Lizzie’s Garlic Prawns

So much garlic – so little time.  Just saying the words – Garlic Prawns – conjures up the taste and smell of delicious, garlicky, buttery sauce mopped up with fresh sourdough bread…  We find that six are enough for a meal as they are quite rich so this recipe is for two…

Tip 1:  You can use frozen prawns very successfully instead of fresh, just defrost by rinsing under cold water for about 5-10 minutes

Tip 2:  I freeze my chilli’s and find it easier to just grate them instead of chopping them.

Garlic prawns

Ingredients:

12 large prawn cutlets, tails intact

1 tablespoon of Olive Oil

4 tablespoons salted butter

1 long red chilli finely chopped (optional)

½ cup parsley finely chopped

Salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200c fan forced and place two cast iron ramekins in to heat up

In the meantime rinse the prawns and pat dry with paper towel

In a large frying pan heat the oil and melt the butter until sizzling

Add the grated garlic and finely chopped chilli

Stir for a few minutes taking care not to brown the garlic

Throw in the prawns and cook for a few minutes until opaque and almost cooked –  they will continue to cook in the hot ramekins from bench-top to table…

Add salt and pepper to taste if desired

Tip the prawns into the hot ramekins and pour in the butter sauce as well.  Take care as it may spatter.

Garnish with finely chopped parsley

Serve with fresh sourdough bread to mop up the delicious sauce

 

Bon Appetit!  🙂
