Easy Creamy Garlic Prawns

These simple prawns are a great, easy starter for a dinner party. They also make a really simple and delicious dinner for the family served with boiled rice and some greens.


  • 24 large green prawns

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil

  • 1 ½ cup thickened cream

  • Handful of basil, finely chopped

  • Pepper and salt


  • 1.

    Peel prawns and de-vein, leaving the tails in tact.

  • 2.

    Heat the butter or oil over medium to low heat, toss in the prawns and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes until prawns are ¾ cooked (they will have coloured but not be cooked through).

  • 3.

    Add cream, turn up the heat and cook for five minutes or until the sauce is thick and heated through.

  • 4.

    Take off the heat, add the basil and season with salt and pepper.

  • 5.
