All it takes sometimes are 3 or 4 ingredients to make something outstanding. Australia is blessed with arguably some of the best seafood in the world and the prawns are no exception. These tiger prawns are simply pan fried (I used a cast iron skillet) in a little olive oil and butter, seasoned with salt and lemon juice and garnished with some fresh parsley. Serve these as an entree, part of a picnic spread or just as a luxurious snack. The prawns are cooked quickly over a medium to high heat leaving them sweet and succulent. I am never disappointed by the colour transformation when they are turned over. Well tasty.
Enjoy with a crisp riesling or Pinot Grigio.
