Melanie’s Prawns in Lime and Olive Oil

TRH Melanie's Prawns in Lime and Olive Oil
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.

1kg prawns
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.

Garlic Butter Sauce
¼ cup butter
4 minced garlic cloves
1 tsp aromat
1 tblsp lemon juice
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Portuguese spice
150 ml cream

Melt butter and add garlic.
Add seasoning and lemon juice and simmer 2 minutes.
Add fresh cream and bring to a boil.
