This is one of my favorite ways to have shrimp! The weather hasn't been the best lately as it has been raining, so I made these on a skillet instead of the grill and were still just as delicious. One the things I did a little differently was to use the juice of 1 lemon instead of 3, and found it was the perfect amount of acidity to balance the dish out.
Neither my DH or I could eat this. Shrimp is my favorite food, so I was sad to see it all go to waste. I'm not sure if it's a typo in the recipe, but the juice of three lemons is WAY too much. My DH said it was like eating a lemon...he took one bite and couldn't eat any more. Also, the hot butter cooked the shrimp, not the grill. By the time I grilled them, they were way overdone. Sorry, I won't make this again.
This was AWESOME!!! I actually cooked it in an iron skillet then placed them on a baking sheet and put them under the broiler for just a bit. When the weather is nice I'll definitely be putting them on the grill! Served them with a baked potato and salad. Also made a red sauce as suggested in one of the reviews for this recipe (3/4 cup ketchup and lots of horseradish.) YUM!!! Thank you!
And the heavens opened and said Thou shalt not BBQ tonight! I followed the recipe but in the last minute panfried the prawns - They are heavenly. We loved them and will definately make these again The tang of lemon with the garlic enhanced the flavor of the prawns Thanks bratty for a "do again" recipe - It has gone right into my fish seafood cookbook
