[Recipe] Garlic Lemon Prawns using Airfryer

May 01, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-

Prawns are a good source of proteins, although I have to admit that I try not to have them too often because of their high cholesterol content.

Whenever I have these, I make sure that I buy the freshest so they are worth my calories (or rather, cholesterol)! Featured here are Spencer Gulf King Prawns from Grand Hyatt Singapore's The Marketplace, but I am sure you can get fresh ones at your nearby wet market too.

These garlic lemon prawns are really easy to cook and I especially love the intense garlic flavours just when I open the airfryer lid. So good! :)

Garlic Lemon Prawns using Airfryer
Serves 2

6 prawns
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 fresh rosemary sprig, chopped
1 tsp mixed dried herbs
1 tsp olive oil
1 slice of lemon
Salt and pepper to taste


1) Prepare.
Remove the head and black vein (intestine). Use kitchen scissors to snip off the legs.

2) Marinate.
In a bowl, mix the garlic, herbs, oil, lemon, salt and pepper. Rub the prawns with the marinates and store in fridge for at least 1 hour.

3) Preheat.
When you are ready to cook, preheat the airfryer at 180 degrees Celcius for 5 minutes.

4) Airfry.
Cook in airfryer at 180 degrees Celcius for 8 minutes. Flip over to check that they are cooked well.

Serve hot and enjoy!
