NUTRITION INFORMATION:
Serving: 141gCalories: 262kcal (13%)Carbohydrates: 2.4g (1%)Protein: 28.7g (57%)Fat: 14.7g (23%)Saturated Fat: 5.6g (35%)Cholesterol: 279mg (93%)Sodium: 383mg (17%)Potassium: 221mg (6%)Vitamin A: 550IU (11%)Vitamin C: 0.8mg (1%)Calcium: 120mg (12%)Iron: 0.4mg (2%)

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Combine shrimp / prawns, garlic and oil in a small bowl, use your fingers to coat then set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. BROWNED BUTTER
  3. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small silver fry pan or saucepan over medium heat. (Note 3)
  4. Heat until it starts to foam, then swirl the pan occasionally to distribute heat evenly.
  5. Cook until the butter turns golden, smells nutty and there are brown specks at the bottom (you might need a teaspoon to push the foam aside).
  6. Remove from heat immediately. Pour into a jug, leaving behind most of the bitter brown specks (I strained it - because I was making an effort!).
  7. Set aside until required.
  8. PRAWNS / SHRIMP
  9. Heat the BBQ or fry pan over high heat (no oil).
  10. Add prawns / shrimp and cook until each side is lightly golden brown, but be sure not to overcook! (Note 4)
  11. SERVE
  12. Place prawns in a bowl. Grate over the zest of a lime, then cut the lime in half and squeeze over about 1 tbsp of lime juice. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of browned butter, toss gently.
  13. Transfer to a plate. Drizzle with 2 tbsp of browned butter then lastly, drizzle over kecap manis, using as thin a stream as you can.
  14. Serve immediately, garnished with chilli and cilantro/coriander, if using.
