• 680g raw prawns, peeled and de-veined
• 7 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
• 4 tbsp white wine

• 5 tbsp melted butter
• 65g breadcrumbs
• 3 tbsp lemon juice
• 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped

In a bowl, add the prawns, garlic, and white wine and toss to combine.  Transfer the mixture to a 9 x 13-inch baking dish, and spread the prawns out in an even layer.  Season with with salt and pepper.

Rinse out the mixing bowl, then add the melted butter and breadcrumbs, stir everything together until it’s evenly combined. With your fingers, sprinkle the mixture evenly in the baking dish over the shrimp.

Transfer dish to oven and bake for about 7 minutes, or until the prawns are just turning pink.  Switch the oven over to the grill setting.  Then grill the prawns for 2-3 more minutes, until they are totally pink and cooked through, and the breadcrumbs start to toast and look slightly golden.
