Recipe: Garlic Butter Prawns

This recipe is really easy and takes no time at all to whizz up – so a great starter dish for a dinner party. Prawns are inherently fancy, so you will also be able to impress, with minimal effort. Although the recipe calls for raw prawns, it isn’t the end of the world if you want to just pre-cooked prawns – just take care not to overcook the meat (as it will be harder to infuse the prawns with the same flavour in a shorter time), so you could marinate the prawns before cooking.


  • olive oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • chili, just a pinch
  • 75 g butter
  • 500 g raw prawn cutlets
  • 2 T fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon


  1. Add the butter, garlic, oil and chilli into a medium pan over low heat. Allow it to cook for about 10 – 15 minutes – don’t rush it, as if the garlic burns it doesn’t taste anywhere near as good.
  2. Increase the heat and add the prawns. Cook for about 5 minutes, then add the parsley and salt & pepper.
  3. Serve with lemon – see, easy!
