I first encountered this tasty dish when I was traveling in Spain, where it was called the" Ironed Shrimps" on a not-so-well translated menu. I was curious so I ordered some. I am glad I did, it turned out to be so delicious, the prawns were juicy and fresh, and were grilled to perfection with olive oil, salt and some lemon juice.
My aunty got me a big bag of frozen King Prawns from Costco last week. (Thanks Aunty Rebecca) so I whipped up this dish in no time!
Cook time : 5 minutes
Cost: $10 per pound
- 8 King Prawns
- 1 large lemon
- Wash prawns and drain. Cut lemon in half.
- Heat grill or frying pan to high heat. Pour in 2 tablespoon of olive oil. Place prawns on pan, sprinkle salt. Squeeze lemon juice directly over prawns. Cook for 2 minutes, turn them over and sprinkle more salt and lemon juice.
- Prawns should turn pink and shells should turn golden when cooked. It should take no more than 4 minutes.
- Serve with melted garlic butter.
