Tiger prawns are butterflied, brushed with butter and Parmesan cheese, then broiled. This is a family favorite for home movie night; it's quick and easy and kids like the 'finger food' style.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 1/2 pounds tiger prawns, peeled and deveined
- 1 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven on broiler setting. With a sharp knife, remove tails from prawns, and butterfly them from the underside. Arrange prawns on broiler pan.
In a small saucepan, melt butter with garlic and lemon juice. Pour 1/4 cup butter mixture in a small bowl, and brush onto prawns. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over shrimp.
Place broiler pan on top rack, and broil prawns for 4 to 5 minutes, or until done. Serve with remaining butter mixture for dipping.
