Creamy Garlic Prawns

Leave a comment

What to have for dinner when you are pressed for time, tired or just don’t want to spend ages preparing anything? Creamy garlic prawns fit the bill perfectly and look like you have prepared a complex and gourmet meal to boot. It’s probably worth mentioning that they taste divine also.

This is so easy to make and the most time consuming portion is cooking the rice that you serve with it. I adore prawns (they have to be pre-peeled though as I am lazy and they are fiddly and kind of yucky) and there is often a bag of frozen prawn meat in my freezer, just waiting for the right time to be unleashed on my taste buds in various forms.

Creamy Garlic Prawns

10 Large Green Peeled Tiger Prawns (I used 500g thawed prawn meat)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Enough to cover the pan
2 Tbls crushed Garlic
1 Tbls chopped parsley
1 cup of thickened cream

Heat the olive oil.
Fry the prawns in the oil until they’re just cooked.
Add the garlic and fry off a little then add the parsley and the cream.
Simmer, reducing the garlic cream sauce just a little.
Serve on a bed of boiled rice.
