ABOUT Tandoori Prawns RECIPE

When I found some really Jumbo Tiger Prawns during my weekend grocery shopping, I grabbed them immidiately because there were only 6 left in the counter. I got them cleaned up nicely and asked the fish monger to butterfly them for me while packed the heads for my cat who dotes on seafood as much as I do. She was one happy cat that day. Since, the prawns were special, I decided to barbecue them in tandoor instead of regular frying or putting them in curry. It was an extremely simple recipe which made for a perfect Sunday Starter during lunch.
