After my Frugal week, it’s time to splurge, I still have a couple of bits left from my Christmas stash- one of these items, are some Aldi beautiful huge tiger prawns. I had taken them out of their box and put into a freezer bag to save space.
Now, I believe that good produce doesn’t need too much doing to it, so fried in a simple garlic butter and lots of it 🤗
I make garlic butter and freeze it ready to use – I make it in the Thermomix 4 fat cloves of garlic peeled and whizzed at speed 4 for 30 seconds, add a whole pack of salted butter, roughly chopped and a pack of parsley and mix on speed 4 till blended, turn out and roll into a sausage in cling film, ready to slice and use.
Melt some butter in a shallow pan, heat till gently bubbling, add the huge prawns and cook through on both sides till pink and succulent- I have added a pinch of black pepper, the juice of half a lemon and a sprinkle of chopped Corriander, into a serving dish and eat as soon as they are cool enough to be picked up 😍
With some homemade bread to soak the juices I have made some Bagguettes 300ml warm water, a pack of yeast, 500g bread flour, a good kneed, leave for an hour to rise, then split the dough in half.
Each half flatten into a rectangle and roll into a baguette shape, Leave to rise again for half an hour then into a preheated oven for 40 mins with a splash of water in a traybat the bottom of the oven, till golden brown
A simple supper but gorgeous
add a chilled glass of dry white wine – perfect….
I have made dark chocolate Icecream for pud 😉
