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.

Cook time: 
Total time: 
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.

21Sep20  Quick and easy pasta and veg made with @vettapasta’s new Ready Pasta Fibre Penne.  I wanted to have some pasta for dinner but was having leftovers so didn’t feel like cooking. I had a packet of the Ready Pasta so made that, microwaved my green beans and then added parmesan and garlic butter to give it some WOW.  Perfect dish for one person and all done in under 5 minutes.  It went well with my leftovers and I had my veggies too.  The pasta is a winner. It tastes exactly like I’d made it myself, and saved me a heap of time too.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #easypastaandveg
31Aug20 I had some leftover chicken wings so had them over some noodles with broccoli and green beans. It was as nice as it looks.  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #muchlatergram #chickenwings #broccoli #greenbeens #leftovers
18Aug20  I made barbacoa beef in the slow cooker and made soft tacos with some of it for for my dinner. YUM!  #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #muchlatergram #barbacoa #softtacos #tacos
11Aug20  I had chicken burgers. I did not have burger buns, but I had hot dog buns. So I used one, cut it in half and job done.  These were good. I was hoping that by limiting to one hot dog bun it’d keep my glucose levels down but no, that wasn’t the case. I blame the breading on the burgers. Yeah, that was it.  #cooking  #cookingforone #muchlatergram #rowing #darkhorserowing  #homegymlife #keepmoving #2020pad #chickenburgers #hotdogbuns
02Aug20  Sunday dinner - a nice warm bowl of ramen soup with prawns. The soup base and noodles were from a kit this time. I just added prawns instead of chicken, because it’s Sunday and that’s prawn day in my house.  #2020pad #sundayprawns  #cookingforone #cooking #muchlatergram
10Aug20  This lasagna looked great until I let it cook a bit too long and the edges took on a burnt look. It was fine and even the burnt parts tasted fine. I was really disappointed when I first saw it finished - until I had some and realised it was all ok after all.  #cookingforone #cooking #2020pad #lasagna #lookscanbedeceiving
