Christmas Prawns


The best part of Summer is the ready supply of Seafood.
Living in a seafood town we have plenty of choice from the school prawns to the locally caught flat head and beautiful oysters.
Here is a simple prawn dish full of flavour and incorporating the Christmas colours of red and green which is sure to impress your guests.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Christmas Prawns

1/4 cup olive oil
500 g fresh green prawns, shelled with tail intact
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
handful of continental parsley, chopped
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine
salt and pepper to taste

Heat up a frypan or wok to medium high, add oil, garlic and chilli, fry for 1 minute or until garlic just starts to turn brown.
Add the prawns and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Add lemon juice, wine and parsley then keep stirring for 2 more minutes.
Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Christmas to you and your family.  I hope you have a relaxing and festive break.
Buon appetito, enjoy Merryn xx

  11. You are fortunate to have freshly caught seafood close by, I usually buy flash frozen, still good but not great. This recipe looks delicious and perfect for a festive evening and simple enough for a week night meal.
