Lemon Garlic Prawn - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Lemon butter garlic prawns are among the easiest and most flavorful prawn dishes you can make. Within just a few minutes, you can enjoy this luxurious-tasting dish.
These creamy lemon butter garlic prawns are so delicious that you’ll want to savor every last drop of juice from your plate.
The prawns will be grilled with the shells on, which helps to keep them moist and flavorful. While you can remove the heads if you prefer, I love chewing on grilled prawn heads, so I left them on.
