Garlic Butter Prawns with Beech Mushrooms

Thursday, March 27, 2008 | Labels: , , |

I love prawns, basically seafood of most kinds - and I love garlic so these prawns smothered in garlic and wine butter were perfect. I added some beech mushrooms I had in the fridge into the mix and they provided an interesting texture to the dish. Tasted great too! The fun thing about cooking is that you can be creative, sometimes it works out and sometimes it does not but it's always fun! These prawns would serve as a great party dish as well. You can also opt to just cook the prawns without the mushrooms.



20 medium sized raw prawns/ shrimp
Beech mushrooms (optional)
4 cloves garlic, sliced
1 stick of butter
1 tsp corn starch
1/4 cup of white wine
Salt to taste
Italian seasoning or chopped parsley


Simply heat the pan until hot. Next add in the butter, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces for easier cooking. When the butter is half melted, add the garlic slices in. Once fragrant, add the white wine and stir around for a couple of minutes. You may add the corn starch now if you wish to thicken the sauce. Finally add in the prawns and mushrooms (if using), saute until prawns and mushrooms are cooked. Add salt to taste. Sprinkle some Italian seasoning or parsley on top and serve. The sauce is great as a dipping sauce for crusty bread as well. The darling little mushrooms provide a nice touch to an otherwise more or less classic dish.
