This one skillet dish is simple to make and can feed a crowd. Buttery Lemon Rye Prawns are sauteed for a few minutes in….you guessed it, butter and Derek Wolf Lemon Chili Rye blend, then removed and a few more ingredients are added to make the sauce silky and luscious. You only need some crusty bread to mop up the deliciousness, but if you’re wanting to Experiment in Flavor™ then take this recipe and toss it with some al dente bucatini pasta and top with some grated manchego cheese.
