This is what I call adult finger food. I made this up one evening after the grocery store had these huge shrimp on sale in a tank.

Mmmmmm. Finger licking good! I used 16/20 shrimp and served it as a main dish with some mashed potatoes and avocado/tomato salad. We used the leftover butter mixture to top the shrimp and potatoes :-) Delicious! Thank you.

  3. Place broiler pan on top rack and broil prawns for 4-5 minutes or until done. Serve with remaining butter mixture for dipping.
