These shrimp are so big and sweet you¿d never know they weren¿t lobster. Hinged grill baskets make turning them super easy.


  • 16 prawns or jumbo shrimp (size U-15) in the shells, preferably with heads on
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons minced lemongrass (inner bulb only, from 2 stalks)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced Serrano chile
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice, plus wedges for garnish
  • Pinch of salt
  • Canola oil for brushing
  • Grilled naan, lime wedges and cilantro for serving


On a cutting board, using a pair of kitchen scissors, or sharp paring knife, cut the shrimp lengthwise through the shell, along the top side about 1 inch below the head and press to flatten. Pull out and discard the intestinal vein that runs lengthwise.

In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the softened butter with the sriracha, lemongrass, garlic, ginger, turmeric, fish sauce and lime juice and season with the salt. Microwave on high power just until soft enough to brush but not melted, about 5 seconds.

Light a grill and oil the grates. Arrange the butterflied shrimp in a hinged grill basket, shell-side down, brush with oil and season with salt. Brush very lightly with some of the butter. Grill the shrimp, shell side down until lightly charred, about 2 minutes. Brush the shrimp with more of the butter, turn and grill until lightly charred and cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer the shrimp to plates and serve with the remaining butter, naan, lime wedges and cilantro. Serve right away.

A valuable ally needs to feel more valuable. Try to throw some love or money this person’s way. You don’t want him flying the coop.


(April 19 – May 19):

Do you really believe that a customer is right? Or are you trying to avoid a confrontation? Ducking out will only come back to haunt you.


(May 20 – June 20):

This is the time to owe up to foibles. Not only will it encourage others to cop to theirs, but it also introduces some much-needed bonhomie.


(June 21 – July 21):

Check to see how your application or request is doing. What you assume is under consideration may be under a pile of papers collecting dust.


(July 22 – Aug. 21):

Diplomatic powers are put to the test today, but you’ll succeed admirably. Memorize how you handle this. This technique is worth perfecting.

You feel fulfilled working as part of a team. You don’t need to stand out to get recognition. What you do is outstanding enough.


(Sept. 22 – Oct. 22):

A friend or colleague asks for help again. It’s clear you’ve done everything you can. If this person keeps pushing, then maybe it’s time to be blunt.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s natural to reach for the first peace offer when emerging from a tough time, but hold off. You should get more for your aggravation.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

It’s OK to help out, but make sure to protect your own interests, too. You don’t want to be dragged into other people’s messes right when your star is on the rise.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 18):

Expect a flurry of correspondence. You’re the reason for most of it so scrutinize every text or email that flies across your screen.


(Jan. 19 – Feb. 17):

Never underestimate your love of play. A creative whim serves as a thumbnail sketch for a brilliant design.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to extend the benefit of the doubt, but it must be done. There are always two sides to a story.

LeBron Apologizes for Neighborhood Media Circus with Cupcakes

lebron james

LeBron James wants to make sure he’s in the good graces of his neighbors now that he’s back in Ohio.

So, on Tuesday night, James sent a team from a Fairlawn, Ohio, bakery around his immediate neighborhood in Bath Township to deliver cupcakes to apologize for the traffic jams caused by the interest in James’ return earlier this month.

LeBron James and his family sent cupcakes to neighbors as a goodwill gesture after fans swarmed the area when James said earlier this month that he would return to the Cavaliers.
Lakisha Williams, co-owner of Baker Blvd Decadent Desserts, said the James family placed an order for 70 dozen cupcakes — 65 to be delivered to his neighbors and five to be delivered to the Bath Township police department.

“Dear Friend,” read a card that came with the treats. “We know things have been hectic in our neighborhood these past few weeks and we are sorry for the chaos. We are so thankful to live in this wonderful community and we are so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you.”

The card noted that the two kinds of cupcakes in the box were originally devised for James’ foundation. Each box contained six “Just A Kid From Akron Cherry Cola” cupcakes and six “Homecourt Chocolate Chunk” cupcakes.

“It was really hectic around here,” said David Galehouse, a rising sophomore at Ohio State whose childhood home is a few blocks from James’ house. “But it’s really nice for LeBron to do something like this.”

James, who currently is in China, bought the property in 2003 and went on to build a 30,000-square-foot mansion on the land.

Galehouse said that despite his close proximity to the basketball star’s home, he has seen him only once.

Said Galehouse: “They were some of the best cupcakes I ever had.”
