Prawns are a good source of protein. They are also full of calcium, iodine, and zinc.

While I often make dishes from chicken, I somehow miss the fact that I am not including seafood in my family’s diet as much as I should.

Hence, the recipe for Orange Garlic Prawns got brainstormed within minutes! Sautéed in butter, parsley, orange juice, orange zest, and garlic, Prawns turned to be really scrumptious, I must say!

Orange Garlic Prawns even had this nice flavor of pepper and paprika as I had added a pinch of these spices as well.

For the first time, even my kiddo completed his plate when I served it to him.

My family and I relished these lip-smacking Orange Garlic Prawns with a plateful of steamed rice.

Some leftover Prawns were relished by me the second day and I completely loved what I was eating, telling you!

Just then, I thought of sharing the recipe of Orange Garlic Prawns with my Whisk Affair community as well. So, there you go, read its recipe, and do tweet your thoughts.
