How To Cook Prawns

1. How To Cook Prawns


  • 500 grams of raw prawns or frozen prawns
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 2 tbsp white wine
  • 100ml creamy parmesan sauce


Step 1: Prepare Prawns

Defrost the prawns: If you’re using prawns from frozen, make sure to thaw them in the refrigerator overnight or under cold running water. Don’t use warm water or leave them at room temperature to defrost as this can cause them to spoil.

Devein the prawns: Look for a black or brown vein running along the back of the prawn. Using a sharp knife or a pair of kitchen shears, make a shallow cut along the back of the prawn and remove the vein. Some prawns may not have a visible vein, in which case you can skip this step.

Remove the shell: You can leave the shell on if you prefer, but if you want to remove it, gently pull it off starting from the head towards the tail. Leave the tail intact for presentation purposes, or remove it if you prefer.

Rinse the prawns: Rinse the prawns under cold running water to remove any remaining debris or shell fragments.

Step 2: Sautee Prawns

Put a pan on the stove, add 1 tbsp olive oil and cook over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the prepared prawns, minced garlic, and chili powder and mix well.

When the prawns have been hunted, reduce the heat and add 2 tbsp butter, a little white wine, and 100ml creamy parmesan sauce. Stir well to infuse seasoning then turn off the stove.

Step 3: To garnish the dish, sprinkle some parsley on top. Serve immediately.

2. What To Serve With Garlic Butter Prawns

Serve garlic butter prawns over a bed of cooked white rice or jasmine rice. The buttery garlic sauce from the prawns will mix well with the rice, creating a tasty combination.

Pair garlic butter prawns with pasta for a satisfying meal. Linguine, spaghetti, or fettuccine work well with the rich flavors of the prawns. Toss the cooked pasta with some olive oil, garlic, and fresh herbs, and serve the prawns on top.

Garlic butter prawns are perfect for dipping with crusty bread. Serve a basket of warm bread rolls or a sliced baguette alongside the prawns to soak up the flavorful garlic butter sauce.

Balance the richness of the prawns with a fresh and crisp salad. A simple green salad with mixed lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and a light vinaigrette dressing can provide a refreshing contrast to the buttery prawns.

Now, you know how to cook prawns that taste good. I’m sure that after reading this article you will feel that making sauteed garlic butter prawns recipe is not as difficult as you think. Good luck
