Prawns with cumin and garlic butter

Lyndey Milans Prawns with Cumin and Garlic Butter

Preparation time
20 minutes
Cooking time
3 minutes

The earthy and fragrant nature of the cumin prawns means that a supple light red like our featured Gamay from Aylesbury Estate is a mouth-watering match.


24 extra large green king prawns 

100g unsalted butter 

2 teaspoons cumin seeds 

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

½ teaspoon turmeric

2 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 teaspoon lemon zest

Crusty bread to serve (optional)



¼ cup (60ml) rice vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon (20ml) tamari or soy sauce

1 tablespoon (20ml) toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon peeled, finely grated ginger

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


Asian slaw

2 cups (160g) finely shredded red cabbage

2 cups (160g) finely shredded green cabbage

1 cup (approx. 2 medium/240g) carrots, grated

100g snow peas, thinly sliced lengthways

4 medium green onions (shallots), thinly sliced

¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

1. For the dressing: shake together in a screwtop jar to combine.

2. For the slaw: Combine all ingredients and half the seeds in a bowl with the dressing. Season to taste. Cover and leave for flavours to infuse. Garnish with extra basil and remaining seeds. 

3. For the butter: melt butter in a small saucepan. Lightly crush the cumin seeds in a mortar and pestle and add to the pan with the garlic and turmeric. Cook until aromatic, then stir through parsley and lemon zest.

4. For the prawns: pre-heat the BBQ to medium; split prawns along their backs, open up to flatten and devein. Leave head on or off, as preferred. Cook prawns flesh-side down for 30 seconds only, then put shell side down, spoon over the butter and cook until opaque, approximate 1–2 minutes more. Cooking time depends on the size of the prawns. Serve immediately with slaw and crusty bread, if desired.
