Garlic Butter Prawns | How to make easy Butter Garlic Prawns | Easy Prawn Recipes | International Prawn Recipes

Though I have heard this Garlic Butter Prawns or Butter Garlic Prawns, I have not tried this recipe, until I saw this recipe here. It looks so damn easy and I immediately went out to try. I finished cooking within 15 min and I loved the taste. I gave to my daughter and she liked the taste but my son said he needs more spicy and asked me to modify the the dish to prawn roast or prawn thokku with lots of Indian masalas. If he starts liking one taste, he always wants the same. But anyhow I loved the taste and finished this Butter garlic prawns as the side dish for plain rice.
