300 gms small prawns deveined and tails removed
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp chilli flakes or as per taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and clean the prawns and keep aside. Preferably, keep the prawns in a strainer to let go of excess water.
In a pan heat the butter and just before it starts browning, add the lemon juice. Now add the garlic and fry for 2-3 minutes till the raw smell goes and turns a bit golden. Now add the prawns and sauté on medium heat till they turn pink. Add the chilli flakes, salt, and pepper and mix. If the prawns leave a lot of water, put the gas on high till most of it is dried up, for about 2-3 minutes while stirring constantly. Take care not to over fry else the prawns will be rubbery. Remove from heat and serve.
