Pile of Prawns

SlySparkane

"My gal loves prawns, so I looked at all the ways to prepare them with as little 'fridge-to-fork' time as possible. Makes for great 'Movie Night' finger food. There will be a bit of butter brew left, either in the bowl, or on the plate. Onion bread is a good way to clean that up. Serve with a side of vegetables to make a meal of it."

  1. Mix one tablespoon of lemon zest with the crushed garlic.
  2. In a skillet, melt your butter over medium heat. Once melted, add salt, parsley and the garlic and lemon zest mixture to make a 'butter brew.' Mix with a spatula.
  3. Pour the lemon juice over the shrimp and sprinkle with two tablespoons of lemon zest . Add the prawns to the skillet. Cook them for about one minute, flip and then cook for another minute, until the flesh is firm and no longer translucent.

We really liked these. Really quick and easy to make. Great for an appetizer or a main course. The only reason these don't get 5 stars is the amount of butter. It can really be reduced by a ...

Very good. I did everything like the recipe calls for, except instead of sauteing them I broiled the shrimp. Served on top of hot Parmesan pasta.

First review ever! These were funtastic! True enough that there must be a typo and only 1 to 2 teaspoons salt is required - also consider if you are using 'salted' butter. Otherwise it would ...

Delicious! Made it into a meal (as opposed to finger food) by tossing in a couple handfuls of frozen peas at the same time as the prawns, and serving over bow tie pasta. Oh, and only used a 1/2 ...
