Buttery Prawns Sauteed in Garlic

Recipe : Buttery Prawns Sauteed in Garlic

Ingredients

  • 10 Gray Prawns or Black Tiger Prawns
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • Ground Black and White Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil

1. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan.

2. Once oil is hot, place prawns in pan and stir fry till slightly half cooked.

3. Toss in the butter, garlic, salt and pepper at the same time. Stir the prawns to ensure even coating of spices.

4. Cook until all the prawns are nicely cooked.

5. Serve hot with rice.

Note : Prawns are easily overcooked and once they are completely red, they should be served. This way, their juices are not lost to the heat and the freshness will still remain.

Cook's Tip : Usually the garlic will be stir-fried first to bring out their fragrance, but I chose to place the garlic in after stir frying the prawns. In logical processes the prawns will take a longer time to cook and if the garlic is cooked first, they will end up being burnt and bitter. So keep this in mind =) [I learnt this from my Chef Uncle Jack. Thank Unc.]
