soup (the sauce can also be made from scratch quite easily)
  • Bag of frozen salad shrimp
  • Can of white asparagus

Follow package directions for the puff pastries. While that bakes, warm up the chicken soup. After putting the soup on the stove drain the asparagus and cut into one-inch pieces. Add the asparagus and frozen shrimp to the soup. Heat until shrimp are fully cooked.

To assemble, just take off the pastry “hat” & fill the pastry container with the shrimp mix. Top off with hat and garnish with a side of salad.

For the salad dressing whisk together:

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dijon mustard
  • dash of salt
  • cracked pepper to taste

Enjoy!
