So without further ado here goes....................

2 tbsp cajun spice powder
1 tbsp red chilli flakes
100 gms butter cold

Marinate the prawns with the cajun spice powder for a half hour
In a chopper , add the butter , garlic and parsley and grind it all up .
In a baking tin add the prawns in a single layer and add the chilli flakes
Now crumble the butter on top of the prawns .
Bake in a preheated  180 c oven for about 20 min or the prawns are done .
