Italian styled Garlic Prawns with Spicy Sausages © Kaishin Chu 2008
I made this for a potluck gathering, it turned out really well as it reheated under the broiler perfectly. Don’t forget to have some good bread for dipping and soaking up the juices at the end.
2 Cups of fresh prawns or room temp. defrosted ones, shells off with tails on (easier as finger food)
1 cup spicy Italian sausages, sliced about 1/4″ – 3/8″ thick pieces
1/2 cup minced red onions
1/4 cup diced red and yellow peppers + 1 TBsp for garnishing
1 Tbsp. crushed or finely minced garlic
2 tsp. paprika
Sea Salt and Peper
1/4 tsp. chili flakes
chopped fresh parsley to garnish
Use a decent amount of olive oil (2-3 tbsp) and butter (1-2 tbsp) to quickly heat the garlic, onion, chili flakes, and peppers, just till the aroma comes out. Then add the sausages in to cook. saute until cooked through. Then add Prawns, and sprinkle in the paprika, stir and sautee till just slightly undercooked, then turn off heat, this way the prawn will get cooked by the remaining heat, and not get tough. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Plate it and add parsley and bell pepper to garnish.
