Garlic Butter Prawns

This tasty and easy-to-prepare garlic butter prawns dish is great as an appetizer or served with bread. I remember eating this in Perth in one of the restaurants by the sea. They gave us a newspaper to place on the table so that we could help ourselves to a huge bowl of steaming hot garlic prawns and mess the table with the heads and shells of the prawns. Alternatively, you can also marinate the prawns with the pounded ingredients and salt. Then barbecue them and finish the dish off by brushing Q.B.B. Pure Ghee on it.
