    Southern Lady's Note:

    Simple and quick. Love those shrimp, can't get enough of them! I usually up the garlic to 3-4 cloves. Cooking time is estimated depending on the size of your prawns.

      This recipe is a special treat! I used Marsala wine which gives a very mellow flavor. I browned the onion until it was almost carmelized. Didn't use any oil just a "No Oil" spray. Mixed the spices(Chili flakes & Paprika) & garlic in the wine. When the onions were ready I put the prawns & the wine into the pan with the heat on high Coiveered it with a lid and 3 minutes later perfect pink flavor loaded prawns - Definitely will make this recipe again
