These salty prawns snacks are more of a starter than an appetizer but still.
This is one of my favourites and I do bake a fear amount of this dish in any given month.
My family really enjoys this no matter how often I make them.
But cool weather and wet nights do tend to draw more shrimp bites from the kitchen than the not-so-cold evenings.
We’re a family that likes to get together and socialise until late into the next morning – especially over long week-ends and public holidays.
We share our dreams, experiences and funny happenings of the week gone by.
We encourage and comfort each other in our daily doings and dares and if we feel we really excelled and have something big to celebrate we do it with complete submission.
I think that this dish is something you will enjoy and allow it to start new trends and happy moments in your life like it did in our own lives.
To start – we begin with the;
1 pound uncooked large prawns, peeled and deveined
8 ounces carefully dried artichoke.
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon full of chopped fresh parsley
The juice of two lemons
1/2 cup butter
1 ½ tablespoons of minced garlic and ginger
Some finely shredded cheese.
Preheat the oven to 375° F (190°C)
Arrange the fish in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
Break the artichoke into quarters, and arrange it into the spaces between the shrimp.
Sprinkle the bread crumbs and parsley over the fish and artichoke.
Sprinkle some lemon juice over the crumbs and the pink ones.
Melt the butter with the garlic and ginger in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
You can paint the butter mixture over the bread crumbs with a food brush and sprinkle the top after that with finely shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake it in the preheated oven until the crumbs and cheese brown lightly and the Prawns start to turn pink.
When it is done, you can cut it into pieces like into an ordinary salt tart or just into square-cuts for easier dishing up.
You can serve it hot or let it cool off to room temperature and serve it with a dip of your own taste…
…or rather a sauce of your choice!
…wine with this dish – I don’t think so…
