Garlic Prawns

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Tisme

Garlic Prawns cooked in the oven (or can be cooked on top of a B.B.Q.) Serve these with thick crusty bread and dip the bread in the sauce. Serving size will depend on the amount of prawns you get.

Wonderful recipe, and so classy looking. The calorie/kilojoule count is through the roof. I made half a batch for three people, and we all loved it. So I reckon you could adjust the existing recipe to say it will serve 6 to 8. I've saved the leftover (now flavoured) oil to use in other recipes. Yummo!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Shell the prawns, and leave the tail intact. (With small sharp knife, make a slit down the back of the prawns and carefully remove the back vein. Wash the prawns and pat them dry.).
  2. Divide the oil between 4 individual heatproof dishes, add 30gr butter to each dish & add 2 crushed cloves of garlic into each dish. Divide the chopped chillies between the 4 dishes.
  3. Season with salt and pepper & put the dishes onto an oven tray and place in a moderate oven for 10-15 minutes or until the butter and oil are very hot.
  4. Very carefully remove the dishes and tray from the oven & divide the prawns between the dishes. Return to oven for about 8-10 minutes, or until prawns change colour. Note: Your cooking time will depend on the size of the prawns.
  5. Serve immediately sprinkled with chopped parsley.
