Creamy Butter Prawns

Creamy Butter Prawns is another great comfort food to tuck into during the current cold season here. The sauce is creamy, buttery, and a little spicy. It's made with whipping cream, butter, lots of curry leaves, Thai bird’s eye chilies, garlic, black pepper, and sea salt. As for the crustaceans, I used grilled River prawns here; but, you can easily substitute with crabs or lobsters. Do try the recipe and enjoy!

Creamy Butter Prawns


450 g (8 pcs) River Prawns, halved
2 Tbsp Peanut or Vegetable Oil
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Creamy Butter Sauce
3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
5 to 6 Sprigs Fresh Curry Leaves
5 to 6 Thai Bird’s Eye Chilies, chopped
2 Small Cloves Garlic, peeled, chopped
1 tsp All-Purpose Flour
1-Cup (250 ml) Whipping Cream
½ tsp Black Pepper
Sea Salt


Season the prawns with sea salt, ground black pepper and peanut oil. Turn the grill on high and grill the prawns for about 4 to 5 minutes on each side.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, add chilies, garlic, curry leaves and fry the mixture until fragrant, about 1 ½ minutes. Add flour and stir until well combine.

Mix in the cream and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and let is simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until the sauce has thicken. Season the sauce with black pepper and sea salt. Serve immediately with grilled prawns. (Optional: Prawns can be cook together with the sauce for about 2 minutes.)


  1. Thanks looks delicious and I love the quality of your pictures.

  2. Yum! I'd eat that in a heartbeat. Just wondering if you suck out all of the goodness out of the head of the prawn? I do, but I don't see other people doing it. I'm not a zombie I promise! It's rich, creamy goodness in there. Ok, maybe a little bit zombie.

  3. Looks so great! Thank you for sharing this.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
