How Long To Cook Prawns In Pan
These hot, fried shrimp in garlic butter are my dad’s creation that now graces not only the back cover of my cookbook,
How To Cook Shrimp On The Stove
(ad), but still brings back memories of making them and eating them together where they originated: our old kitchen in France, where we used to make them with local prawns, good French butter and argue over whose I would use a piece of baguette clean the rest of the garlic and garlic butter with the skin from the pan.
At lunchtime in the local village we both enjoyed a plate of pan fried prawns, still in their shells, dipped in garlic butter and although for me this recipe replaced those prawns in my memory , for my dad they were so memorable when we made it to our grocery store at the nearby HyperU after lunch (wish our supermarket fish counters were like those in Brittany!), he picked up a packet of shrimp just to recreate this dish. We then shared some of it on almost every trip home until we sold it in 2019.
Besides the amazing taste, what I love about this recipe is that it’s so stupidly easy to make and is great as a light lunch or dinner, serve it with some delicious crusty fresh bread to mop up the delicious butter at the bottom of your bowl. I also like its versatility – you’ll notice this is an updated version of an article from 2012 and I’ve kept all the original photos from that article and added new ones, and the prawns are different from the ones we used to shoot One Pan

(not really the ones we ordered for the shoot, but the ones that arrived!), both of which are different from the big, giant ones I now buy from my fishmongers on the beach, which you can see in my uploaded photos up to date.
The cooking process is really simple. Melt a few thick slices of butter (I have the measurements below if you prefer to follow an exact recipe!) in a saucepan over medium heat until lightly bubbly. If you’re using even lightly salted butter, be very careful that the butter doesn’t burn, as the salt makes this much more likely. Peel and mince or finely chop the garlic and stir in the butter before adding the prawns until they coat the bottom of the pan. Stir them every few minutes so that they are fully coated in butter and start to heat up. Meanwhile, melt a few thicker slices of butter in the pan around the prawns. Once the butter has turned a little orange, smells good, and the prawns have warmed through, add a very large handful of chopped parsley and serve the prawns in slightly warmed bowls to prevent the butter from starting to burn . .
Eating this at home we make a mess and clean up later our only concession to setting the table is a bowl ready for the shells tossed in but if you plan to serve it to guests set a small bowl with some lukewarm water and a lemon wedge (helps degrease) so that everyone can wash their fingers after tasting, and no need for a white tablecloth!

Most prawns are frozen soon after they are caught, so the freshest prawns are the ones you buy in the freezer aisle rather than those thawed at the fish counter in the supermarket. Because shrimp are very perishable and you don’t really know how long the thawed stuff has thawed. So never, I repeat, NEVER buy shrimp that is not frozen.
If you buy frozen shrimp, you can thaw it yourself just before you need it. I never let it thaw overnight in the fridge because it will build up too much histamine that way. Histamine is the stuff that makes you sneeze and watery eyes, it can also cause mild to severe digestive issues.
What I usually do is take the prawns out of their packaging, put them in a bowl or colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 5 minutes. Stir the shrimp occasionally to make sure they are all exposed to cold water. You will know the shrimp are thawed and ready when they are no longer firm, but soft, easily pliable and slightly translucent. It will only take a few minutes. Pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel.

One minute they look a little weird and unappealing, and the next minute it’s hard to avoid eating them straight from the pan. There is absolutely no guesswork involved.
While I could probably be perfectly happy with a bowl of shrimp and nothing else, most of the time shrimp needs a side dish, usually carbs, to make it a meal.
