1 1/2 pounds
tiger prawns, peeled and deveined
1 1/2 tablespoons
grated Parmesan cheese
Excellent! Instead of putting it on a pan, try putting the shrimp in separate cups made of aluminum foil. Pour in the butter mixture and broil. The aluminum foil kept in all the sweet juices from the shrimp! Yummm!
It's pretty good!
I can't get enough of these. They are far better than any prawns i've ever had at a restaurant. I make the sauce in the microwave, and don't usually need it to dip them in after. also, i find it a lot easier to make them assembly line style - dunk in the sauce, then flop each side on a plate of parmesan, then put them on a broiling rack. They come out perfect every time.
Bon appetite! I didn't know what to do with all these prawns my husband brought home, and I have to admit, I was getting tired of butterflying all those shrimp, but the result was worth it. I can't wait to make some more. 1/2 as much butter next time though, I had a lot wasted. I may switch to part olive oil also to make it healthier.
This recipe was very easy,quick and delicious. I love garlic, so I added a little more than the recipe asked for, and I put some of the pieces of garlic on the shrimp after I brushed them with the butter for a little extra flavor. I didn't eat them as an appetizer though, it was great with pasta, and also great w/steamed rice, it had lots of flavor.
I made these last night to go with the Almond Crusted Halibut on this sight, and they were really good. I followed the recipe to a T and they came out pretty raw in the center. I used the Giant Tiger Prawns and I think that this wasn't enought time for the size of them in the broiler. Maybe 6-7 minutes next time. THe parmesean cheese was awesome on them.. I'd even add more next time I do this recipe. :)
I butterflied them stuck them in a grill basket and grilled them. I grilled them shell side up first and brushed the butter mixture on them when I turned them over. The shell cradled the butter mixture and the prawns where fabulous. I didn't use the parmesan and they were still great.
