How to make – Ginger and Garlic Prawns

This is a very easy recipe that will get you salivating just looking at the end product.
First select your Prawn. I like either the medium to large King Prawn or the Banana Prawn. Make sure you do not select Prawns with black heads and legs as they most likely have been defrosted for a number of days. Also look at their eyes and make sure they are full and not sunken.

Pull its head off and throw away.
Image
Peel off outer shell and legs.
Image
At this stage you can either leave the tail on or pull it off. I like to take the tail off so you can eat the whole Prawn and not worry about eating the tail.
Image
Take a sharp knife and run it across the back.
Image
With your fingers, remove the black or green line and throw away.
Image
You are now left with a clean prawn ready to cook.
Image
Do this to as many Prawns as you like and put them into a clean bowl.
Image
Add a good 1/4 cup of Olive Oil.
Image
Add 3-4 Freshly crushed Garlic (Jar Garlic is fine) and freshly grated Ginger (Jar Ginger is also fine)
Image
Cook on a BBQ for approximately 3 mins
Image
Enjoy!
