Finger Lickin’ Garlic Prawns …

After my Frugal week, it’s time to splurge, I still have a couple of bits left from my Christmas stash- one of these items, are some Aldi beautiful huge tiger prawns. I had taken them out of their box and put into a freezer bag to save space.


Now, I believe that good produce doesn’t need too much doing to it, so fried in a  simple garlic butter and lots of it 🤗


I make garlic butter and freeze it ready to use – I make it in the Thermomix 4 fat cloves of garlic peeled and whizzed at speed 4 for 30 seconds, add a whole pack of salted butter, roughly chopped and a pack of parsley and mix on speed 4 till blended, turn out and roll into a sausage in cling film, ready to slice and use.


Melt some butter in a shallow pan, heat till gently bubbling, add the huge prawns and cook through on both sides till pink and succulent- I have added a pinch of black pepper, the juice of half a lemon and a sprinkle of chopped Corriander, into a serving dish and eat as soon as they are cool enough to be picked up 😍


With some homemade bread to soak the juices I have made some Bagguettes 300ml warm water, a pack of yeast, 500g bread flour, a good kneed, leave for an hour to rise, then split the dough in half.


Each half flatten into a rectangle and roll into a baguette shape, Leave to rise again for half an hour then into a preheated oven for 40 mins with a splash of water in a traybat the bottom of the oven, till golden brown


A simple supper but gorgeous


add a chilled glass of dry white wine – perfect….

I have made dark chocolate Icecream for pud 😉

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...

  1. Scrummy! We’re having Schezuan prawns tomorrow, with spring rolls, prawn toast and crispy kale seaweed 😋 You cook some tasty looking meals, and am I right that most of your ingredients come from Aldi?
