Lemon, Lime, And Garlic Shrimps


I think shrimps and garlic is a perfect match together with lemon or lime zest. One of my favorite method of preparing shrimps is to pair it with a mixture of breadcrumbs mixed with citrus zest, garlic, chili flakes, parsley, sea salt, and pepper. This Lemon, Lime, And Garlic Shrimps appetizer has a great combination of flavors, just make sure it’s served with lots of crusty bread.


Lemon, Lime, And Garlic Shrimps

Ingredients


4 Tbsp Olive Oil
150 g Peeled Large Prawns, thawed if frozen, pat dry
3 Cloves Garlic, peeled and chopped
Zest of 1 Big Lime
Zest of 1 Lemon
½ tsp Chili Flakes
3 Heaped Tbsp Chopped Flat-Leaf Parsley
1 Tbsp Breadcrumbs
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
1 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

Crusty Bread
Lemon and Lime Wedges

Method

Preheat an oven to 425˚F.

Place the olive oil in a baking dish large enough to fit the prawns in a single layer. Warm the oil in the oven for about 5 to 6 minutes or until the oil are hot.

Meanwhile, toss the prawns with all the ingredients except the butter.

Remove the baking dish from the oven and add the prawns in the hot oil and scatter the butter on top. Return to the oven and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the prawns are just cook. Season the prawns lightly with sea salt if necessary and serve immediately with lemon wedges, and some crusty bread.

Serves 4

  13. This was delicious, I took it as an appetizer for a new years eve party. It was the talk of the whole party! I didn't have limes so I added some lemon juice. Decided I wanted it again so I'm making it tonight and serving it over pasta!

  14. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe. My family enjoyed it so much, especially my parents in law.
    I translated your recipe, make a few minors changes to adapt it to my taste, and I put it on my blog, hope it is ok.
    My husband is working with wine, he suggested Riesling d’Alsace ou Viognier to go with this delicious recipe. Thanks again!
