And we are already into 2019! I really wish time would slow down, there are just too many recipes to try, but too little time! This dish today is prepared for Cook Like a Star, hosted by Zoe from Bake for Happy Kids, Baby Sumo from Eat your heart out and Mich from Piece of Cake. The theme this month is Delia Smith, and as I don’t have a single collection of her recipe, I decided to head to her webpage to search for some recipes to try.
The first recipe that caught my eye was this really easy-looking roasted prawns. The prawns are butterflied, flavoured with a delicious mix of garlic, parsley, butter and lemon, and then roasted for just only 5 minutes (well, mine took 1 minute more, but hey, that’s still a really quick dish to get on the dining table!).
Well, of course, a little preparation is needed as the prawns need to be butterflied and all, but it really isn’t very difficult and to make things even easier, I’ve included step-by-step photos on how to butterfly prawns! And here they are!
You would have probably realised that the butterflied prawns below have heads intact but the prawns in my finished dish doesn’t. I actually remove all the prawn heads after this as I realized we won’t be eating them at all, and peeling the heads off really make the prawns much easier to eat. (Yes, I am that lazy sometimes…)
The steps to butterfly the prawns without heads are essentially the same, just twist off the head first, then follow from Step 4 onwards.
Now, if you think butterfly-ing prawns is easy, wait till you see below how the delicious garlic-parsley butter is made – it’s insane easy!
And there you have it! A very simple and straight-forward dish with uncomplicated flavours – I can foresee myself making this for parties, they would definitely serve as an irresistible appetisers
