Prawns is the term given to very large shrimp, big enough that you only need a few for a full serving. Oven-roasting is a surefire technique to turn out flavorful prawns in just a few minutes. Customize the dish to suit your mood and complement any side dishes you may be serving. You can cook the prawns either peeled and deveined or with the shell on, depending on your preference. Make sure the prawns are fully thawed before roasting.
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spread the prawns in a single layer in a rimmed baking sheet or baking dish.
Drizzle the prawns with melted butter or olive oil.
Sprinkle the prawns with salt and pepper. Season with flavorful aromatics, like minced garlic, ginger, shallots and chopped fresh herbs like parsley, dill or thyme. You can use any dried herbs you enjoy, as well, like cayenne pepper or onion powder. A few tablespoons of lemon or lime juice will give the prawns a bright, complex flavor.
Transfer the prawns to the oven and bake until the flesh is pink and opaque, about 7 minutes for large prawns and 10 minutes for giant prawns. Serve immediately.
