Garlic and Herb Prawns

Tiger prawns shrimps roasted on frying grill pan with green sauce, lemon and garlic on wooden background

A light and tasty supper


Preparation time: 25 minutes  + marinating time

Cooking Time: 5-6 minutes

Serves: 2




12 Raw prawns in their shells

Juice of half a lemon

2 Garlic cloves – crushed

3 tbsp Chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

3 tbsp softened butter

Salt and pepper




Rinse the prawns. Use a sharp knife to slice along the back of each prawn from head end to tail and remove the thin black intestine.


Mix the lemon juice with the garlic, herbs and butter to form a paste. Season well with salt and pepper and spread the paste over the prawns. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.


Preheat a frying pan. Fry the prawns until cooked, tossing them several times to distribute the heat evenly.


Turn out on to warm plates and drizzle with the juices from the pan.


Serve with lemon wedges and crusty bread.
