Steamed Prawns with Garlic Recipe

Steamed Prawns with Garlic is a really simple dish, and it costs much less to make it at home. As you know, restaurants always charge a premium for seafood dishes. The prawns cook really fast (the actual steaming time is 5 minutes or less) and they go well with garlic. Try to use bigger prawns because it’s easier to butterfly them and to stuff the garlic mixture into the cavity.

If you like garlic and prawns like I do, you will like this recipe. If you find that garlic is too sharp or spicy for your liking, you can reduce the amount of chopped garlic used. I use a lot because I love garlic.

    that’s a good amount of garlic.

    do you buy ready chopped ones? if not, what garlic chopper do you recommend? I didnt like the smell lingering on my hands! :)

      I either use garlic press or an electric chopper. I sometimes short-cut by using peeled garlic cloves. For ready chopped ones, I use them more for stir-fries than for a dish where the garlic is center-stage. But it’s totally depends on how much time you have on your hand :)
