These came just in time for Valentine’s Day, which I’d prepared these succulent & delish Baked Cheesy Jumbo River Prawns to #cookforfamily, simply pairing them with some gourmet Walnut Cheese & Mango! I’d wanted to bake 3 of these giants for each of my guests initially but due to their monstrous sizes, I decided to cut down to 2 each; keeping the rest for perhaps a steamboat session sometime soon.

Oh, and do not dispose their “claws”! All you need to do is smash them up to expose their delicious meat & dump them into a fondue like what I did. They’re deliciously tasty when dipped into an Anchovy Garlic Fondue! Bon Appetit!

  3. Wow! Yum Yum! My daughter once went prawning and brought back some of this huge prawns too although not as huge as yours but rather big too. I wanted to do something like what you did too but have difficulty keeping the prawns opened, so i ended up cooking it the chilli crab style. Lol! Mmm... now i know how to keep it opened......

    1. DS, awesome! I've always wanted to try prawning with my son. Chilli crab style sounds good too!

  4. Anchovy garlic fondue? You will catch me in a trap with that!

    1. John, hahaha! Will be posting it very soon...... Got the idea from a recent trip to Japan :)

  5. Wow, this looks so delicious, I love shrimp! Hope you had a good valentines day!

  6. Hi Shirley, Wow! I sure love this big prawns....and your this dish looks sinfully delicious!
    Looks so succulent.....I can just imagine the lovely scent. I guess I will want a second helping, ha ha.
    Shirley, under different circumstances, ladies like you are dangerous to these and they'll marry the cook, ha ha.
    And if not for a woman's cooking I would not have lost my bachelor's degree.
    Have a great week, keep a song in your heart, and stay beautiful.

    1. Tina, it's great having another prawn lover here! Wonder what's cooking up in Texas?

  9. Shirley, some of the reasons I love reading your blog are: 1) You teach how to make something completely unfamiliar (to me) and make it look easy; 2) Your attention to garnishes is amazing (loved the veggie plate and also the little hearts you served with the main course); and 3) Your photos make me want to eat this for breakfast! The close-up of the fondue (below step #8) really ought to be submitted to Taste Spotting or Food Gawker. Beautiful!
