3/18/18 O&A NYC FOOD/SUNDAY BRUNCH: Grilled Thai Red Curry Prawns

Grilled Thai Red Curry Prawns are a flavorful and easy Sunday brunch. The giant shrimp are impressive and remain succulent in a simple sauce.  Whisk together a quick marinade using red curry paste, fish sauce, and lime juice. Just three simple ingredients that pack a ton of flavor.

After 30 minutes of marinating, I grilled the prawns on a stove-top grill pan ( but an outdoor grill would be even better!), and then tossed them in a sauce made from melted butter and a bit more curry paste. This created a luscious sauce that coated the shrimp thoroughly (all the better for licking off your fingers later on!).

To eat, I like to serve these in a big bowl, with a separate bowl for shells and a big pile of napkins on the side. It’s a fun, messy dish that’s perfect for sharing with friends. Try it with cold beers or a fizzy sparkling wine to cut through the heat.

This recipe will also work with peeled shrimp, though in that case you really only need to marinate for about 10 minutes, and the cook time will also be shorter.

Grilled Thai Red Curry Shrimp

10 giant whole Prawns (with heads on)
4 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
1/4 cup fish sauce
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
Dried Thai basil, red chile flakes for garnish

Use a pair of kitchen shears to snip along the back of the prawns, pulling out the vein. Place prawns in a large bowl. Add half the curry paste, the fish sauce, lime juice, and salt, and toss until evenly combined and coated. Place in fridge and let marinate 30 minutes.

Combine melted butter and remaining curry paste in a clean large bowl.

Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill, and cook the prawns 2-3 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked and slightly charred. Add the cooked prawns to the bowl with the butter and curry paste, then toss to coat evenly.

Place in a serving bowl and season with kosher salt. Garnish with a sprinkle of dried basil and chile flakes.

Serve hot.

Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as an entree
