- Prawns, cleaned and de-veined.
- Garlic Paste about one tablespoon.
- Pepper Powder
- A one inch piece of cold butter
Mix all ingredients except the butter and then carefully place the prawns in a moderately hot nonstick pan. Do not stack them up. After a min or two place the cold butter in the middle of the pan. Now slowly and carefully shake the pan around. The butter will start melting and also knock the prawns causing them to get free from the pan. When the pan makes a loud sizzling sound, remove from heat and keep rotating the prawns in it. When the sound goes away, return to heat. Keep repeating this for about 5 to 6 times. This much time is enough for the prawns to get cooked.
Its always a good idea to slice up a prawn and check if its done. This one step will make you confident about the prawns being cooked and also save you from overcooking the remaining prawns.
