DIRECTIONS

  • Put the prawns/shrimp into a large pan and add the wine, lemon halves, onion or shallot and garlic. Add the water to just cover the prawns/shrimp, and then add the Old Bay seasoning. Stir well.
  • Cook over a high heat for about 5 minutes, or until the prawns are pink and cooked. Strain the prawns/shrimp (keeping the cooking liquor for a soup or fish sauce ~ I often freeze it until I need it.) and place them into a large bowl.
  • Allow lots of paper napkins and a spare bowl for the prawn/shrimp peelings and eat immediately with a mixed salad, crusty bread and the spicy dip.
  • To make the dip, just whiz or mix all the ingredients together and taste before adjusting the seasoning ~ we like it very spicy. Serve in a separate bowl or in individual dishes with the prawns/shrimp.
