Creamy Garlic Prawns Instructions

via Kim McKosker, 4 Ingredients.

Place garlic and cream in a wok or frying pan and over medium heat gently bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes and the sauce will reduce and become thicker.

Add the prawns and cook for 2 minutes or until they have turned orange in color. Kim suggests serving on a bed of rice with steamed veggies. She says it is heaven on a plate!

Kim’s Optional Suggestions:

If you just happen to have a glass of white wine in your hand, add a splash or two to the prawns. Then reduce to intensify the flavor, add a little chili, and top with parsley or shallots.

Kim’s Kitchen Notes

You can buy lactose-free creams on the market like Zymil here in Australia, OR you can use coconut cream. Both work perfectly. Of course, it’s up to you if you prefer to use carnation cream or low-fat cream. Tailor it to your needs and use common sense.

Kims Kitchen Tips:

At times, members of our 4 Ingredients Team will add half a teaspoon of Tabasco sauce for a bit of a punch.

If you are preparing this dish for a special occasion, a nice dry white wine (2 tbsp) added to the pan and reduced is lovely before adding cream.

Kim says “These are just options, but I can tell you there is absolutely no need to stray from the original 4 Ingredients, it’s perfect as is.”

The tips given are just versatile suggestions as tried and tested by the 4 Ingredients family.”
