READY IN: 24hrs 10mins




  • Mix all the seasoning mix ingredients in a food processor and set aside.
  • Stored in a sealed container, it will keep indefinitely for future use.
  • Blend the garlic, olive oil, 2 T seasoning mix, lemon juice, honey, and soy sauce in a bowl.
  • Add the prawns and the chopped parsley to the mixture and toss well to coat.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 500°F.
  • Place prawns with the marinade in a large, heavy skillet (large enough to fit prawns in a single layer or cook in batches) and place in oven.
  • In about 2 to 3 minutes, shake the pan to ensure even cooking and repeat in another 2 to 3 minutes.
  • At this point the mixture should be bubbling and the prawns will be turning opaque.
  • Transfer the pan to a stovetop, over medium heat and begin adding the butter in 1 to 2 T increments, shaking the pan the entire time, allowing the butter to emulsify into the mixture before adding any more butter.
  • This process should take about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • When completed, pour onto a platter and serve immediately with plenty of good, crispy bread.
