Lemon Drop Prawns

Posted by Kira DeRito on

~serves 6 for appetizers

  • 1 pound prawns, peeled and deveined, about 20 count
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½  cup sugar
  • Juice from 3 lemons (about ½ cup)
  • Lemon zest from half of a lemon
  • 3 T butter
  • ½ cup mayonnaise

In a large fry pan, drizzle in the olive oil and turn your burner on medium high. Add the prawns to the pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss a bit to make sure you've got just a single layer.  Cook for about 2 minutes on each side and remove from heat.

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the sugar, zest and lemon juice.   Slowly stir until the sugar is dissolved, then pour into a medium bowl.  Let it cool for a few minutes, then whisk in your mayo.   Add the shrimp and serve with a tiny sprinkle of chopped parsley for color.  Enjoy!
