Creamy Garlic Prawns


April 5, 2018

Creamy prawns with a wonderful garlic taste.

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs
  • Yields: 4 servings


500g peeled raw prawns

300ml cooking cream

1 block philadelphia cream cheese roughly chopped

1/2 cup of white wine (or chicken stock)

Salt pepper and rosemary to taste

4 large teaspoons of minced garlic (or to taste)

4 button mushrooms sliced


1Put all ingredients except mushroom into slow cooker. Put less garlic than you may need to avoid over flavouring to your taste. Garlic can be easily added later.

2Slow cook on low for 4-6 hours.

3In last hour add mushroom. At this time check if there is enough garlic to tour taste.

4Serve with your choice of side, I used pasta.


1Ensure prawns are adequately peeled and deveined.

2Stirring is not vital but may help breakdown the cream cheese during cooking.

3Other optional inclusions:

4- Bacon

5- Vegies

6- Other herbs and spices to your taste

After reading reviews I only cooked 2 hours in total and added raw prawns 15 minutes at the end. Yummo!

I cooked this a few days ago. The sauce was to die for however the prawns came out very mushy after being in the cooker for five hours. Next time I will put the prawns in with the mushrooms

Way to much sauce and on low is cooked in around 2 hours.. if using precooked prawns, cook the sauce, then add the prawns with just enough time to heat them or they shrink and lose their flavour.. if using frozen prawns defrost first and drain excess water.

I added Gnocchi into mine and it was yummy.

It’s watery and overcooked at 2 hours on low?

The last hour would be enough time to cook the pasta but it needs extra liquid to allow for that or it will suck all the moisture out of your dish
Best to serve with cooked pasta 🙂

I halved the ingredients and cooked in the 1.5L slow cooker for 2 hours on low. I loved it but next time may do for 1.5 hours as the prawns were a little over cooked. Made for one person but would defin5be enough for 2 adult serves.

Loved this meals, took a bit of stirring to get the cream cheese to melt down. Nice easy dinner

Right near the end for cooked
Just enough time to heat through
