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 considerable amount. I followed the recipe exactly and I had at least a 1/2 cup of butter left after the meal was done. We really enjoyed it though. Thanks for posting the recipe. Will definitely use again just cut the butter down.

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 have been 5 stars! (I've been cooking long enough to realise that the salt quantity was way to much)

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 c butter (plenty) and cut the salt way back...only used about a quarter/half teaspoon.

This is so delicious and totally simple!! Only one change...DON’T use as much salt as the recipe calls for – it’s way too much!!! Just use to taste. Also, it's excellent if you pour the oil and butter from the pan over some Orzo Pasta (the one that looks like rice) and serve that along with the Prawns! Thanks for the recipe!!

I've tried this recipe twice now because the first time it was way too salty. The second time I made it I used not even 1 teaspoon. I like salt don't get me wrong but with prawns you don't need a whole lot. I also used half the butter. Other than that the recipe is simple and tasty. I will use it again.
