Touch of Luxury: Grilled Jumbo Prawns

We knew we had to buy them when we saw these stunningly fresh and glistening jumbo tiger prawns at the supermarket on Saturday morning. Each one weighed in at an astonishing 100g and at a price of SGD39 per kilo (more expensive than Sri Lankan crabs!), four of these babies cost us SGD16.

But seared over a hot grill, sprinkled with some fleur de sel, freshly ground black pepper and accompanied with a caramelised lemon, these were so so awesomely finger-licking good. Such a rich and robust flavour more than mere prawns, similar to crayfish or lobsters, with the taste of the ocean marvellously brought out by our precious stash of fleur de sel from the Camargue marshes in Provence. A wonderfully indulgennt and luxurious lunch indeed!
