Prawns with Tomato, Garlic and Cilantro

My favorite recipe for shrimps, simple, tasty and healthy, great for the summer.

That’s why I send this for my entry of beautiful bones: osteoporosis food event.

Just don’t forget that the cilantro is the key ingredient for the perfect touch of  this meal’s taste.


  • 250 gr Prawns
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (sliced)
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 Medium Tomato (diced)
  • 1 Tbs Olive oil
  • 40 gr Butter
  • Salt
  • Cilantro (chopped for garnish)


  1.  Heat olive oil and butter, until the butter melt down
  2. Add garlic, saute for 2 -3 minutes
  3. Add Prawns, saute until their both sides are done
  4. Add tomato, saute for 1-2 minutes
  5. Add salt, stir and remove from the heat, garnish with cilantro
  6. Serve warm with rice or bread
  1. Hi Zita,
