Easy Chili Prawns

The easiest recipe for Chili Prawns with spicy butter sauce that’s too good not to drizzle over rice…

Somebody was craving for prawns the other day… and this easy Chili Prawns was just begging to be made. So this happened for lunch.

Well, it was more because I was road testing a few bottles of chili garlic that would be great with Chili Prawns. peanutbutter was requesting Chili Prawns for lunch on Christmas Day and I just gave him a sneak preview of what he could indulge on. The first bottle of chili I tried was super duper hot! I believe I just got my tongue burnt but it was so so good too at the same time. Ykaie wanted it so much, she ate it with ice cream on the side to cool her off.. LOL!

This week before Christmas is the busiest week ever! I find myself with little to no sleep…and I felt so under the weather today.

Last Sunday was a celebration of Tita Becky’s birthday. She treated us in Tagaytay and our first stop was to get coffee and hot choco at Bag of Beans in Twin Lakes.

Immediately followed by lunch at Lime and Basil Restarant. And then we were off to buy Tagaytay goodies like Langka, Choco Milk, Nuts, and Kesong Puti at Buffy’s, and Pomelo on the roadside.

Monday was the start of Ykaie’s exam at school. Tuesday was spent accompanying Tita Eva at Asien Eye for her laser and injection. And hello Wednesday, Ykaie’s last day of school before Christmas vacation. I woke up early to cook Tuna Pesto Spaghetti for her to bring to her Christmas party.

Tomorrow, I’d like to go to the mall and start buying things for Noche Buena and Christmas.

For tonight, I’m leaving you with thoughts of buttery, garlicky, spicy Chili Prawns to dream about and make for lunch tomorrow.

P.S. You’ll need extra rice for this. That spicy butter sauce is made for drizzling over rice.

  1. Lagi akong may stock na chili garlic sauce sa ref, cause I also use it in cooking Asian style pasta. I’m planning to make my own version of chili garlic sauce. Thank you for sharing your recipe! I bet it’s yummy kahit super simple lang ang ingredients 🙂

  2. I’m not into spicy food so I only cook buttered garlic shrimp or salted egg shrimp. But we always have chili pepper at home so my husband can add chili on his food. 🙂

  3. This is easy to prepare and my husband will definitely love this one. I will try this as soon as makabili ako ng fresh prawns. Bookmarking this recipe of yours. 🙂

  4. Gah this was a hard post to read – in a good way haha! I used to love prawns and shrimps but I had to stop using them because I suddenly got allergic to seafood. So frustrating!

  5. I’m not into spicy dishes, but my husband and teen are. I’ll be sure to try your recipe next time they crave for prawns. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  6. I’m beginning to fall in love with spicy dishes lately and your chili prawns just made it on time for dinner today. Do you recommend any chili sauce brand, I’m on my way now to the supermarket?

  7. Same problem with Rowena, di ko alam kung fresh ba ang hipon. Kaya nung may nakita akong hipon sa Fisher Mall inside their aquarium, bumili na ako, sure na sure akong fresh!

  8. I love prawns in whatever way it is cooked. But I have to say my most favorite is the lemon butter version. This chili prawns look really yummy though!

  9. Prawns are my FAVORITE! Actually, SEAFOOD is my ultimate favourite. Just a suggestion – my mom is such a spoiler and what she does with her chill prawns is semi-peeling them already. All you have to do is take out the shell by your fork but it’s basically peeled. Super convenient plus flavour seeps inside the prawn meat too. 🙂

  10. If you love food it’s pretty easy to whip up something special as the chili prawns you featured here. This recipe is a no brainer great for busy moms. Now I have to go get some juicy prawns and use those chili in a bottle..yummy.

  11. Thanks to your recipe I remembered my unopened bottle of Kitchen Ala Ching spicy tomato garlic sauce. I used to make this dish kasi favorite ng bunso ko ang prawns, but it will give a kick to put some spicy garlic.

  12. There is this drama book I read a long time ago,” twelve nights” . “if music is the food of love, let me have more of it…”. Food has always been used in celebrations, ceremonies and to identify with people all around the world. Shrimps (seafood) is a kind of dish considered to be for the rich in some parts of the world. I wish to have a taste of your shrimp recipe.

  13. Pag fresh ang hipon masarap talaga! Nagutom ako sa luto mo na ito Mommy Peachy? Thanks sa recipe!
