Serving: 4
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 5 hours
Total Time 5 hours 20 minutes


  • 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


  • Put 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.
  • Slow cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  • In last hour add mushroom. At this time check if there is enough garlic to tour taste.
  • Serve with your choice of side, I used pasta.


  • Ensure prawns are adequately peeled and deveined.
  • Stirring is not vital but may help breakdown the cream cheese during cooking.
  • Other optional inclusions:
  • - Bacon
  • - Vegies
  • - Other herbs and spices to your taste

  1. I cooked this on Low for 4 hours and over cooked it the prawns were all soft and mushy might try this again but no were near as long

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 5 stars
