In Sauted Spicy Prawns, prawns are cooked in lots of sauted garlic to give it nice aroma. excellent side dish.
Being from a sea food loving state ,Goa(India) always ready to make any kind of fish recipes. Besides fish recipes, I have posted lots of other Goan recipes right here in my blog, but last night, I wanted to try out a some different recipe of prawns for dinner, because I am tired of eating prawns curry or fried prawns . I was looking for recipe for prawns, which is hot and spicy and also very quick and easy to cook.
I used very few ingredients in this recipe, but to give it more taste and flavor, you can also add some tomatoes in it.
The prawns or shrimps should be de-veined and de-shelled and should be marinated for at least 10 minutes with chili Turmeric powder and some salt. They are then cooked in lots of sauted garlic to give it nice aroma. Try to use lots of coriander leaves(Cilantro) which gives it extra flavor. I used Nando’s peri peri sauce , but can be substituted with hot sauce. Since I am using peri peri sauce, which already has salt, I didn’t add extra salt while cooking but you can adjust salt according to your preference.
So, Guys, lets make this awesome and easy sauted spicy prawns recipe.
