I have been asked for a recipe for Garlic Prawns a few times, and as much as I love them, I am a great believer in a high heat to cook them quickly and to brown them up a bit. Of course, if you over do the brown, you have bitter garlic…so that is where Thermomix can really come into its own. So…combined with a little Light Lemon Risotto, this recipe is quick, easy and delicious. It should have perhaps featured in Dinner Spinner…but then, what would I put up here for you all to stay tuned?
- 1 Handful italian parsley
- 6 - 8 cloves of garlic
- 20 g Cobram Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil EVOO BUY
- 700 g green prawns, shelled
- 30 g brandy
- Sea salt and pepper to taste
- 30 g cream
- Lemon juice and zest to taste
Place parsley into Thermo bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 7. Remove from bowl and set aside.
Place garlic and EVOO into Thermo bowl and chop 4 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl and saute 5 min/Varoma/speed 1.
Add prawns and cook 5 min/Varoma/Reverse + speed 1 with MC off.
Add brandy, seasoning and cream and cook 2 min/Varoma/Reverse+ speed 1 with MC off.
Add parsley through hole in lid in the last 20 sec of cooking time, just to incorporate or stir through after.
Serve over Light Lemon Risotto with lashings of fresh lemon juice, and finely grated zest over; or on simply their own with fresh crusty bread if desired.
