Grandpa's Sweet Fried Prawns
by Del White
When I first came up with this recipe, we were camping and I used fresh caught crawfish, but it is just as good with prawns.
1 lb Peeled and deveined prawns
1 cup of white wine like a dry Reisling
1/4 cup of fresh chopped basil
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/4 cup of Kahlua
2-3 cups cooked Jasmin rice
Sea salt and pepper to taste
Marinate the prawns with the wine, basil, and garlic for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Using a cast iron skillet on med high heat, add approx 1 table spoon of olive oil, remove prawns from marinade and toss into skillet. Cook for about 15 seconds and then add the kahula.
Continue to cook the prawns until their built in thermometer register's done.
Remove from heat and pour over Jasmin rice and enjoy.
