Butter garlic prawn


A quick and easy starter can be such a lifesaver for any party organizer. I just love different kababs and salads as starters. A seafood starter, however, has a different charm to it, don’t you think? Today, I am presenting a very easy to make prawn starter that is sure to win many hearts at your party or at a simple family dinner.

This recipe serves 3-4 portions.



  • 10-12 large prawns, cleaned and de-veined;
  • 3 tablespoon butter;
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped garlic;
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped onion;
  • ½ teaspoon each of turmeric and red chilli powder;
  • Salt and pepper;
  • 1-2 teaspoon lemon juice;
  • Lemon wedges and spring onion for garnishing.


  • Marinate the prawns in a pinch of salt, turmeric, chilli powder, ½ teaspoon lemon juice, and keep aside for half an hour.
  • Heat butter and sauté the garlic and onions together, till half-way cooked.
  • Now add the prawns and sauté. Adjust for seasoning at this stage.
  • Sprinkle pepper powder and switch off the flame.
  • Drizzle 1 teaspoon of lemon juice on top and garnish with spring onions.


Hope you enjoy this simple recipe.
