Garlic Butter Prawns

Garlic Butter Prawns

Hello TIBH fam! 

I am so excited for when winter approaches. It's time to grill anything and everything. And when you get your hands on fresh prawns that are in abundance, you want to try all thase dishes that has been always tempting you, isn't it?! Well, basically this recipe requires minimal effort and minimal ingredients yet, the flavors are intense! 😍

The prawns are grilled and slathered with garlic butter which intensifies the flavors of the dish. Cooking time of prawns is so less when compared to other proteins, so keep in mind not to over cook which would spoil the texture and juiciness of the prawns. 

Not only is this yummy, it is also keto friendly. Garlic-butter-prawns are a match made in heaven. The prawns are threaded onto skewers that are soaked in water at least for half an hour if grilling over coal so that the skewers doesn't burn. The skewers start from the tail and are pushed upwards.. You may also grill in a grill pan. And a squeeze of lemon juice gives that tangy finish to the final product. Pair it with a nice crusty bread and you are good to go! 

Without further ado, let's get started! 

Ingredients : (makes for 2 people) 

  • 15 - 20 fresh big prawns/shrimps, cleaned and deviened 
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 5-6 garlic cloves, finely chopped 
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper Powder 
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice 
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley , chopped


  1. In a small skillet/pan, allow the butter to melt, drop your finely chopped garlic and sauté until fragrant, make sure it doesn't burn. 
  2. The prawns are marinated in salt and pepper, and threaded onto the skewers and brushed with the garlic butter. 
  3. Grill for 3 minutes each side. 
  4. Once the prawns are cooked and removed to a plate. Pour the rest of the garlic-butter mixture with the dash of lemon juice over the cooked prawns. 
  5. Garnish with lemon and parsley. Enjoy hot! 😋

Notes :

  • Don't cook the prawns for too long. 
  • Keep the tail on for presentation purpose.
