Garlic Cream King Prawns recipe

Garlic Cream King Prawns!

Serves 4.

  • 2 cups (370g or 13oz) rice
  • 16 raw king prawns, peeled and de-veined
  • half a cup cup (125ml or 4.2fl oz) cream
  • 1 tbsp. (2 cloves) freshly crushed garlic

In a large saucepan boil the rice, then rinse under hot water. Meanwhile, 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 colour.

Serve on a bed of rice or with steamed vegetables and I am in H.E.A.V.EN!


Now if you just happen to have a glass of white wine in your hand, add a splash or two to the prawns and reduce to intensify the flavour, add a little chilli and top with parsley or shallots, then you are well on your way to a fabulou night!


You can buy lactose free creams on the market like Zymil here in Australia, OR you can use coconut cream. Both work perfectly.


At times our members of our 4I Team One 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 a welcome addition before adding the cream.

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.
