5 minutes tiger prawns with garlic, chili, and parsley.

5 minutes tiger prawns


I will be very honest with you, this was more an experiment than a targeted cooking. I’ve never cooked (actually never held in my hands) a whole prawn, meaning like with head, legs, and those long antennas. For me, it was always too yucky 🙂 In the past, I also cooked only the frozen ones which were already cleaned and even parboiled. But sometimes you just have to risk it and try out something completely new 🙂 So I bought the tiger prawns in the supermarket, cleaned them properly and cooked just by using my creativity. Nothing complicated, just a simple recipe and a couple of ingredients. And probably that’s the reason why they turned out so well 🙂 Simplicity.

So if you are not afraid of touching the tiger prawns this recipe is perfect for you. Have fun cooking and enjoy 🙂

*Important note: Make sure you clean the inside of the prawns properly. No s**t leftovers are allowed in your food 🙂

Tiger prawns with garlic, chili and parsley.

Cook Mode

Keep the screen of your device on


  • 10-12 pieces of tiger prawns (this is for 2 servings)

  • 1 red chili

  • Bunch of fresh parsley leaves

  • 2 tablespoons of butter

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1 lemon

  • 4 cloves of garlic

  • For serving: couple of slices of a fresh baguette


  • Clean the tiger prawns properly from the inside, leave the shell on and set aside. Deseed the chili and slice. Finely chop the parsley leaves. Peel and slice the garlic.
  • Heat up a bigger pan and add 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. (Thanks to the oil the butter will not burn during baking) Add the sliced chili and the garlic and roast for 1-2 minutes. Place in the cleaned tiger prawns and bake until the prawns turn orange. But not longer than 2 minutes per side. Once ready, sprinkle with the chopped parsley, stir well and serve. You can also drizzle them with 1-2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  • This food goes best with some bread or baguette and a cold beer on side 🙂 Enjoy 🙂


  • The prawns are ready once they turney pink on the outside and are not translucent inside anymore.
  • Always buy fresh prawns from a trusted source. The eyes of the prawns should be clean and shiny.
