Cooking Steps

[MED] 1-2 min + 1-2 min

[LOW] 30 sec + 30 sec + 3 min


7-8 live spot prawns or shellfish of your choice
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
½ lemon, some for squeezing and some cut in wedges for garnish

  1. Preheat the pot with [MED] heat. Once [GRILL OK] sign appears, spread olive oil evenly and sear prawns for 1-2 minutes on one side until fragrant.

  2. Once toasted, flip the prawns and sear the other side for another 1-2 minutes.

  3. Switch to [LOW] and move the prawns to one side of the pot to create space; add butter. Once butter is melted, add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add jalapeño and cook for another 30 seconds. Season with a pinch of salt.

  4. Stir to coat the prawns with garlic and jalapeño. Cook covered for 3 minutes.

  5. Squeeze lemon juice to finish. Garnish with more lemon wedges. Serve warm.

  • Try not to move too much when searing the prawns. This will help achieve nice color.
