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.

Prep time: 
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.

Low carb, high protein spiral pasta and I was looking for a way to rev it up a bit without adding to the calories.  One chopped green/spring onion, a couple of mini roma tomatoes, some garlic and basil did the trick. A bit of parmesan rounded it off quite nicely.  Along with it, I had a pork chop (done in the air fryer) and a couple cups of brussel sprouts.  Yum!  #cooking  #cookingforone #lowcarb #highprotein

This week I made a Thai curry with asian veggies and skipped the pasta in favour of trying a wild rice mix I found - the first I’ve seen in Australia.  It was brown rice, wild rice and a red rice I’ve never heard of before.  Very nice!  #cookingforone #cooking #2019pad #prawns #thaicurry #wildrice

This was an avocado prawn ‘salad’ that I made to go inside a couple of nice rolls that I had.  It turned out fantastic.  #2019pad #cooking  #cookingforone #sundaytea #prawns #avocado

And it was sooo good.  2 slices of bacon, lots of mushrooms, toast with vegemite, some scrambled eggs with cheese and green onion and one over easy egg with the yolk broken so it oozed onto the toast (the way I like it). I couldn’t decide on which way to have the eggs so did both just to see if I could.  #2019pad #cooking #breakfastfordinner #eggs #scrambledeggs #eggsovereasy #mushrooms #toastwithvegemite
