How To Make butter prawns

  • 1
    You don't have to cook the shrimp in the shell with heads on but it gives the sauce a better flavor. To clean the shrimp, squeeze the heads while running cold water over them. Cut a slit on the outside of the prawns and pull out the poop vein. Rinse well in cold water and set aside. In a dry skillet place the coconut over medium high heat and cook until browned. Immediately remove from heat and set aside.
  • 2
    Place the oil in a large skillet and fry the prawns 2 minutes each side. Remove from the skillet and set aside. Wipe out the pan.
  • 3

  • 4
    Add the prawns back to the pan and add the coconut. Stir well and cook 2 minutes.
