  • Luddite Jeff's Pide'n Prawns

    G'day Folks.
    I hope you lot are more tolerant than those Philistines from the TOOLS and TIPS section. Disgraceful lot, I tell you.
    Tonight's meal was dead basic, and has huge potential: pide, boiled prawns from down the creek, black olives, fresh tomato and basil. I'm almost pleased that the constant ringing of the phone foreshortened the planned menu: less can indeed be more.
    Negatives: oven floor was fine, but ceiling had cooled too much = rare pide.
    Positives:fresh bread plus sublime prawns is second only to fresh bread and sublime mudcrab. So I suffer quietly...long sigh..haha - aaahh. Yes!

    Tip. We caught a truckload of prawns last December. To defrost, cover with sea water [roughly 30g salt /litre rain(drinkable) water], and leave 'em there for an hour or two. If boiling, 2 minutes is about right. As soon as they float, scoop 'em out. Overcooked = Blaarth, eh.

    And I would welcome other techniques.

    OK, seems to have worked. Bed time for this little black duck.

        Great looking prawns, Jeff. The basil is a great garnish too, huh?
        Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

          Fresh basil. Now that's a reminder of summer. :-) Here in rain drenched CA, our lawn is mud and a second storm knocked the fence over again.

          On the upside, I hosed off the side patio, and we are starting to lay out the kitchen counters, grill and outdoor fireplace. Spring is coming.

          Sorry to hijack the thread...

            I'd love to try this, but unfortunately we have no creek, let alone one with prawns in...

            That is so cool!

              Sure Frances, I feel your pain. You probably don't get eaten to death by midges and sandflies when the wind blows from the wrong quarter either.
              No such thing as a free lunch eh.
              Love you mob.

              ps. burn that bloody fence, James. It's obviously a pita. j.
