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.

This dish was fantastic.. I loved the fact that it could be prepared in advance. I can see no changes necessary. I had a package of already peeled prawns, tail still on.. This made the preparation even easier. Where we live, quite often the prawns are on sale two for the price of one.. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

Although my DD and I loved them, my DH though that they were too garlicky...but still enjoyed them!!! I only had cooked shrimp on hand and since I was only cooking for 3, I probably had under 1 K. I used 80 gm of butter. I melted the butter and lemon juice in a skillet, added the prawns to heat up...then added the garlic at the end for the last minute of cooking. I served this with sticky rice (to catch all the sauce) and broccoli. I have to disagree about the comment of making this dish ahead of time. The acid in the lemon juice will "cook" seafood. If left too long, the prawns will come out tough and overcooked! On the whole, a nice dish if not high on the cholesterol count!!

For me this is a perfect Prawn recipe - garlicky and succulent. Butterflying the prawns makes all the difference.. I did not bake them but added them to the garlic in the skillet squeezed in the lemon, added the parsley and stir fried them for about 4 minutes - They were perfect Thanks Kookaburra for posting this recipe 7 Dec 08 Made them again enjoyed them as much as last time MM

These prawns were simply delicious. I like the fact that they were easy to put together and the preparation could be done well in advance. The sauce had an amazing flavour . I may try them on the stove top next as it is easier to judge when they are perfectly ready. Thanks for a lovely recipe.

Made these as part of Christmas eve dinner, we loved them so much, we are having them again for New Years' Eve. The only change I made was to use local BC Spot prawns. Thanks Kooka!
