  1. Preheat oven on broiler setting. With a sharp knife, remove tails from prawns and butterfly them from the underside. Arrange prawns on broiler pan.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt butter with garlic and lemon juice. Pour 1/4 butter mixture in a small bowl and brush onto prawns. Sprinkle all the prawns with parmesan cheese.
  3. Place broiler pan on top rack and broil prawns for 4-5 minutes or until done. Serve with remaining butter mixture for dipping.
