Got into the kitchen and looked out of the window, wondering what I could cook to cheer myself up from this gloomy cold weather.
So here is my comforting week night dish – Creamy garlic butter prawns
My husband tasted it and said it would be something that’s come out of Côte Brasserie (a French bistro cafe in London, UK).
The sauce is made with heavy cream, garlic and a nice load of butter. It’s super luxurious and compliments the prawns really well. Low carb and also gluten free. You will find most of these ingredients in your kitchen and this recipe is guaranteed to impress!
Here’s what goes in:
200g prawns – I got the garlic and herb pre-marinated packet from Aldi. These are great, you just defrost them and add into to cook. If you can’t get hold of marinated prawns just go for the plain ones, it works the same. With tail or no tail, either is fine.
325ml heavy cream – yes it sounds like a lot, but after tasting this dish, it’s so worth it!
150g chopped spinach – fresh or frozen
6-8 pieces sun-dried tomatoes – my original recipes calls for this. When I made it this time, I didn’t have any sun-dried tomatoes to hand so I just roasted 6 cherry tomatoes halved and it worked just the same. Feel free to use any of these.
1 medium onion
Salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chilli flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon fresh dill chopped
