Prawns in Garlic Butter with Samphire | Recipe

Good morning folks! Another recipe for you today.
Some of you may never have heard of samphire. Samphire is a plant associated with the coast and grows on rocks. It's kind of like a seaweed I suppose but it doesn't grow in the sea. It is very good for you but can be incredibly salty (as one would expect from a coastal plant). It goes really well with fish of all sorts and can be added to salads.
This is a really quick and easy recipe that you can throw together of an evening when you can't be bothered to do anything fancy.

This recipe serves two.


  • 225g peeled and cooked jumbo king prawns
  • 140g butter
  • 150g green beans
  • 115g samphire
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 sprigs parsley
  • olive oil


  • Put the butter in a skillet and put over a medium heat. While the butter is melting, peel and crush your garlic and add to the skillet. Chop your parsley and add to the skillet.
  • Put your prawns into the skillet and cook in the butter for five minutes or until the prawns are heated through, stirring regularly.
  • Cut the ends off your green beans. Put your samphire and green beans into a small wok or pan and stir fry with a drizzle of olive oil for a few minutes, just to heat them up.
  • Spoon the samphire and green beans onto two plates and place the king prawns on top. Drizzle the garlic butter over the top of it all.
  • If you have the energy, I like to serve this with roasted sweet potato.
  • Enjoy!

Let me know if you make this, tag me, tweet me, link me etc. I'd love to know how yours turns out!
