Butter & Garlic Prawns
  • 600g raw (green) prawns
  • 100g butter
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1tbsp chopped dill
  • zest of one lemon
  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pinch of smoky paprika
  • 6 cloves garlic
How to make it
  1. Grab each prawn and lay it down so that it is on its back. trim its whiskers and legs. Make an incision down its belly from the base of its head to about 1cm from the end of its tail all the way through to the shell. Using the tip of your knife, locate the intestinal tract and remove it. Repeat with the remaining prawns.
  2. Mince the garlic finely. Mix it and all of the remaining ingredients in with the butter. You could use a food processor for this or just mush it with your hands until the seasoning is evenly spread throughout the butter.
  3. Using a butter knife or teaspoon, squish the butter into the cavity you have cut in each prawn, making sure there is butter the whole way down the prawn. Set the prawn onto a foil lined baking tray, belly up.
  4. Turn your oven to the grill setting and heat to a sizzling 250C (or as high as it will go). Pop the prawns in for about 15 minutes, watching carefully the whole time. When the prawn tails curl up and the shells are a gleaming, roasted red, your prawns will be deliciously done!
