Curry Prawns

Hey everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great day.

If you’ve seen a lot of my posts you’ll know that I feature prawns quite often and I am always looking to improve on the sauce that goes with it. In today’s recipe I’ve used a little coconut cream which has quite a distinctive flavour but adds a beautiful creamy texture to the sauce. Also, recently I have been making meals for one which makes this a really quick dish to create even if you are short for time.

As you can see from the image I ate these prawns with fried dumpling and sweetcorn, which is a little inspiration however, I can imagine that rice and other vegetables would be just as good.

Recipe: Curry Prawns (serves 1)


Handful of prawns

Sprinkle of salt, paprika and chilli powder

1 garlic clove – crushed

1/2 tsp curry powder

Pinch of oregano

50ml water

5g creamed coconut

1 tsp tomato ketchup

1 inch spring onion – sliced

Pinch of sugar


  • Season the prawns with a little salt, paprika and chilli and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the garlic for a few minutes.
  • Next add the curry powder and oregano.
  • Stir in the water, creamed coconut and tomato ketchup and leave to simmer gently until the coconut has melted and the liquid has reduced slightly.
  • Then add the sugar, spring onion and prawns for 3 minutes until the prawns are piping hot.
