Cooking 101: Headless Prawns Sauteed In Garlic

After a long time, I had my Saturday for myself

I stayed home and enjoyed the luxury of my king-sized bed

Then there’s this sudden urge to cook that enveloped me

So I rummage my fridge and cupboards

And prepared for my role as Sabado Chef


1 frozen pack of headless prawns (available at Robinson’s)

5 cloves of large-size garlic

1 tablespoon of palm oil

1 sachet of Star Margarine

Tabasco Hot Sauce

Knorr Liquid Seasoning

Pinch of salt


  1. Wash the headless prawns and drain for excess water.  Set aside.
  2. Slice the garlic but not too thinly.  Remember that you have to fry them later.
  3. Heat the frying pan and set to medium heat (maintain at medium till you sauté the prawns)
  4. Pour the palm oil and the garlic slices together.  Don’t wait for the oil to be hot.  This way the flavor of garlic stays on and “rubs” to whatever dish you’re cooking.
  5. Put in the margarine and continuously stir the garlic to avoid burning/over-cooking them.
  6. When the sauteed garlic turns golden brown, take them out of the pan and set aside.
  7. Pour all the headless prawns in the frying pan and stir continuously.
  8. When the prawns start to change to red, pour  both Tabasco Hot Sauce and Knorr Liquid Seasoning to taste.
  9. Put in a dash of salt.
  10. Put in half of the golden-brown garlic and stir.
  11. Remember not to over-cook the prawns.  Transfer to serving dish when done.
  12. Used the remaining golden-brown garlic as garnish.
  13. Enjoy your meal.  Bon appetit.

  • Tabasco sauce, eh? I LOVE IT! Masubukan nga next week. Sanay ako na garlic lang ang kasama, e. Na-i-imagine ko na that the tabasco sauce and liquid seasoning will add a different dimension to the normal sauteed prawns. Thanks, Orman!
