Print Friendly, PDF & Email


  • 14 large prawn tail on, cleaned, deveined, rinsed (size 20-25 per pound)
  • 1/4 cup(s) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) rosemary, fresh, minced
  • 7 bacon slices
  • 2 ounce(s) Blue cheese crumbles, room temp (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Bake bacon on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 7 minutes (about 3/4 of the way done, so it stays soft and flexible, yet mostly cooked).

Clean prawns by removing the tail and vein. Rinse briefly under cool water and pat dry on paper towels.

Sprinkle prawns with salt, pepper, and fresh rosemary.

Splash with the balsamic vinegar.

Wrap each prawn in 1/2 slice bacon. Secure bacon with toothpick.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for 4 minutes. Turn prawns over and press blue cheese onto the top of each prawn. Return to oven for another minute or so, to melt the cheese.

Remove from oven. Transfer to a pretty platter and serve immediately.
