  • 24 fresh or freshly thawed prawns or large shrimp
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 3 tbsp pickled ginger, chopped
  • 1/4 cup gin
  • 1 baguette


  • Remove the shells from the prawns and set aside. This task is much easier when the prawns are slightly frozen.
  • Melt butter in a skillet over low heat.
  • Add the chopped green onions and stir for a minute until slightly softened.
  • Add the prawns. Cook for 2 minutes or until just translucent.
  • Add the chopped pickled ginger, a little of the ginger juice from the jar, and the gin.
  • Cook for one more minute.
  • Serve immediately with a crusty baguette for dipping.
