This is a dish that can be elegant if presentation is done right that it will impress your family and guests. Sometimes when you plan to cook a few dishes yet you have only 2 stoves and 1 oven, this will be one of the easiest recipe to pop in the oven, when the oven beeps, plate and serve immediately.

Recipe for 1-2

8 King Prawns
6 cloves of Garlic (minced finely)
2 tablespoons of Butter (approx 30g)
1 teaspoon of Italian Herbs (or any Herbs)

1. Prepare the prawns, our tips below.
2. Lightly rinse, pat dry, and arrange the prawns.
3. Pre-heat oven to 250°C.
4. Mix Garlic, Butter, Italian Herbs well.
5. Fill each prawns with about half a teaspoon of Garlic Butter Mix.
6. Grill in the oven for approx 15mins.
7. Plate the prawns and serve hot.


Lesson Learnt & Tips:
- These prawns can be prepared few hours before meal time, cover with kitchen wrap and store in fridge.
- Fresh Prawns shelf life in a refrigerator is 1-2 Days. For longer shelf life of 6-8 Months store in a Freezer. More info here.
- How to prepare the prawns? For ours we are keeping the head, shell, legs and tail on for presentation. To devein the prawn, use a kitchen scissor to cut the shell along the middle of the back. Then use a knife to make a long slit along the middle of the back to expose the dark vein. Pull out the vein. To have the butterfly prawn effect, give a deep cut along the back, open it out and press it down so that it's flat. Turn the prawns over and slit in between of all the prawns leg so it won't curl up during the grilling process.
