About this recipe: A simple yet impressive prawn dish just like you'd find in a great restaurant! The star anise gives a hint of exotic flavour to the prawns, and my guests loved it.


Serves: 4 

  • 100ml double or whipping cream
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 12 baby carrots
  • 300g prawns

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Bring the cream to the boil in a small saucepan. Immediately remove from the heat, add the star anise and let the cream infuse while you prepare the rest of the dish.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and cook and stir the onions with the baby carrots until the onions are softened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in the prawns, and cook and stir until the prawns are pink and opaque, about 5 minutes. Remove the star anise from the infused cream and pour over the prawns. Simmer for a minute, then serve immediately.
