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.

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.

My ex-husband was Polish and there are few dishes I really miss.  This is one of them. They were excellent.  I had them with some seafood chowder.  #2020pad #cookingforone #cooking #pierogies #seafoodchowder #sundaysarespecial

Clean up is so much easier - No more grease to deal with as it can be removed in one lot and often the pan underneath is still clean.  Why didn’t I think of this a year ago?? #2020pad  #cookingforone #cooking #airfryer #timesaver #easycleanup
