Prawns in a pan
I used my new little metal pan for this dish and then served it up straight from the hob in it. This is my Prawns in a pan. It really is just so very simple, and it got a big thumbs up from Mary. So that can’t be too bad hey? It’s a little spicy, with a nice garlic kick, but it truly is so simple, but delicious. You are gonna love it.
For a one-person Prawns in a pan starter, or snack you’ll need;
- 6 fresh and peeled prawns – run a knife down the back to get rid of the poo tract. This will also then butterfly the prawns when they cook. They’ll look pretty then as they will curl up;
- 1-2 teaspoons of smoky paprika;
- 3 finely sliced garlic cloves;
- 1 knob of butter;
- A pinch of salt & pepper; and
- Some good Olive oil.
In to the pan goes the oil and garlic. Let that sizzle for a while and throw in the prawns and paprika and let that cook down a while. Throw in the salt & pepper and butter. Stir them around to get all the prawns nicely coated. Cook the prawns until plump and pink – do not overcook though. Nothing worse than a tough prawn.
Serve straight from the heat in the pan, maybe with a little bit of crusty bread to soak the sauce.
Hey, wait a minute was that really it?
Yep, it truly is that simple folks.
