Prawns and Peppers in Garlic

Updated on January 11, 2017
4 stars from 1 rating of Prawns in garlic

Quick, Simple and Delicious

This dish is originally adapted from a Tapas dish. The prawns and the peppers combined in the garlic oil are tasty and moreish.

The recipe suggests crusty bread to serve, though a nice foccaccia bread toasted is delicious. Alternatively they can be combined with a portion of spaghetti or tagliatelle to make a more hearty meal.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 2 Persons (8 if served as a tapas dish)


  • 500g Raw king prawns, shelled and prepared
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 2 Red peppers, deseeded, cored and thinly sliced
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Lemon, Juiced
  • 6 tablespoons Dry white wine
  • 1 serving Focaccia bread, per person


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok and add the sliced red peppers. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes stirring occasionally until they are soft. This is dependent on how crispy you like your peppers.
  2. Slice the garlic thinly into rough slices and add to the pan. Cook for 30 seconds until softened and golden
  3. Add the prawns to the frying pan and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, tossing on occasion. The prawns once cooked should turn pink. Precooked prawns can be used and heated through
  4. Add the lemon juice and stir for 30 seconds then add the white wine and cook for a further 2 minutes until the prawns curl and shrink slightly
  5. Serve the mix hot on toasted crunchy bread to mop up the garlic sauce
