We all know grandma’s cooking is the best. But no matter how many times we try, we’ll never be able to cook her dishes as good as she does. Oh well… here’s my version of her garlic prawns (under £5!).
This recipe was also published in the Guardian! (Link here).
Portions: serves 3-4
Prep time: 15 mins Cooking time: 30 mins Total time: 45 mins
What you will need:
- Chef’s knife
- Chopping board
- Frying pan/wok
- Wooden spoon
- 1 medium onion (sliced)
- 3 peppers (sliced)
- 5 garlic cloves (finely chopped)
- 2 heaped tbsp butter
- 250g cooked and peeled prawns (I defrosted a pack from Tesco)
- 1/4-1/2 tsp salt (depends on how much you like salt)
- 50ml water
- Place the butter in your pan and melt on medium heat
- Once melted, add the onion and garlic, stir occasionally for 8 minutes
- Then, add the peppers and again, stir occasionally for 8 minutes
- Next, add your prawns (with the prawn juice if there is any) along with the water, stir and leave on low/medium heat for 12 minutes
- Lastly, add your salt for taste. Grandma’s garlic prawns done.
I find that this dish goes best with fresh bread, spaghetti or with a tortilla
