Easy and Delicious Sizzling Prawns Recipe

This dish works particularly well with tiny shrimps which can be eaten whole, but any type of prawns in the shell will be fine. Choose a small flameproof dish or frying pan that can be taken to the table for serving while the prawns are still sizzling.

  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 2 tbsp (1 oz/25 g) butter
  • 1 small red chili, seeded and finely sliced
  • 4 oz (115 g) cooked prawns, in the shell
  • Sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper
  • Lime wedges, to serve


1 Rub the cut surfaces of the garlic cloves over the surface of a frying pan. This will delicately flavor the prawns and make them a little sweet. After use, discard the garlic cloves. Add the butter to the pan and melt over a fairly high heat until it just begins to turn golden brown.

2 Toss in the chili and prawns. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes until heated through, then season to taste and serve with lime wedges to squeeze over.
