tiger prawns.

usually we have our dinners planned out for the week. we go to the grocery store about every sunday, pick out our meals for the week, and call it a day.

the few times we don't have a meal planned out we find ourselves at a restaurant or scrounging in our fridge to make up a smorgishboard type-of-plate. last week we had one of those days where we had to find something for dinner. rather than spend $40 at a restaurant for probably what would have been a mediocre meal,  we ran to the grocery store, and stumbled upon these amazing looking tiger prawns.

we kept the flavor very simple, only adding a little butter and lemon juice to the mix. the prawns were juicy, flavorful, and very filling. 'twas a successful dinner!

recipe below. try it out!

lemon butter shrimp

1. heat 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil in cast iron skillet
2. add 2 cloves of garlic (chopped)
3. add a splash of lemon juice
4. add the prawns and cook 2-3 minutes a side
(don't move the prawns at they are laid on the skillet, otherwise the crust will not develop)

we paired our prawns with a fresh balsamic tomato and cucumber salad.

such a great summer dish!

are you a fan of prawns?
