Salt and Pepper Prawns

One dish I can never get enough of is this salt and pepper prawn. It is easy, quick and done with minimum ingredients.



  • Medium Prawns – 500 gms, peeled and deveined
  • Salt – 1 tsp
  • Cracked black pepper – 1 tbsp.
  • Corn flour – 4 tbsp.
  • Butter – 1 tbsp.
  • Onion – 1, thinly sliced
  • Capsicum – 1/2 , thinly sliced
  • Green chilli – 2 , thinly sliced

Combine cornflour, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the prawns and toss well to coat all the prawns.
In a large non stick frying pan, heat the butter and then add the prawns in batches stirring occasionally. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes or until they turn pink in color.

In the same pan, add the thinly sliced onion, capsicum and green chilli with a pinch of salt and stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes. You may need to add some butter if required.

Place prawn on a plate. Garnish with chilli, onion, capsicum and serve.
