  1. 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.

    Absolutely delicious. The fellas really loved this dish. Thanks once again! Love this group and all the time and effort you put into it is very much appreciated.

  3. 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.

  4. 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????

  5. 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!!!

  6. 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.

  7. 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..

  8. 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.

  9. 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 😊

  10. 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.

  11. It was delicious! Had so much sauce spare I added rice into the left over sauce I also had not mustard powder so I used Dijon mustard it was divine thank you

  12. 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.

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

    Thanks

  14. 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

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. One very happy ex-professional fishermen hubby here!
    Recipe was so simple & very well received (I don’t eat prawns 🤭)

  18. 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.

  19. 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! ❤️

  20. 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 😊

  21. So good and tasty and easy mmm. We added mushrooms as we enjoy them and goes with th steak. Partner better get home or I’ll eat his lol.

  22. 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.

    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 !!

  24. Joanne Talarico

    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

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