Delicious tiger prawns in butter sauce

Delicious tiger prawns in butter sauce

Tiger Prawns are my family favourite no matter how they are cooked. They are very delicious, both in texture and in taste. Over the weekend, we had a special friend with us and I thought this special dish would just be appropriate for our lunch together. I thought I would like it a little spicy and creamy. Well, it didn’t come out as I had expected but we all liked it very much. It would have been much nicer if I had curry leaves to add to it. Anyway, here’s my recipe to share:

Ingredients A
1kg tiger prawns

Fried tiger prawns

Wash it clean. Trim the feelers and legs. Heat up some oil in the frying pan and shallow fry the prawns until they are cooked. Dish it up onto a plate.

Ingredients B

1C water

Butter sauce seasoning

Mix everything together in a bowl.

Ingredients C

1/2 whole garlic (peel and chopped)
3T butter
3eggs (lightly beaten)

Frying chili and garlic in butter

Put the butter, garlic and chili into the frying pan. Fry until the butter is melted and the garlic and chili are fragrant. Add in the beaten eggs and stir to break them up.

Add in the Ingredients B. Stir well and add in the prawns. Mix it up and dish up onto a plate. Garnish with some parsley and serve hot. It is great with rice or noodles.

Lovely Prawns. They are one of my favorite seafoods. They taste really good even without too many seasonings. Maybe you can try the following prawn recipe. Rouxbe really liked it made it into a video


Trissa  on October 27th, 2009

Mary, I’ve been meaning to make these for some time but I completely forgot - seeing this post made me remember. Thanks!

WOW, I love prawns (like your family:) and this looks like a delicious way to enjoy them!

hey Mary
i happened to have bought some tiger prawns today. ;)
my favourite is dry fried with tomato sauce and chilies, especially with large fresh water prawns. Have never seen this recipe b4, thanks for sharing

Mary  on October 27th, 2009

@Trissa - I’m glad that my post is a reminder to you to cook this dish. I hope you cook soon and share with us your prawn dish.

@Simply Life - Looks like it’s high time you start cooking prawns again for your family. Give this dish a try. It’s simple and yet very delicious.

@3hungrytummies - Prawns with tomato sauce and chilis….sounds very delicious. I will have to try that soon. Thanks for sharing. Hope you put up on your blog.

kristy  on October 27th, 2009

Wow, these are gigantic tiger prawns which i love the most too! It’s getting really expensive over here. Can’t eat them very often now! I prefer to go with steamed boat! Love the original nice sweet seafood flavour.

Tangled Noodle  on October 27th, 2009

I would love to try this! Although fresh prawns are not readily available here, I can get some frozen ones. I’ve been stuck in a rut of preparing regular shrimp in the same recipe, over and over again - this would definitely be a delicious change of pace!

High/Low Food/Drink  on October 27th, 2009

Those prawns looks fantastic! My husband would love this recipe - especially if I kept the seeds in and made it extra spicy!

Mary  on October 27th, 2009

@Kristy - Yes, very big tiger prawns I must say. They are very delicious. I know, very expensive on your side. Over here, if I don’t convert, it’s still not too bad. Totally agree with you…very lovely in steam boat. I have to make steam boat again…very warming for cold weather.

@Tangled Noodle - I can’t get fresh tiger prawns here. The ones that I used here were frozen ones. but they are still very fresh after thawing. I’ll cook a different way the next time I buy them again. Prawns are just so delicious.

@High/Low Food/Drink - Sounds like your family loves spicy food. We have different degree of tolerance to spiciness. So I usually have chili oil ready for anyone who loves a stronger punch to a spicy dish. Hope you try out this dish soon.

Tiger prawns sound incredible!

Mary  on October 27th, 2009

@Rebecca - mmmm….love your prawn curry. I just love all curries. Curry makes my world go round :o). I just cooked chicken curry the day before. Thanks for linking my blog post to your facebook.

@Rochelle - Thanks for comment. It’s very simple. You can cook them soon. Tiger prawns just taste soooo gooood. I hope to cook them again soon.

@Natasha - Yes, they taste real great….better than any other types of shrimps.

penny aka jeroxie  on October 27th, 2009

Milk powder! Right… I will remember to try with this for sure :)

Miranda  on October 27th, 2009

Wow. These are beautiful prawns and a wonderful meal. Thank you so much for sharing a great recipe!

Mary  on October 27th, 2009

@Penny - Yes, I had to use milk powder cos I didn’t have cream at home and I also ran out of evaporated milk. But it worked well…pretty glad about it.

@Miranda - Thanks for compliment. Hope you try it out soon. We did had a really wonderful meal.

Christine@Christine's Recipes  on October 27th, 2009

Wow, beautiful prawns. We sometimes have very big beautiful tiger prawns here. The texture of prawn meat is very crunchy and “springy”. Like it cooked in any way.

Sook  on October 27th, 2009

Tiger prawns taste the best of all prawns, I think. Mmm… I want some of your prawns!

Mary  on October 27th, 2009

@Christine - Thanks for sharing. Agree with you that good, fresh tiger prawns just taste awesome cooked in any way. It’s really the best type of prawns to enjoy.

@Sook - Have to agree with you that tiger prawns are just the best of all prawns, as far as I know. Haha….come and I will cook for you.

Mathea  on October 27th, 2009

I’ve always been sort of afraid of working with crustaceans that still have the head on, but these look so good!

Next time I see good fresh prawns, I’m going to get them and try this!

Thanks for a great recipe!

Mary  on October 28th, 2009

@Mathea - Thanks for sharing. I can understand that. It’s similar to having the whole fish with the head on the plate. But they look very impressive when serving. Lovely to know you are going to try out this recipe soon.

Michael Chin  on October 28th, 2009

Tiger prawns have been and still are my fabourite! Altho I try not eating them too frequently these days cos’ of health reason, I still like to treat myself with tiger prawns on special occasions, e.g. the coming christmas holiday ..he he ..

Danielle  on November 6th, 2009

mary! You’re killin’ me. I can’t decide which one of your recipes to make first!

Mary  on November 6th, 2009

@Michael - Thanks for sharing. Hope you go for a lot of exercise and drink a lot of freshly made juices, then you can afford to eat more. Looks like you are going to have a big feast this Christmas. Wish I can join!

@Danielle - If you love tiger prawns, then you should make this one first. I really love it…my family too. It’s simple, easy and quick to cook.
