Sticky Garlic Prawns recipe

These deliciously sticky and garlicky prawns are perfect for parties. Serve them with a cool herby dip or some BBQ sauce for a seriously tasty dish. Remember to place a plain bowl on the table for the prawn shells and individual lemon water bowls for rinsing fingers. You could also remove the heads and de-vein the tails for easier eating.


  • 600g large raw prawns
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 dried red chilli
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Mince the garlic cloves and finely chop the chilli, removing the seeds if you desire.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the garlic cloves and dried chilli. Cook for around 2 minutes or until the garlic just begins to colour.

  3. Tip in the prawns and cook them for around 1-2 minutes on each side, until they turn bright pink. Season well.

  4. Once cooked, remove them from the frying pan and serve them with the garlicky oil drizzled over them.
