KING PRAWNS WITH GARLIC BUTTER
Shopping list1kg King Prawns
3 cloves Garlic
Place the butter mixture in cling film in the shape of a sausage; roll up gently, twisting the ends to tightly compress the mixture. Chill in the fridge.
Defrost the king prawns; they can be left in the fridge overnight or hurried along in a sink of cold water.
Split the prawns along the back, leaving the shell intact on the underside.
Pat dry with paper towel and place on a baking tray.
Spread the chilled garlic butter over the prawn flesh, leaving some to use as a garnish when they are cooked.
Roast in a hot oven for 4 to 6 minutes, depending on the size of the prawns.
Serve with lemon wedges and slices of the garlic butter.
Serving suggestionMy family like a spicy Pilaff rice and a salad flavoured with a horseradish and quince dressing with their king prawns.
