A delicious midweek meal, all the family will love
1kg green prawns, weighed whole
2 tbsp Comvita UMF 5+Mānuka Honey
4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red chilli
1/4 cup finely chopped chives
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice plus extra lemon for serving
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil plus extra for cooking
Extra lemon zest and salt flakes
Shell and devein prawns. Slicing them down the back so they curl up as they cook. Place butter in a small saucepan, melt and continue cooking until it smells nutty and the milk solids have turned brown. Remove from heat and allow to cool for five minutes.
Cut the chilli in half. Finely chop one half and finely sliced the other.
Mix together the garlic, finely chopped chilli, all but one tablespoon of chives, Mānuka honey, lemon zest, salt and oil. Then slowly stir in the brown butter.
Pour half this mix over the prawns and toss to coat. Set aside to marinade for at least ten minutes. Add the lemon juice to remaining marinade.
Mix together one teaspoon each of lemon zest and salt flakes and set aside with the sliced chilli and remaining chopped
chives. This will be used to garnish.
Heat a large pan on medium heat add a drizzle of oil. Once hot add the prawns in batches. Cooking for one minute
each side, they should be golden brown. Once cooked add all the prawns back to the pan and pour over remaining
sauce. Toss to coat, the sauce should quickly caramelise.
Remove from the heat and serve scattered in your prepared garnish. Drizzle with extra Mānuka honey and serve.
