Garlic prawns are one of the most typical Spanish dish and they are very popular at Christmas dinners. What I like most about this dish is its simplicity: you don’t need many ingredients and it just takes a few minutes to prepare.
- They’re very rich in antioxidants such as selenium and vitamin E, which helps fight against free radicals.
- Its high selenium and zinc content helps improve the immune system.
- Rich in proteins and minerals such as iodine, they are very good at regulating metabolism.
- Thanks to their high content of vitamins B3, B12, D, E and K they are great at keeping your hair and nails healthy.
- Help the body metabolize carbohydrates and improve blood cholesterol levels.
- High protein content: between 20 and 25 grams per 100 grams of prawns.
Pay attention to the temperature of your prawns
The key to this dish is to serve it piping hot, almost to the point of boiling. I recommend that you use small individual stoneware casserole dishes to serve your prawns. Be sure to cover them with a plate to keep the heat in and prevent your guests from getting burned by and pops of oil that might shoot up.

- 1/3 cup bone broth
- 1 + 1/2 cup sour cream

Peel the prawns and sauté them in a little olive oil with salt and pepper for a few minutes. Set aside in a separate dish.
In the same pan melt the butter, add in the garlic cloves and leave for 30 seconds.
Afterwards, add in the broth and let sit for a few minutes.
Little by little add in the sour cream and gently mix it together with the broth. Make sure that you are using a low heat during this process. Do this until you get a creamy sauce.
Add in the parmesan cheese.
Lastly,throw the cooked prawns back in the pan and garnish with your freshly chopped parsley.
