    Made this (along with the spicy garlic prawns) and the wife just loved them. "Better than prawns from a restaurant", she said but maybe she is a bit biased. Nonetheless, some browny points for me  -  21 May 2016


    Excellent! Instead of putting it on a pan, try putting the shrimp in separate cups made of aluminum foil. Pour in the butter mixture and broil. The aluminum foil kept in all the sweet juices from the shrimp! Yummm!  -  04 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't get enough of these. They are far better than any prawns i've ever had at a restaurant. I make the sauce in the microwave, and don't usually need it to dip them in after. also, i find it a lot easier to make them assembly line style - dunk in the sauce, then flop each side on a plate of parmesan, then put them on a broiling rack. They come out perfect every time.  -  12 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
