Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a skillet over high heat.
  2. When it starts foaming, add prawns. Cook until they start to change from translucent to white. Add garlic, stir for 20 seconds – by now the prawns should be white (but still raw inside).
  3. Add wine – it will steam and bubble rapidly. Cook for 30 seconds or until you can no longer smell the alcohol and half evaporated.
  4. Add cream, parmesan, salt, and pepper. Simmer for 1 minutes or until it thickens slightly.
  5. Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve immediately, garnished with fresh parsley and lemon wedges on the side if desired.
