When I was at our vacation home recently, I had a hankering for some shellfish. Since there is a fantastic meat market close-by, I ventured out to buy some Tiger Prawns. These things were huge (think small lobsters)!
I decided to make Stuffed Prawns and they turned out really, really good!
Luckily these were pretty much deveined. I cleaned them up a little more (as I am kind of OCD about shrimp and prawns). I just made two, since I was the only one eating them, but you could double or triple the recipe as needed.
4 Tiger Prawns (2 for stuffing and two for filling)
1/2 cup French bread pieces, chopped into small cubes (I used Ciabatta rolls)
1/4 cup mayo
Land o’ Lakes Saute Express (I used the Garlic & Herb flavor)
2 Green Onions – chopped
1 Tablespoon breadcrumbs
3 Tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Lemon Juice
Clean the shrimp, and fan two of them out on a cookie sheet or baking pan. Chop the other two into small pieces.
In a medium bowl, melt the cube of Saute Express butter, then add the bread pieces to soak up the butter.
Add the chopped prawns, cut up bread pieces, mayo, chopped onions, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and two of the tablespoons of Parmesan Cheese.
Put a mound of filling on each open prawn, sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and remaining parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx 40 minutes. Service with lemon wedge and enjoy!
