Exotic and Impressive - 10 minutes Butter Prawns

This is a gorgeous recipe for butter prawns. Easy and very quick to prepare. This dish is for older children and it allows you to play with your own favourite flavours.

This recipe is for 3 to 4 people. Supplement it with a vegetable dish, which again, you could stir fry and within 20 minutes, you will have a wholesome meal on the table - with protein, vitamins and fibre.

What you will need and how to prepare

Part 1
1/2 kg Tiger prawns
Prawns de-skinned and deep fried. Deep Fried Onion
Deep fry the prawns and keep aside. I tend to clean the prawns with skin out. Some prefer to keep the tail and skin but with head off

Part 2

Fresh Curry Leaves - Fresh South Indian and Sri Lankan Herb - Citrus Aroma

3 tablespoons butter
3 fresh chillies cut in long slices (you can use dried chillies too)
Frieda's Dried De Arbol Chiles

Curry Leaves (you can get them in the supermarkets. Or click here - you can get it for less than US5. It gives a little bit of spice to the dish.)
3 to 4 garlic pips
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Butter and all other ingridients

1/2 teaspoon
soya sauce

Melt butter and add in all the rest of the ingridients.

When all is fried, add in the prawns and cook for a minute or two to allow the flavours to seep into the prawns. Garnish with handful of deep fried onions or grated coconut. I refer the onions because coconut will tend to make the dish more oily and give it an adour.
