Spot Prawns Roasted in Garlic Butter with Sambuca & Herbs

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu

Ingredients:

  • 1lb live spot prawns, head on
  • 3 cloves of garlic, puréed
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 15mL of chopped parsley
  • 50mL sambuca, or any other anise liquor
  • 150mL butter
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • Bread to serve with

Instructions:

  • Heat up a large pan until almost smoking. Drop in 75mL of the butter and let it foam. Add garlic and thyme, and cook for 15 seconds or until fragrant. Add the spot prawns and a pinch of salt. Cook for 1 minute, add the sambuca. Be careful of the flame. As soon as the flame disappears, transfer the prawns to a plate, add the rest of the butter and parsley, and cook until glossy and reduced. Add lemon juice, check for seasoning, and pour over prawns. Serve with warm bread.
