About this recipe: A simple but oh-so delicious prawn recipe. Prawns are sauteed in butter and combined with a luscious garlic, mushroom and white wine cream sauce. Using just a bit of reduced fat cream ensures that this dish tastes rich but is easier on the waistline.
Don't throw away the heads and shells of the prawns, there's a lot of flavour in them. Fry the heads and shells in a little oil, once cooked add some boiling water, half a cup will do, then cook for at least five minutes crushing the heads with the back of a wooden spoon. Then pass it through a very fine sieve and reduce it as far as you want, the more you reduce the stronger the flavour. I fry the mushrooms with a shallot, makes it a bit sweeter. - 17 Jun 2016

Very tasty! I used ready cooked large prawns but pan fried them briefly in butter to add to flavour. - 26 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
