Buzz Button Salt Prawns
INGREDIENTS
  • 1lb Gulf Prawns, unpeeled
  • Melted Butter
  • Poaching Liquid:
  • 2 cups Dry White Wine
  • 1 Celery Stalk, sliced
  • 3 cups Water
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 1 Lemon
  • ½ Onion
  • 1 tsp Szechuan Peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Coriander Seed

DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the poaching liquid:
1a

Squeeze the juice from the lemon.  Combine both the lemon and the juice with all the other poaching liquid ingredients in a pot.
1b

Bring the liquid to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.  Simmer for 20 minutes.
2

Use kitchen shears to cut up the back of the prawns’ shells to expose the vein.  Remove it with the tip of the shears or a knife (video tutorial).
3

Bring the poaching liquid back to a boil.  Submerge the prawns in it, then remove the pot from the heat.
4

Let the prawns sit in the poaching liquid until their backs start to turn opaque (about 5 minutes).
5

Remove the prawns from the poaching liquid and put them in the fridge until they’re well chilled.
6

While the prawns are chilling, chop together the dipping salt ingredients.
7

Peel the prawns’ shells off.  Serve them with melted butter and the dipping salt.
