Prawns- Ballycotton Style


  • Boil a large saucepan of water (the biggest you've got) and add a mountain of salt (you've gotta trust us- the saltier the better- make those dudes feel really at home!)
  • When the water starts to boil throw them in for a swim and give them a minute or two.
  • They'll let you know when they've had enough as they'll start to float.
  • Best to do them in batches of about 10 if you've a large amount.
  • Let them dry out on a warmed tray while their other buddies are cooking.
  • Meanwhile, melt some butter in a saucepan with some crushed garlic and lemon juice.
  • A perfect dipping sauce for your prawns at the table.
  • Serve with a tasty green salad and either some crusty bread or steamed spuds for a real feast.
  • Prepare to drip and slurp your way to prong-ey heaven!
