Not bad, but not great. I think I would have liked it more if I had used fresh prawns instead of frozen.

These prawns were amazing! The roasting process gave them a nice smoky flavor and the garlic and lemon butter sauce was to die for. I served them over rice and it was the perfect meal.

I made this dish for a dinner party last night and it was a huge hit! Everyone raved about the prawns, saying they were the best they'd ever had. I will definitely be making this recipe again.
