"My gal loves prawns, so I looked at all the ways to prepare them with as little 'fridge-to-fork' time as possible. Makes for great 'Movie Night' finger food. There will be a bit of butter brew left, either in the bowl, or on the plate. Onion bread is a good way to clean that up. Serve with a side of vegetables to make a meal of it."

This is so delicious and totally simple!! Only one change...DON’T use as much salt as the recipe calls for – it’s way too much!!! Just use to taste. Also, it's excellent if you pour the oil a...

We really liked these. Really quick and easy to make. Great for an appetizer or a main course. The only reason these don't get 5 stars is the amount of butter. It can really be reduced by a ...
