Barbecued Prawns

It's the sauce rather than the cooking method that gives the dish its name. It's spicy, zippy and hot.

ingredients

serves: 2
450 g (1 lb) large prawns, cooked and unpeeled
100 g (4 oz) unsalted butter
1 tsp each white, black and cayenne pepper
Pinch salt
1 tsp each chopped fresh thyme, rosemary and marjoram
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp Worcester sauce
125 ml (5 fl oz) fish stock
60 ml (4 tbsps) dry white wine
Cooked rice

method

1. Remove the eyes and the legs from the prawns.

2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and add the white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, herbs and garlic. Add the prawns and toss over heat for a few minutes. Remove the prawns and set them aside.

3. Add the Worcester sauce, stock and wine to the ingredients in the pan. Bring to the boil and cook for about 3 minutes to reduce. Add salt to taste.

4. Arrange the prawns on a bed of rice and pour over the sauce to serve.

Because the prawns are precooked, cook them very briefly again, just to heat through. Use uncooked, unpeeled prawns if possible. Cook these until they curl and turn pink.

You should be using uncooked prawns, as if u use cooked prawns them they will over cook and not taste nice at the end of the dish. so hterfore use ONLY UNCOOKED PRAWNS AND NOT COOKED PRAWNS> peace.
