How to Make Steamed Spot Prawns

these guys could've been steamed 30 seconds less

Here's another easy one.

What you need:
  • 1 lb fresh spot prawns - they really should remain in the shell (deveined) The legs and head creep me out though so we cleaned them.
  • a bunch of fresh tarragon
  • lime (optional)
  • a bamboo steamer
What you do:
  • lay tarragon in the steamer
  • lay spot prawns on tarragon
  • steam no longer than two minutes - not even two minutes for the guys without their shell
Serve with poached halibut topped with ginger, lime, and avocado.
