How to cook
Prepare seaweed butter
  • Combine soy sauce & black sugar in a bowl and microwave on high for 15 secs. Meanwhile, roughly chop seaweed into small pieces of about 0.5cm or so.
  • Add chopped seaweed and salted butter into the bowl of soy sauce and sugar.
  • Mix until there are no streaks of butter left in the mixture, then set aside.
Prepare prawns
  • Butterfly cut the topside of the prawn body just after the head all the way to the tail without cutting through the other side, as you would do to a hot dog bun.
  • Toss to coat in seaweed butter mixture and season with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
Start cooking
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Spread the prawns open & place the prawn shell side down onto a tray.
  • Place tray on top oven rack and roast the prawns until pink and opaque.
  • Alternatively, you can use a pan over medium-high heat, place the prawn shell side down, and cook for about 2-3 mins covered and 1 min uncovered until cooked.
  • Remove prawns from the oven and put some butter over them, letting the heat melt them.
  • Garnish with spring onions and serve immediately.
