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!  🙂

Garlic Prawn Pasta with Chilli & Basil

There is nothing as delicious as Garlic Prawns.  Add these to pasta and you have heaven in a bowl.

This recipe is so quick and easy especially if, like me, you keep a large bag of green prawn cutlets in the freezer.  I leave them out for an hour or two to defrost or run under cold water – they are so so handy to use and help to create many different dishes…

Ingredients Garlic Prawn and Basil pasta

This dish can be whipped up in the time it takes to boil up the pasta.  I have everything chopped and ready to toss in when the pasta is draining.  For extra heat you can leave in the seeds of the chilli if desired…

The freshness of the basil and the sweetness of the baby tomatoes make this a beautifully fragrant pasta and I will make it again and again…  The quantities below make enough for two bowls…

Garlic Prawn Chilli and Basil Pasta

Ingredients:

Spaghetti or linguine

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

12 green prawn cutlets

1 long red chilli deseeded and chopped

2 large garlic cloves grated

6 baby Roma tomatoes finely chopped

4 spring onions finely sliced

½ cup shredded Basil

Salt & black pepper to taste

Method:

Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of salted boiling water until al dente

In the meantime heat a generous lug of good olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.

Add the prawns and cook, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes or until prawns change colour.

Add the chilli and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic.

Add the pasta, tomato, green shallot and basil to the prawns and gently toss until well combined and heated through.

Drizzle with the remaining oil and gently toss until well combined.

Season with salt and black pepper to taste

Bon Appetit!  🙂
