Piece of P*ss Prawns


ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #44 – Piece of Piss Prawns

Some things have to. come fresh right, or are better fresh. So, Wifey and I took a much needed “leave the condo” break all the way to Cold Storage. Whilst there she spotted some rather splendid prawns and asked could I & would I? Of course, I would, especially as it was Friday and work calls finished this week at 1800 and I was doing NOTHING more due to another shitty week. So the timing was with us too. I had bought some chicken concentrate recently too and the idea popped in my head for this recipe. It was so bloody easy to prep and cook these that they became ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #44 – Piece of Piss Prawns.

ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #44 - Piece of Piss Prawns
Beautifully pink and plump prawns, cooked with a little veggie for colour & flavour too. Not bad at all right? Yummo!!!

Now for once, I dragged out my monster skillet pan as it is deep deep deep and my plan for this recipe is to broil not fry today. So I needed the depth. This pan is colossal. I got it from the good old US of A. I actually bought it too, no looting from this cook. You literally need two hands to pick it up, same as when I go for a pee haha!!! For sure this is the perfect tool for this recipe. Believe me this is just too easy.

For a side dish for three people you will need;

  • 12 monster prawns – heads and skins on to keep the head fat for flavour, just rinse them under a tap
  • 1/2 or so of a cup of chicken stock concentrate
  • 1 Tbsp of finely chopped garlic
  • 2″ knob of salted butter
  • 2-3 ‘bulbs’ of washed Bok Choy (or equivalent greens) – cut the bottom off so they become individual leaves
  • 1/2 cup cooking cream
  • Cracked black pepper

Follow the steps – like hopscotch, 1, 2, 3;

  1. Skillet pan on the heat and in with the chicken stock concentrate and about 1 Litre of water – bring to boil
  2. In with the;
    • Garlic
    • Bok Choy
    • A good pinch of cracked black pepper
    • Butter
  3. Keep that bubbling away and turn the prawns so they get a good hot bath all over
  4. When they puff up and go a lovely pink all over (10 minutes or so), turn the heat down and pour in your cream and simmer for 5 minutes
  5. Serve with plain steamed white rice

I told you this was easy. That really is it. So quick, so simple and yet so very tasty. My ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #44 – Piece of Piss Prawns are really easy and one to have a go at folks. Feedback was very good from wifey and Strawberry Blonde. Cooking them this way keeps them super moist, and that chicken concentrate flavour gets in there too to make it a rather tasty little finger food dish. I served this with some white steamed rice and a little 1/2 and 1/2 tomato sauce with salad cream and a Tsp of Balsamic as a posh Thousand Island Dressing. Bloody brilliant. Get on it if you like prawns and like easy cooking – ENJOY!!!
