A fabulous and incredibly aromatic meal which packs quite a punch in terms of flavour.  Super easy to prepare too!

Ingredients for Creamy Garlic Prawns
500 gm
prawns, shelled and de-veined
3 tbsp
butter
3
cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
or 1 tsp. garlic paste
1 cup
fresh/cooking cream
2 tbsp
finely chopped coriander or basil
a dash of black pepper powder
salt to taste
Ingredients for Lime & Coriander Fried Rice
3 cups
pre-cooked plain white rice
(day-old leftover rice is best)
2 tbsp
butter or oil
juice of 1 lemon
5 tbsp
finely chopped coriander
1-2
red chilli, chopped
Instructions 

Heat the butter in a frying pan, add the prawns and cook for about 3 minutes until they are almost done and pink. Turn them over once during cooking. Add the garlic paste and half of the chopped coriander. Stir-fry for half a minute, taking care not to burn the garlic. Remove the prawns onto a plate and set aside.

Next add the cream into the same saucepan and season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to low and allow the cream to gently simmer for a minute. Put the prawns back into the pan and mix. Simmer for another minute and turn off the heat. Careful not to over-cook the prawns as that will make them toughen.

Adjust salt and pepper to your taste. Garnish with remaining chopped coriander. Serve over rice or spaghetti.

Here's how to prepare the Lime & Coriander Fried Rice

Heat the butter or oil, add the cooked rice, warm everything through. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the chopped coriander and chopped red chilli. Stir everything until well-combined. Serve with an extra slice of lemon on the side.

Enjoy! :)

W/Salaam, sorry have never tried making cream at home.

Asalam alaikum can we make cooking cream at home instead of buying it

i added cornflour to the creamy prawn coz it wasnt creamy enough. also added mixed veggie, mushrooms and pepper bell as well as siaw - soya sauce- to the lime coriander rice

tried this recipe out last night, was totally awesome! i added finely chopped chillies for a kick! and added some milk to the cream mixture to make it more of a soup. served it with garlic rolls!

Hi, you can use any veggies that you like, chopped small.

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

200 ml

I was so excited to cook prawns for the first time, and I used this recipe... It turned out delish!
Thank you so much; it definitely made my day.

Also, does "shelled and de-veined" also mean having the tails removed?

Hi, thanks for the lovely feedback! Shelled means the shell removed either in its entirety or just the top part if you want to leave the tails on. Deveined means the string like vein that holds the dirt on the top part of the prawns.
