If you love Prawns you will love this recipe for its simplicity and great taste. Serve either as a starter or side-dish. One thing is sure though, you will never have enough of this and will end up saying “Gosh, I wish had made more”. This recipe has been slightly adapted from a book by Sanjeev Kapoor of Khana Khazana fame.
Recipe : Half Kg. prawns, peeled, washed and deveined, 1 pod of garlic, 4 tablespoons of butter, 1 tablespoon mustard paste, juice of 1 lemon, 8-10 peppercorns coarsely crushed, salt to taste and a few sprigs of parsley or coriander leaves, chopped fine.
Peel, wash and grind garlic to a paste. Heat butter in a non-stock pan and fry the garlic paste for about a minute. Add the prawns, mustard paste, lemon juice, crushed peppercorns and salt. Simmer uncovered on low heat till prawns are cooked. Do not overcook as then the prawns will turn chewy. Sprinkle with chopped parsley/coriander and serve hot. Squeeze extra lemon just before serving and prick each prawn with a toothpick and serve hot .
