Garlic butter spot prawns | Alaska Gold Seafood


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 lbs. wild Alaskan spot prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup Alaskan grown tomatoes, diced
  • 3/4 cup Alaskan grown fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • fresh cooked pasta or grilled bread, for serving


Melt butter with garlic in a small pan over medium-low heat, just until garlic begins to brown. Remove from heat.

Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Pat prawns dry with a paper towel. Add prawns and cook, shaking pan back and forth to prevent sticking, until prawns begin to turn opaque, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and basil, then add garlic butter; turn off heat.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with cooked pasta or grilled bread.
