Poached prawns – the how to:
I start buy adding bay leaves, lemon slices, celery sticks, carrot chunks, butter & salt to a large pot of water.
Bring this to the boil, then turn down to a simmer and add the fresh prawns.
I devein and remove the head from the prawns – leaving tails attached.
The ‘poaching’ process will only take a few minutes.
As the prawns change colour pull them out – they will continue to cook even after being
removed from the liquid.
They should look like the below:
I like to add mine to a lettuce cup and drizzle cocktail sauce over the top – Great & easy to tray around at a party or served in the middle of the table easy to grab.
