    Kookaburra's Note:

    These are tastier than anything I've ever eaten in a restaurant, and, better still, can be made a few hours ahead of your guests arriving. The recipe can be easily adjusted to feed less or more as required. The quantities given here are for a main course. I would normally serve this with steamed rice. This recipe is adapted from English food writer, Delia Smith.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove prawn heads and peel prawns, leaving tails intact.
    2. 2
      'Butterfly' prawns by turning them on to their backs and, working from the tail, use a small, sharp knife to slit them almost in half lengthwise.
    3. 3
      Press down lightly with your hand to flatten them slightly.
    4. 4
      Remove and discard the 'vein' located along the length of the cut.
    5. 5
      Place the prawns in a single layer into a buttered baking dish.
    6. 6
      Now, simply combine the melted butter, garlic, lemon rind and juice, 1 tablespoon of the chopped parsley and a good pinch or two of black pepper and pour evenly over the prawns in the baking dish.
    7. 7
      At this stage, the dish can be covered with plastic wrap and kept in the fridge until you are ready to cook it.
    8. 8
      To cook, preheat oven to 230°C (450°F).
    9. 9
      Place the baking dish on the highest shelf of the oven.
    10. 10
      Cook prawns for 5-8 minutes, or until pink.
    11. 11
      The prawns will take more like 7-8 minutes to cook if they have been prepared earlier and chilled.
    12. 12
      To serve, sprinkle lightly with salt and with the reserved parsley.

      I cooked this dish. It was real easy to do. I added a little Chilli to give Extra kick. And sprinkled a little Cheddar on top when serving.
      Wow it was so delicious. And My guest wanted more. I will be doing this again For one of Parties. And putting it on my menu.

      This was a wonderful dinner! I made it as posted, would not change a thing! I made some extra garlic butter and drizzled it over canned artichokes which I roasted in a separate dish at the same time. Served everything over parmesan orzo, absolutely delicious!

      This is simple, quick and delish. I had to use part olive oil and part butter. Added a very quick dash of white wine (Chardonnay). The lemon flavouring did take me a bit of getting used to but it worked out fine. Delish.
