Garlic Parsley Butter Prawns

The other day while I was updating my recipe index, I, for the nth time, told myself that I should really start making anything but desserts!!! Let's agree that we all indulge in sweets and desserts more often than we should! Atleast that's my case! I'm having to many candy crushes on desserts!! That is why, somebody inspired me to have a go at desserts only after making 3 dishes that have nothing to do with sugar!!! And as I was craving for some 'Beurre d'Ail' - (aka Garlic Butter) for a long long time, it was the perfect dish to start my sugar-free-course with! Leaving my modesty aside and being totally aware that Garlic Butter needs no introduction, this dish was excruciatingly delicious, honestly, the tangy bitter taste of lemon and garlic makes this a wow dish! For the extra factor, I served it on a bed of Lemon Parsley Rice!
