Pan Seared Prawns

This recipes works well in a hot oven (700ºF) using a live fire and a hot, preheated steel pan.


  • 1 lb of uncooked shrimp (peeled or unpeeled)


  • 1-2 gloves of garlic, minced
  • 2-3 Tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • 4 Tbs best olive oil
  • 1 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and Pepper


Fire your oven, and keep the fire going. This dish cooks at high heat with a live flame.

Clean and butterfly the shrimp, then marinate for an hour in the garlic, parsley, oil and vinegar.

A few minutes before you are ready to eat, pre-heat a cast iron grill pan or steel pan in a pizza-hot oven. Get it hot.

Pull the pan out of the oven, and pour in everything. Grill for 1-3 minutes, until the tops are brown and bubbling.

    1. Thanks so much for including the cooking temperature and actual process of cooking. So many of the posts omit this and leave too much to guessing. We love cooking in our oven and love this quick wonderful appetizer!
