Another from the mother in law. I don't leave tails intact, personal preference. Preparation time includes peeling prawns. Spring onions also known as scallions or green onions. UPDATE - thank you to Karen Elizabeth would never have thought to use this as way to cook the prawns to ADD to other dishes such as she did with a vegetable stir fry - great idea, thank you. A PLEASE NOTE - I now have a 900W microwave and I find 3 1/2 to 4 minutes does it, When this recipe was first presented wattages in ovens where very low so the higher wattages today will determine the cooking times.
Recipe is originally from the Food Network courtesy of Rachael Ray, but I tweaked it to fit our tastes. Very quick & easy shrimp recipe that's done on the stovetop. If your tastes desire spicy & garlic, then this recipe is just for you.
A delicious blend of flavors, these prawns are not spicy hot, as my toddler was able to eat them just fine. The cumin really stands out in this dish but not overpoweringly. I found the original version of this recipe on Recipes4us.co.uk & made alterations in ingredients to suit our tastes. :)
Whenever summertime comes around, I look forward to making this shrimp recipe on our outdoor grill. I've served this to guests, alongside a nice green salad and a pitcher of margaritas. Simple and delicious.
Note: You can try broiling the shrimp in your oven for about 8 minutes instead of grilling but I have never personally tried them that way.
Prep time includes marinating in the refrigerator.
This is one of the best pasta/seafood dishes I have ever tasted! I know the recipe came from a cookbook, but a friend gave it to me several years ago (xeroxed the page) and the title of the book doesn't appear. Sorry I can't give credit!
I've made it with scallops, too, and it's just as good.
I suggest to use fresh shrimp for this as frozen thawed will create a watery marinade, do not marinade for longer than 30 minutes or the acid in the lemon juice will "cook" the shrimp, adjust the cayenne to suit heat level, I have left the Tabasco as optional you may add it or omit --- this shrimp is very good!
The spicy tangy prawns are lovely served by themselves with some grilled lime wedges but I love the flavours of the salsa along with it.. so either way, it's delicious! Cooking time indicated includes marinating time.
I changed a recipe I got from a cookbook by Giuliano Hazan. This makes a yummy sauce that is great with crusty bread. When I want to add pasta, I usually double the recipe except for the amount of shrimp.
I found this recipe in a book entitled "Historic Virginia Inns: A Cook's Tour" published 1986. It was on a bookshelf at a Victorian mansion bed & breakfast in Meyerdale, PA. This recipe was submitted by the Inn at Gristmill Square in Virginia.
This is one of my FAVORITE dishes. Quick delicious and tasty enough to serve to company anytime! Sometimes I pour extra melted butter with some malt or apple cider vinegar mixed in, over the top of the shrimp before serving. It gives it a very nice flavor!
Got this recipe from a Family Circle magazine years ago. I am so glad I found it, it is one of my favorite recipes and is always a hit!!
Note: Servings and yields are estimated as it depends on what size shrimp you use.
