I don’t eat prawns, so it’s very difficult to cook something you don’t really eat and enjoy. At the same time it’s not fair to others at home. I decided to buy some prawns and give it a bash and though I’ve collected lots of prawn recipes I thought I’d start with a very simple basic one, after my brother had to show me how to devein and clean them 😊. The Olive Oil and Lime Prawns was well received and enjoyed.
Extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup lime juice
1 head of garlic chopped
Salt and pepper
1 tsp crushed chili flakes
Peel and devein prawns keeping shells and head.
Marinate the prawns in the lime juice, garlic and olive for 30 minutes.
Add crushed chili flakes. Grill for about 10 minutes, turn over brush with garlic butter sauce and gill till cooked.
Drizzle with more olive oil and lime juice and serve with extra butter sauce.
