There are so many reasons why I love prawns. They pack up so much taste, they always absorb the flavour of ingredients they get cooked with and it really takes just a few minutes to get them ready. But I have to admit, the most favorite reason is the amount of time it saves me qhile cooking. Prawns cook so fast! This is why I keep them handy at all times. And hands down – this is my favorite way to cook prawns!
This garlic prawns recipe has been on my dinner list for so many years. Most recipes of garlic prawns use butter as the base for frying. But this garlic prawns recipe uses mustard oil, and the results are absolutely fabulous. The mustard oil adds so much flavour to this delicious snack, and also adds a lot of sweetness to it. All my friends who have tasted this ask me if I have added sugar, but it’s the mustard oil!
Seven ingredients and a pan
This recipe is going to make you fall even more in love with prawns. A total of seven ingredients and a pan is all you need to make these delicious garlic prawns. Salt, black pepper powder, mustard oil, garlic, coriander, prawns and lime juice. Pretty sure you already have all these ingredients (except the prawns) in your pantry, am I right? Well, that’s the beauty of this recipe – it is super simple! And Indian kitchens always have mustard oil. So just go for it!
A perfect snack
These garlic prawns are so delicious, you can eat the straight out of the pan (that’s what I do usually). But it also goes great with some rice or even noodles/pasta. You can try it with some lemon rice or butter garlic rice too – absolute stunner of a combination!
The best part about this ridiculously simple recipe is that it let’s the flavour of the prawns shine. And every ingredient contributes to the overall flavour in a beautiful way. This garlic prawns recipe is a perfect example of how minimalism can being wonders to cooking. Just make sure the prawns are fresh, and that makes all the difference.
I make this atleast once a week – because it is just that simple! I am yet to get bored of it and I doubt I ever will. So just go ahead and try it to know what I mean.
