How to cook Peeled Garlic Prawns In Frying Pan

Updated on August 14, 2017

Where to get your Prawns!

Have you ever had the fun of being out prawning in the middle of the night fully clothed waist deep in water trying to catch your own prawns as they are swimming towards you fast ?!

It is fun if you are into it like we were even though I wasn't that good at it being my first time and I don't enjoy wearing any more than a bikini in the water so I felt uncomfortable in clothes!

However it made a change to be eating prawns that we caught ourselves later on rather than just buying them at the local shop as we usually do and

Garlic Prawns are great for an entree especially when eating out doors as we do a lot when there are not millions of flies with extreme heat. So you want to know how to cook prawns now you have either caught them fresh or bought them from the local shop !

Garlic prawns make a delicious entree for a meal

Make sure you have a nice drop of Australian wine chilled first or whatever you prefer with your prawns. !


Raw prawns- we use a kilo

Fresh garlic



Dice garlic up till its really small .Cant beat fresh garlic and it is supposed to have many health benefits as well .

Peel a kilo of green prawns leaving the tail on them.

Have your pan hot with butter in it and when melted start heating up your garlic in the pan .

When the garlic is getting dark add a handful of prawns into the pan at a time.

Squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon over them for an extra tang !

They only take a few minutes to change colour and be ready for eating.

As prawns are a low in fat & are a good source of protein this makes for a nice healthy entree!

      I saw your answer in the forum with the sandwich photo, so I came looking for it. Instead I found these garlic prawns and now I want to try this recipe! They look fabulous. Thank you for sharing your cooking method with us.

      I live in America and only been outside of it once, so a "prawn" is a new term for me. I'm not too keen on shrimp or the alike, such as lobster. However, the hub is useful to others. I rated it up and marked it as useful. It may not be useful to me, but to others. Thank you for sharing. :)
