Recipe: Grilled Prawns with Garlic Lemon Butter
Sometimes simple is best. Roasted garlic, butter and lemon. Easy. The hardest part is getting the prawns off the barbeque just at the right time. You want them cooked but not over-cooked and this can be the difference of 15 seconds. So the minute you don't see any grey left, remove ASAP. They should take approximately 2 minutes.
16-20 large prawns
1/4 cup softened butter
1 lemon juiced
1 head of roasted garlic (1/2 hour in oven at 400 degrees, or until soft)
Mix the butter, lemon juice and garlic in a bowl until you have a soft paste. Rinse prawns, peel and massage butter mixture in so each prawn has generous coating.
Turn on barbeque and bring to 400-450 degrees.
Place on hot barbeque and grill 2 minutes or until they are no longer grey.
