Oven Broiled Garlic Prawns

Oven Broiled Garlic Prawns


2 lbs Large Prawns cleaned & sliced in half vertically from head to tail (Can swap for Lobster)

2 Tablespoons EssieSpice Coco-For-Garlic Sauce

1 Tablespoon chopped chives ( Chinese Chives work here too or dried Chives)

3 Tablespoons thinly sliced Scallions (Spring Onions)

2 Tablespoons chopped Garlic

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Black Pepper

Pinch of Red Pepper Flakes

1/4 Cup Melted Butter



  1. Use a roasting pan or aluminum grilling pan. Grease it and get it ready for the prawns. Turn the oven on to 350F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, massage the EssieSpice Coco-For-Garlic Sauce all over the Prawns concentrating on the meaty side and making sure you get it into all the cracks.

  3. Drizzle half of the butter all over it and spread It evenly over all the prawns

  4. Lay them flesh side up in your roasting bowl/pan or grilling pan

  5. Add the salt, red pepper, black pepper, chives and scallions and garlic

  6. Place in oven and then turn the oven on broil for direct heat right on the tops of the Prawns

  7. Seafood doesn’t take long to cook so keep an eye on it. They only need about 2-3 minutes on High Broil to cook. Lobster tails will take a little longer since they have more meat; preferably a minute per each out of meat. Serve with rice, potatoes, vegetables or snack them just like that.
