Lemon Garlic Prawns

Lemon Garlic Prawns

This Lemon Garlic Prawn recipe is an incredibly easy way to have what seems to be a very fancy meal.  I made this for myself while Rod was in the hospital and am making again (with the changes I incorporated) so he can enjoy it too.  It’s definitely one I’m adding to our rotation.

This recipe is based on ntbella‘s excellent one on AllRecipesUK.

Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 500g prawns, shelled
  • Sliced onions
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 75ml white wine
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat the butter in a large frying pan.
  2. When melted add the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes until the butter is flavoured.
  3. Add prawns to the pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until pink.
  4. Remove the prawns, add onion slices, lemon juice, white wine and seasoning.
  5. Cook 3 or 4 minutes until the liquid is well blended and the onion crisp-tender.
  6. Add the prawns back in, stir through for a minute or two to let the flavours combine, then serve over angel hair pasta.
Notes
The pasta can be mixed right into the pan with the prawns. Or you can put the pasta in a bowl, spoon the liquid over the pasta then top with the prawns. Add a sprinkle of parmesan cheese if desired.

19Feb22  Lentil patties with a quickly made garlic aioli and horseradish sauce for it.  They turned out good, but it was quite a bit more work than I'd prefer.  I still want to experiment with making other patties with lentils.  I think they'd be ideal for lunches.  I also liked the one lentil ball that I made from the same mixture.  I think those were nice because it was just about two bites. Oh, and to keep me company there's my Mom (on the left) with my Aunt Viola on the right, in the 1950's.  #2022pad #lentils #cooking #cookingforone #familypicsforcompany
20Feb22 I was searching for something to make for my Sunday dinner that was a bit different.  This was different!  This was roasted sweet potatoes covered with prawns and then a fancy Piri Piri  topping.  It was stunning.  I found the recipe at New Idea Food (17 April 2019) - "Sweet Jacket Potato with Piri-Piri Prawns" and the recipe was actually for one person. It turned out amazing.  #2022pad #cooking #cookingforone  #sundayprawns
8Jul21 Garlic Steak and Rice Blend with a veg on the side (not shown). The rice blend is brown, wild and red rice. I just love this blend.  #2021pad #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer
10Jul21 Sometimes you just crave a big bowl of roasted veggies. Today was that kind of day. Zucchini, red and green capsicum, onion and mushrooms.  I added the last two items for the last 5 minutes so they wouldn't get over cooked. Delicious! #cooking #cookingforone #airfrying #airfryer #baking #2021pad
