Finely dice a large white onion
Sautee in butter and garlic
Add 75 ml of white wine
Add 75 ml of cream ... when simmering
Add 500 Grams of green King Prawns
Simmer Gently one or two minutes.
Cook until prawns starting to go pink (don't overcook)


All up it takes about 5 minutes and is very very tasty!

Serve on rice or a big juicy steak

Creamy garlic prawns on steak???

Mmmmm that is delicious.

Although I might personally substitute crayfish for king prawns - I find them less chewy and more flavorsome \:\/

Well whatever works for you. I personally don't like either crayfish or crabmeat.

Don't know why, the rest of my family love it. I try it every few years just to see if my taste has changed again something that they do continue to do over the years.

I'm going to try your mousaka this weekend. I LOVE greek food. Actually I LOVE food all around. One of the few great simple pleasures in life I think.

Good idea, and I'm flattered.

I'm assuming you say 'aubergine' rather than 'eggplant' over there? ;\)

Will you be using lamb or beef for the recipe?

I haven't tried the lamb myself, it should be good though if you enjoy saturated fat ;\)

It can be done with pork or poultry mince too (or a veggie substitute), but they lack the same rich flavour when used in this recipe.

Probably beef. I'll see what looks good in the butchers when I do my shopping today. And no, we say eggplant here (in Adelaide at least), these things change from state to state here.

I'd recommend the extra-lean variety. It costs a bit more but is much nicer, at least to my tastes.

Adelaide's climate is not dissimilar to Greece, I have heard. I'd eat al fresco if it's not too hot - just keep the bugs off the food!!! \:D

We're actually having a hot spell ATM. It's been over 30 c for the last week. If we get to 11 days in a row over 30 it's a new high record. Looks like it's well and truly on the cards.
