Creamy Garlic Prawns



  • 1 tbs olive oil

  • 500gm  Large Prawns

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 3 tbs Butter

  • 6-8 cloves, minced Garlic

  • 1/2 cup dry White Wine

  • 1 1/2 cups Cream

  • 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan

  • 2 tbsp Flat leaf Parsley


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season prawns/shrimp with salt and pepper and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, until just cooked through and pink. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.

  2. Melt the butter in the same skillet. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Pour in the white wine or broth; allow to reduce to half while scraping any bits off of the bottom of the pan.

  3. Reduce heat to low-medium heat, add the cream and bring to a gentle simmer, while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

  4. Add the parmesan cheese and allow sauce to gently simmer for a further minute or so until the cheese melts and sauce thickens.

  5. Add the prawns back into the pan, sprinkle with parsley. Taste test sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
