Prawns with Garlic Butter Sauce

Prawns with Garlic Butter Sauce
Prawns with Garlic Butter Sauce. Here is my version of an experimental Pinoy style prawns with garlic butter sauce. For this recipe I used large prawns but large shrimp may also be used. Cooking is fairly simple, it is basically similar to the Pinoy halabos recipes except for the addition of butter. I have reduced the remaining sauce for a concentrated flavour . Remember that the prawns should not be overcooked, seafood tend to become rubbery when overcooked especially these large sized prawns. Here is the recipe of my Pinoy version of Prawns with Garlic Butter Sauce.

Shrimp with Garlic Butter Sauce


1 kilo large size prawns, whiskers and horns trimmed
1/2 head garlic, crushed
1/3 block salted butter

Cooking procedure:

Prawns with Garlic Butter Sauce - Cooking Procedure

In a wok place the garlic at the bottom, then add in the prawns and 7Up season with salt to taste. Cover the wok and bring to a boil and let simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add in the butter and replace lid, continue to simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the prawns turns to bright orange. Remove the prawns from the wok and keep aside leaving the liquid. Now continue to boil the remaining liquid until it is reduced to about half. Return the prawns and stir cook for about a minute. Serve immediately with steam rice.
