Prawns are often considered to be large sized shrimp, although both come from different families. Still prawns taste similar to shrimp and have a similar nutritional profile. Including prawns in your regular diet means that you get their numerous health benefits.

Garlic flavour goes very well with prawns if teamed up with some butter! Crispy Garlic Prawns is one such dish where the prawns are marinated in garlic seasoning and fried in garlic butter!

7. First, dust the prawns with all purpose flour to coat well on both sides.

8. Next, dip the coated prawns in beaten egg and immediately roll them in the fresh breadcrumbs to coat well on both sides.

9. Keep refrigerated for about half an hour and pat on both sides for the breadcrumbs to set well on the prawns.
