Garlic And Lemon Prawns

a quick summer recipe



  • 1. raw king prawns (or you can use ready cooked although they will not absorb as much flavour as they cant be left in the pan as long)
  • 2. 3 - 4 garlic cloves
  • 3. 2 lemons
  • 4. parsley (preferably fresh although you could use dried)
  • 5. A little white wine
  • 6. Salt and black pepper (preferably freshly ground.
  • 7. olive oil (or any other vegetable oil)


1. place a small amount of oil in the pan and start to cook the prawns, when they are beginning to turn pink add a glug of white wine.

2. Peel and finely grate the garlic into the pan before the alcohol burns off. (do not add the garlic before the wine or after the alcohol has burned off or it will burn).

3. Add the zest of both lemons and the juice of 1 and leave to simmer until some of the liquid disappears.

4. Add the parsley and salt and pepper.

5. Remove from the pan and serve with salad or new potatoes.

*Tip* you could also serve with cous cous cooked in vegetable stock with lemon vinegarette (the zest & juice of 1 lemon, salt & pepper, extra virgin olive oil, white wine vinegar and corriander)

*Tip* 2 - Add a small pot of half - fat creme fraiche (about 7 tablespoons) to the prawns and stir the sauce into cooked pasta for a great dish!
