GRILLED GARLIC BUTTER PRAWNS

This is a recipe that one can't go wrong. All you need are some really fresh prawns, preferably large to extra large size prawns. However, I particularly enjoys eating smaller prawns as they tend to have a sweeter taste. Using a scissors, make a slit behind the back of the prawns and remove the veins. For faster cooking time, you can opt to remove the shell only at the body part while leaving the head and tail intact.

For the seasoning, using a small bowl, add a dollop of butter and mix it with finely minced garlics. Add in a tad of salt, pepper, 3 drops of sesame oil and a teaspoon of chinese cooking wine (optional). Give it a good stir to form a paste. Smoother all over the prawns and leave it aside for 5 to 10 minutes. Preheat your oven and grill your prawns for 10 minutes at about 175 degree Celsius.
Best eaten immediately!

I agree, small and medium size prawns have more taste and are sweeter. Sometimes, simpliest cooking are the best, yes?

tigerfish said...

THIS can only be GOOD!
But too bad I don't have an oven now.
Maybe I can try steaming it. I may not use butter if I'm steaming...Hmmmm

Precious Pea said...

Daphne: Thanks :)

tigerfish: Steam would be tasty too...especially with chinese cooking wine!

team bsg said...

very crispy and crunchy can feel the marine sound and the garlicky scent but wonder why oh why many people reject prawns for the cholesterol but gluttonise the emperor pork hand for longevity,

Precious Pea said...

team bsg: Exactly! That is far more artery clogging and waist expanding than prawns!

celine said...

Wow! Cool...I must try this out, simple, and it doesn't need a lot of works.
