Emperor Prawn

Emperor prawn

Recently, I've bought a few emperor prawns from the market to celebrate the New Year. While doing this, I did not actually have an idea how to cook one of these. Opps! Smiley So this is very much another of my cooking experiments. Happy Smiley

I started of marinading one of the prawns with Olive oil, a pinch of salt, squeezed a bit of lemon, grinded black peppercorn, and set it aside for 30 minutes. Then, I shallow fry it in Olive oil with chopped garlic, and just before it was cooked, I added a small portion of mixed herbs. It turned out very delicious. So I thought I better document this. Winking Smiley

Looks delicious to me!

It seems to me that you knew very well what to do with it. I like prawns and who wouldn´t?

After reading you I have serious doubts you aren't a "chef" ... 'cause that the right way to make them tasty as that!
By the way, thanks for linking me.
Wish you all the best for 2010.

haha... Thanks for all the nice and encouraging comments. Very Happy Smiley

I have to add to it that the Prawn is about 10-12 inches long.

I wouldn't dare to buy something like that and don't have a recipe. I'm happy that you managed to cook a great meal though! Very Happy Smiley
