I was in a store Friday and noticed these huge shrimp that were 7 shrimp per pound. Left the store but the image of these things on my plate made me go back and buy some. Anybody ever cook these before. I need some tips. I'm thinking steaming or sauteeing them with butter and lemon juice but am open to any suggestions. (once I locate my Bubba Gump Cookbook I'll be in bizness!)

These Tiger Prawns (shrimp) are great on the grill! After cutting the head off and removing the legs, place the shrimp on its back, slice it right down the center and lengthwise without cutting through the back shell. Lay it open and remove the vein.

Leaving that shell on the back, you can now baste this with your favorite sauce or just drawn butter with some light seasonings. Put on them on the grill and baste them as they cook. They don't take long (5 minutes or so). Leaving that shell on keeps them moist and keep your basteing sauce intact with the shrimp. Good eating!!!!

We had steak and prawns for supper last night and I just steamed them and we dipped them in butter. I needed an excuse to use the new butter warmers I bought.

The prawns were delicious and the steak was second to none.. :nod: We also had fresh green beans which was amazing, fresh beans in January, wow, what a treat that was.. :D

HD, I almost pulled out some ribeyes so we could have surf and turf. Like Lammie said, I love them shrimfs.

I think a heavenly meal would be these prawns, a basket of dungeoness crab, a ribeye, a twice baked potato, and some bread and a beverage or three to break it all down and help concrete down my nap. :nod:

Now I'm gonna have to go get some shrimps to go with the steak for supper. The shrimps will be frozen, like everything else in the country. :roll:

How about just boiled up and buttered or throw the shrimps in the skillet with the steak?

Don't put'em in with the steak you'll overcook'em....boil them just long enough to get them hot thru and thru (add a box of that cajun shrimp boil) and you'll have a fine meal.

Sounds like the makings of a low country boil. :banana:

Mnmt, I steamed mine then tossed them in a skillet that was filled with heavily spiced butter and shook them around a bit. Don't know why I did it this way but it just seemed the thing to do at the time. They were good.

Joe that's what I did, kinda :cowboy: Except I thawed the shrimps in the Microwave then threw them in with the steaks, dipped the shrimps in melted butter, not bad at all. Then I dove into the medium rare rib eye. :D We don't got things so bad upnort.
