  1. Combine the brown rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and cook until all the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter with the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat; cook the garlic in the butter and oil until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Pour in the wine and lemon juice; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer. Stir in the prawns and cook until the prawns turn pink, stirring regularly, 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the parsley over the prawns and cook another 2 minutes. Add the cornflour to the liquid and stir until it thickens, about 1 minute more. Serve hot over the brown rice.
