So simple but so great prawns are cooked in butter, garlic, lemon juice and a touch of Dijon mustard to create this tastebud pleaser.
Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe couldn't be any easier to fix..a wonderful meal to prepare in a hurry but tasting like you worked long and hard! I didn't have fresh prawn..had two 375g bags of frozen so thawed them first and drained off all the water; proceeded with the recipe as stated. I used just a shy tbsp. of the dijon and on the advice of others, only used 1/2 cup butter. When I got the mixture together, I didn't think there would be enough but continued to heed the repetative advice of other reviewers and stuck with half cup...am glad I did...it was plenty enough and hubby dipped his french bread in the garlic butter! I used 2 cloves of garlic and rough chopped a handful of parsley. I also added a splash of dry white wine...this was fabulous and will definitely make again..don't be shy to try it with the frozen prawn...just dethaw first and drain off all the water. I served this over linguine. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. This is very easy and tasty. I used the full amount of butter and thought it was fine because I served it over penne. However, if you don’t want extra sauce, I’d reduce the butter by half. I used extra garlic, dried parsley and frozen prawn, thawed, shelled, and drained. I don’t really care for mustard, but used the required amount anyway. It added a little something. Had I not known that there was mustard in this dish, I wouldn’t have recognized the flavour; it was that subtle. I don’t understand how people could find it overpowering unless they used yellow mustard. I took one star off because the cook time for the prawn is way off. I used large prawn and they were a tad overdone at 10 minutes. ( I think they should have come out of the oven at 7-8 minutes) I can’t imagine how rubbery medium sized prawn at 15 minutes would be. - 29 Sep 2008
I made this for Mother's Day dinner and my mum was so impressed. I found the recipe easy and the taste was delicious! I used about 250gm of butter and that was plenty. I served it on a bed of jasmine rice with crusty bread. The garlic butter was beautiful with the rice and bread. - 09 May 2010
