Dublin Bay Prawns In Garlic And White Wine

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 150g (5 oz) butter
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 20g (3/4 oz)chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 32 Dublin Bay prawns
  • 150 ml (1/4 pint) white wine


  1. First, make the garlic butter – mix together the butter, garlic and parsley and blitz in the food processor for 1 minute.
  2. Next, shell the prawns and devein them and dry them off on paper towels. I sometimes leave the heads on and just remove the shell from the tail. But feel free to take the heads off altogether. They make a great stock.
  3. Heat the olive oil till smoking hot and gently add the prawns.
  4. Cook for about 30 seconds till golden brown and then turn them over
  5. add the garlic butter to the pan and just as it starts to turn brown add the white wine.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the chopped parsley.
  7. Serve and enjoy


if you can’t get a hold of Dublin bay prawns, substitute another type of prawn or shrimp.
