Real Food for Real people. This is a wonderful starter dish for contemporary eating. It is perfect for birthdays, new years, house-warming parties, and the many special occasions. It is great to impress your guests with your own innovation (wait, it’s mine haha but you have my permission of course;) You have to love a recipe where you get your vegetables and your extraordinary seafood all in one fabulous, delicious, and color-vibrant package.

4. 10/15 Fresh King Prawns

5. Red pepper (Cayenne)

6: Half of a Meyer Lemon (Just the juice)

7. Sea Salt

8. Black Pepper

9. 3 Chopped Garlic cloves

10. half an hour before serving, barbeque the pepper bells until they become soft and just cooked with little dark burns on the skin.

Make sure the sweetness is still there

11. Arrange the pepper bell around the border of the serving plate, leaving the center open.

12. Delicately Teppanyaki the King Prawns. Once one side of the prawn is cooked, turn it over so that the uncooked side is being cooked on the iron plate.

At the end, it’s not too difficult, but the results are absolutely marvelous!
