Oven Baked Prawns

butterprawnsI saw this recipe for Oven Baked Prawns on a Facebook post that went viral and HAD. TO. TRY. IT! Looked so simple to make and, of course, I had to add my own spin on it. This dish is great as an appetizer at parties when your guests don’t mind getting their hands dirty or as a dinner entree.

RECIPE

  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 lemon sliced thinly
  • 1 lb. of prawns or shrimp (shelled or not shelled, whichever you prefer)
  • 1 tsp of dried Italian spices (basil, oregano, thyme, garlic, etc.)
  • salt & pepper
  • Optional: sliced zucchini or asparagus spears
  1. Preheat oven at 350˚F.
  2. Melt the butter in a microwave-safe glass pan (about 1-2 minutes in the microwave.)
  3. Layer the lemon slices over the butter.
  4. Place the prawns over the lemon slices.
  5. Sprinkle the Italian spices, salt & pepper over the prawns.
  6. Top with veggies.
  7. Cover with foil.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Remove foil and bake for another 5-10 minutes. (You may have to move the veggies around to make sure all the prawns are cooked.)
  10. Dig in!
