On Mothers Day I had a craving for some really creamy garlic prawns, so hubby and Miss Tween spoilt me by cooking some for dinner. It was so delicious, and I literally had to laugh out loud when hubby found a recipe and it only required on large clove or garlic, he wanted it to […]

    This was my first time cooking prawns, and this recipe was just perfect. So easy and incredibly delicious. Kudos to Mr. Organised. What veggies do you usually serve with them, though? I did steamed cucumber (as I usually do with seafood) but I’d like something different next time.ReplyCancel

  • Chrissy

    I must steal this recipe!ReplyCancel

  • angela

    sorry but made this dish tonight and seriously lacked body and flavour added french shallot a little bit of red chilli more cream and fresh parmesan cheese and tasted a lot!! betteralso put it over linguine instead of rice anyway try the changes gives a whole lot more dimension to the flavour.

    Gotta try this !ReplyCancel

  • Jessica Richards

    I’ve been using this recipe for a year or two now, and it’s definitely a fail proof, better than the restaurants’ creamy garlic prawns… I’m often disappointed when eating similar Dishes out, because this dish sets such high standards! Brilliant, simply marvellous!ReplyCancel

  • Sing

    Hi there,

    Do you use all purpose flour or cornflour and do you use thickened cream or double cream

    Thank you:)ReplyCancel

  • Katrina

    Hi Sing, i use all purpose flour and with the cream i just use thickened cream.ReplyCancel

  • […] I struggle with the concept of picking up a prawn, ripping off it’s head and then a few seconds later eating it.  But don’t get me wrong I’m happy to eat it, I just don’t want the whole thing in my hands tearing it apart, Mrs Woog peeled me a few prawns when we only had platters of non-peeled prawns or crabs.  I am very very appreciative of my hubby for always peeling my prawns.  I would like to get over this phobia as there are many meals I would like to make that include prawns but don’t purely because I hate asking hubby to peel them all the time.  View Creamy Garlic Prawns recipe here.

    Hi Katrina,

    Sorry again but did you use salted or unsalted butter for this recipe? I can’t wait to try out this recipe:)

    Thank you.


  • Katrina

    Hi Sing, I used salted butter. Think it just gives it a little more flavour.ReplyCancel

  • Huda

    Hello! Do you have any recommendations on what I can replace the White Wine with? Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Huda, hmmm you could try adding a little stock in replace. I have honestly only ever used the wine.ReplyCancel

  • Yvonne B

    This is just like the recipe I use, I made it up after having garlic prawns many years???? ago at a restaurant. I just jiggled the ingredients and taste tested to get it right. You can also use this recipe, maybe make it a little thicker adding some fish and calamari inside a crepe. Seafood crepe..yumReplyCancel

  • MC

    Kat, my daughter is severely allergic to mustard. Any idea on substitutes or if you think it could be left out? It looks like an amazing dish.ReplyCancel

    • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

      Hi Megan, I would probably suggest leaving it out. As it is only 1/2 a teaspoon there shouldn’t be a lot of difference in taste.ReplyCancel

This Salmon Curried Salmon Pie is absolutely delicious and would have to be up there in my Top 5 favourite dinners. Ittrulyis a winter comfort food. It can also be made with either Tuna or Salmon, really depends what you have in your pantry at the time. While the rice is cooking you can prepare […]

  • Would you be able to freeze this?ReplyCancel

    • No I wouldn’t think so Karen as the sauce is made from a base of mayo and milk I would be worried of it separating when defrosting.ReplyCancel

  • Samantha

    Hi Katrina
    We’re not big fish eaters. Have you ever substituted the tuna with chicken?
    p.s. I have pinned this. I hope you don’t mindReplyCancel

  • Amanda

    Made this for last nights dinner….used a shredded BBQ Chicken (we are not fish eaters either) and also added some corn – it was delicious and a huge hit with hubby and the kids as well. Thanks for sharing Katrina.
    Def a keeper :-)ReplyCancel

    • that is a great alternative, chicken and corn always go nicely together.ReplyCancel

      • susie

        you could do chicken and spinach too. yum!ReplyCancel

        • Katrina - The Organised Housewife

          Yes that sounds lovely Susie!ReplyCancel

  • Prahala Rajendran

    I made this last night and it was delicious!! Everyone loved it including my 20 month old toddler.. Thanks Katrina.. ReplyCancel

  • Linda Needs

    This sounds awesome, however my daughter is allergic to egg. Can you suggest what I could do/use to replace the egg in the base and mayo in the sauce? Thanks ReplyCancel

  • Renee

    I wasn’t too keen on this recipe, it was too rich.
    I think I will leave out the mayonnaise and lemon juice next time and just use a curry/ white sauce.ReplyCancel

  • Tracey

    I love Tuna, as well as my kids but I thought I would make this with leftover cooked rice, shredded chicken and corn but less curry powder and it was YUMMY! Another great recipe Katrina, thank you again :)ReplyCancel

      Ooh that sounds delicious, Tracey.:)ReplyCancel

I’ve been trying to add more fish into our weekly meal plans, and coming up with different and creative ways of serving it.

We are trying to add a bit more fresh fish to our meal plan. I love salmon, actually I’m happy to have it simply seasoned with salt and pepper, but when I made this meal I thought some curry sauce would team together nicely with the rice and vegetables. It was very tasty! Salmon […]
