Description Edit

This simplified Cajun prawn dish is made and packed with real fruit juice, herbs, and spices, and enriched with honey to help maintain its red-hot, cooking consistency. Barbecue sauce occasionally works for this, too.

Ingredients Edit

For the seafood base Edit

Seasoning mix Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Prepare and make all the seasoning-mix ingredients in a food processor and set aside. Stored in a sealed container, it will keep indefinitely for future use.
  2. Blend the garlic, olive oil, 2 tbsp. seasoning mix, lemon juice, honey, and soy sauce in a bowl.
  3. Add the prawns and the chopped parsley to the mixture and toss well to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. Preheat an oven to 500° F. Place the prawns with the marinade in a large, heavy skillet (large enough to fit prawns in a single layer or cook in batches) and place in an oven.
  5. In about 2 to 3 minutes, shake the pan to ensure even cooking and repeat in another 2 to 3 minutes. At this point, the mixture should be bubbling and the prawns will be turning opaque.
  6. Transfer the pan to a stove, over medium heat and begin adding the butter in 1 to 2 tbsp. increments, shaking the pan the entire time, allowing the butter to emulsify into the mixture before adding any more butter. This process should take about 4 to 5 minutes.
  7. When completed, then pour onto a platter and serve immediately with plenty of good, crispy bread, as well as with rice.
