This one is absolutely delicious and a quick easy recipe when you are wanting a little bit of fancy for dinner as a change.

Fantastic , love this it’s a 5 out of 5. The leftover sauce freezes well too.

This was absolutely scrumptious. I wish that I would have made this along time ago but at least I have now. Husband loved it and gave praise. The one thing I changed was substituting the flour for Xanthan gum (keto) Will definitely be having this again

Oh my gosh, this sauce is to die for !! I made Surf and Turf for my husbands 50th birthday and topped the steak with Creamy Garlic Prawns. My family loved it !!

We tried this recipe and loved it. We used lactose free items and it turned out perfectly. My partner said it would have been better with something on the side as i only made it like this and didnt do any side dishes.

These are a regular in our house because they always turn out perfect every time. Easy to follow instructions that are a beautiful accompaniment as a steak topper. Highly recommend 😊

This recipe is amazing! Had the prawns as a very decadent and delicious steak topper! Will never make them any other way again! Thank you! ❤️

Absolutely loved this. I only used 250g prawns for the two of us and added some Perino brand (very sweet from coles) cherry tomatoes and parsley in the last 10 minutes. Served it with pasta.

Made these for tea last night and they were amazing. I used the garlic prawns from the Coles deli. I still used garlic and butter. I added extra flour and cream as I used alot of prawns. I had mine on for an hour all up. Was quick and easy. Will be adding it to my weekly meal plan.

OMG it is yummm 😋 made it last night for dinner – better than any restaurant I’ve ever had.
*we did use “dollop” cream as that’s all that was available at our local supermarket – it did split a little, but the chef (sometimes it’s handy being married to one) jumped in and saved it for me!

This recipe was easy and absolutely delicious! Served on pasta with broccoli and carrot.

You could yes but leave them in there as little as possible just to warm through then out so they don’t overcook 🙂

Is it ok to put cooked prawns in at end

Karen Davoren

January 10, 2020

Amazing and so easy. Everyone is already asking for it again!

We use a cream called cooking cream that resists splitting when heated. What’s that called for you? Some UK folks tell me it’s creme fraiche?

We’ve now done this several times and love it!! Following Marie Norris’s lead last night I tried this with squid rings, which I gave 10 minutes of cooking time. Excellent, the prawns remain my and my wife’s favorite but the calamari was nice to. The common denominator is the amazing creamy garlic sauce that this recipe produces. My ‘favorite find’ of 2019 closely followed by Mee Goreng

Hi Paulene, what cream do you use for this recipe? – in the UK, we have double cream, single cream, whipping cream

I made this for dinner tonight for my husband and I, it was so so yummy and super easy (apart from peeling and deveining the kilo of prawns-lol). I added parsley through the sauce.

This has been on our to try list since it was first posted.
Finally tonight we did and it was amazing, so easy and before we knew it we had a lovely thick garlic sauce that just needed prawns to be added.
Simple but oh so delicious!

Will definitely be doing again and may even double the sauce and try adding some squid rings as well next time.


July 8, 2018

Wow so easy and delicious. I used 500g frozen raw prawns instead of 1kg, lovely amount of sauce left for tomorrow night’s dinner. The prawns were so tender. This we will definitely go onto the fave list 😊

Very easy and it was a hit with my friends.

Yum! Was hesitant to do seafood in the slow cooker but was extremely impressed. A Must try…

Amazing dish! I used lactose free cream as one of my children is intolerant. The cream held together well. Two family members had the steak with it, and three family members had it with rice. Both were judged to be delicious, so it will be on our list of noms to have in the future.

Yes I always use cooking cream personally when I slow cook with it 🙂


December 8, 2017

Is the cream you use ‘cooking cream’?

Marie Norris

October 29, 2017

Absolutely fabulous recipe – I substituted 300g of Squid rings for the prawns and it was heavenly on top of steak. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


October 27, 2017

The easiest and best garlic prawns I’ve eaten. Wanted to cook them in a hurry one night so cooked the sauce in a frypanand added the prawns. Turned out really well..


September 16, 2017

Didn’t thicken up enough for me but holy wow! Was amazing! Didn’t add the mustard powder because I’m not a fan but 100% fall apart tender Prawns. Served with pasta. Would do again.


May 22, 2017

awesome! I also altered recipe with gourmet garden in a tube herbs, thai seasoning, coriander and lemongrass. A squeeze of each, and used coconut milk instead of cream. Makes a beautiful subtle prawn curry! You could also use chicken. Thank you for the idea!!!

Delightful subtle flavour and the prawns were so tender. Will definitely do again. My husband loved it.

Everything is slow cooker 🙂


August 12, 2016

Sounds delish and can’t wait to try, but I’m not sure if all steps are done in the crockpot? Do you do butter & garlic on stovetop????

Sharni Krygger

August 2, 2016

Very easy recipe to follow and not too complicated 🙂 Super tasty! can’t wait to cook it again!


July 28, 2016

Absolutely delicious!! Made half the amount and it was more than enough for the 2 of us!!

I cooked this last night with pasta it was amazing ? i will be doing it again

That’s correct – all slow cooking


June 6, 2016

Please excuse a silly question from a male but, I presume this is ALL done in the slow cooker. That when you say “heat on high”, you mean “high” on the slow cooker.


May 8, 2016

Soo easy and better than I’ve had in a restaurant, will be making these again and again!

Cooked these last night. Halved recipe because there was only 2 of us. Sauce was a little runny but otherwise very good. Husband wants it again so it’s now on my meal planner. Served with salad as a main dish.
