Cooking Fun - Garlic Prawns

When I've spent time in my sewing room all day, this makes the perfect quick  meal

This is one of the easiest and tastiest garlic prawns I've made and  so Quick.
It takes longer to peel the prawns & cook the rice than to cook the prawns.

 Garlic Prawns
Serves 4
Preparation Time: 15 to 30 minutes
750g uncooked prawns ( buy 1kilo raw prawns  by the time you peel them its roughly 750g)
1 large clove garlic or 2 if you like garlic
1 cup chicken stock
2 T white wine
115g butter
1 T flour
½ c cream
1/2 t mustard
1 T chopped fresh parsley

Serve with boiled rice

 It takes about 10 minutes to cook prawns, so cook rice first, while rice is cooking peel prawns, by the time you have peeled all the prawns, it will then be time to cook them. Meal cooked in around 30 minutes and smells  and taste devine.
1.       Heat butter & crush garlic in pan
2.       Add flour stir until combines. Remove from heat
