Malaysian Prawns and Shrimp

From Florida Sport Fishing

* Prep: 25 minutes

* Marinate: 30 minutes

* Broil: 3 minutes

Half of this rich and zesty sauce serves as a dip alongside the seafood; the other half, laced with a splash of soy sauce, is basted on when broiling.

Ingredients

24 fresh or frozen prawns and/or 3 pounds large shrimp in shells

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1/4 cup margarine or butter

2 tablespoons lemon juice or rice vinegar

1/2 cup purchased coconut milk

Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce

1 tablespoon soy sauce

Ti leaves (optional)

Lemon and lime wedges (optional)

Cooking Instructions

    1. Thaw prawns and/or shrimp, if frozen. Remove and discard the heads, if desired; set aside the prawns and shrimp.

    2. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine peanut butter, margarine or butter, and lemon juice or vinegar. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat. Cook and stir over low heat for 2 minutes. (The mixture should be thick.) Remove from heat.

    3. Gradually stir in coconut milk and bottled hot pepper sauce. Remove half of the sauce to use as a dipping sauce; set aside. Stir soy sauce into mixture in saucepan.

    4. On short skewers*, loosely thread prawns or shrimp; arrange in a single layer on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Brush soy sauce mixture onto prawns or shrimp. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes. Broil skewered prawns 3 inches from the heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until flesh turns pink, turning once.

    5. Arrange skewered prawns or shrimp in a serving bowl lined with Ti leaves, if desired. Garnish with lemon and lime wedges, if desired. Stir reserved sauce; pass with seafood. Makes 24 servings.

    *Note: If using wood skewers, first soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning while broiling.
