Garlic and Coriander Prawns

The second part of our Asian Tasting Feast was prepared by Alex. Unlike Oliver, Alex doesn't like scallops but LOVES prawns!! And she definitely loves Garlic Prawns. So as a twist she decided to add coriander, which I have say to say made them delicious.

This dish was really easy to prepare and cook so making it an excellent entrée for any meal, not just an asian feast. Alex decided to serve these in little bowls with 3 prawns in each. I guess she didn't want anyone to miss out as they were very yummy!!

Garlic and Coriander Prawns

Serves: 4
Points per serve: 1.5

12 large green prawns, shelled but tails intact
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons crushed garlic
3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh corinader
freshly ground black pepper

Rinse and dry prawns. In a large bowl place all ingredients, mix well, cover and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes for flavours to develop.

Heat a frying pan over high heat and add the prawn mixture. Stirfry prawns for 3 - 4 minutes or until pink in colour and liquid has reduced slightly.

Serve immediately.

I do not blame them, if I had a choice between the two it would always be shrimp :)

This sounds great!
