Healthy Garlic Smoked Paprika Prawns

Healthy Garlic Smoked Paprika Prawns

If you fancy a change from chicken tonight, give these garlic smoked paprika prawns out. Here’s the recipe, courtesy of Gita Vadher!


  • 2 tsp good quality olive oil (or could use fry-light spray oil)
  • Half a finely chopped red onion
  • 2-4 tbsp of finely chopped garlic (adjust the quantity depending on how ‘garlicky’ you like things!)
  • 1-2 thinly sliced red chillies or a tsp of crushed red chilli flakes (again, adjust the quantity depending on how spicy you like things or just leave it out)
  • 300g raw king prawns
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Handful of finely chopped fresh parsley, to serve (optional)
  • Few squeezes of fresh lemon, to serve (optional)


  1. Add the olive oil to a non-stick pan.
  2. Sauté the red onion for a few minutes until softened.
  3. Add (lots of) finely chopped garlic and sauté for about 30 secs (be careful not to let the garlic burn).
  4. Add the red chilli or crushed red chilli flakes (optional).
  5. Add the raw king prawns and toss in the garlicky oil for a few minutes.
  6. When the prawns turn pink, add a little salt and 2 tsp of smoked paprika (this gives the dish a rich smokey taste).
  7. Sprinkle over some freshly chopped parsley and add a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice (optional).
  8. Serve with rice/salad.
