Welsh Rarebit à la K West for British Sandwich Week 2017...

Welsh Rarebit à la K West for British Sandwich Week 2017.

British Sandwich Week is back for 2017 from Sunday 14 to Saturday 20 May 2017, so Londoners can expect a week-long celebration ‘jam-packed’ with weird and wonderful sandwich creations.

K West Hotel & Spa in Shepherd’s Bush has created an exclusive Welsh Rarebit Sandwich (£13) for the occasion, with a distinct K West twist.

Lalit Bisht, Executive Head Chef at K West Hotel & Spa, shares the recipe for the ‘Ale, Prawns and Bacon Rarebit’ Sandwich. The recipe is simple to recreate at home, for when the traditional BLT is getting repetitive!

  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 100ml Pale Ale
  • 225g Grated Cheddar
  • 1.5 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 0.5 tsp English Mustard Powder
  • 6 Prawns, peeled
  • 1 Thick slice of Brioche bread, toasted
  • 6 Bacon Rashers, fried until crispy and broken into small pieces
  • Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley, chopped
  • Salt and Pepper to season 

Step 1: 

Turn on the grill. Melt 2 tbsp of butter in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the flour and cook for one minute, whilst constantly stirring the mixture.

Step 2: 

Slowly pour the ale into the mix, whisking as you add the liquid. Once the bubbles begin to subside, add one handful of grated cheddar while continuing to stir (always stirring in one direction only) until smooth and creamy. Repeat this step until all of the Cheddar has been added.

Step 3: 

Pour the Worcestershire Sauce and English Mustard Powder to the mix and stir well. Cover and keep warm whilst preparing the prawns.

Step 4: 

Melt the rest of the butter in a small pan and sauté the prawns for 2 minutes, until they are just cooked and beginning to curl at the edges. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 5:

Place the prawns on to the brioche toast. Spoon the cheese sauce over the prawns and brown under the hot grill. Sprinkle with crispy bacon and parsley. Serve hot!
